Off-campus private and agency providers of mental health and substance abuse treatment services

This listing of practitioners is provided by the SUNY Oneonta Counseling Center, as a convenience for our students. It does not mean that we endorse any specific practitioner, group, or agency.

When contacting these professionals understand that many have small offices, with no secretary and only an answering machine. Be prepared to leave a message and they will call you back. When you speak with the person, be prepared to say a little about the kind of problems you have been experiencing, and ask if they work with that kind of problem. You should ask what their fee is, and what kinds of health insurance they will accept if you are planning to use health insurance. It will help if you find out beforehand, with your parent, partner, or employer, what the name of your health insurance is, and whether there are specific procedures you must use to get mental health or substance use treatment covered (For example, do you need "prior approval"?). If you do not have insurance and will need to pay for this yourself, some practices have a "sliding fee scale" which sets a fee based upon your income and other variables. The Otsego County Mental Health Clinic and Catholic Charities are two agencies that have sliding fee scales. There may be others, and some practitioners are willing to negotiate a fee when you are paying cash and not relying on health insurance reimbursement.

Find out how soon you can have an appointment. Also, a large amount of research suggests that the most important variable is the "client - therapist match", that is, finding someone you feel you can trust, and who you feel comfortable relating to. It may not be the first person you talk to, and that's OK. If you want help in deciding where to start, contact the SUNY Oneonta Counseling Center at 436-3368.
