The Psychotherapy Center (PC) is the community service agency of CPPNJ. It is one of the major ways in which CPPNJ contributes to the community. Since 1987 it has been providing affordable, intensive, quality psychotherapy for adults who do not have insurance or who prefer to work outside the constrictions of managed care. The PC is intended to give CPPNJ candidates an opportunity to work long term with patients, and to build a private practice. The PC provides services to everyone regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, or disability.
How the PC Works
Prospective patients are contacted by a PC screener within 48 hours of calling our toll- free number: 1-800-870-5940. The patient is then assigned a therapist, and therapist and patient negotiate a fee based on financial need and in accordance with our universal sliding fee scale.
The PC provides an alternative to managed care and operates on an out-of-network basis. The PC is not reimbursed directly by insurance companies. However, patients with insurance may submit claims for out of network treatment to their insurance carriers on their own.
