Intake

Individuals who think they are suffering from the consequences of adulthood trauma can receive treatment with our trauma therapists from our Adult Treatment Service of the ICP Clinic.

The Adult Treatment Service offers individual psychotherapy (1-2 times weekly) and referral for supportive psychiatric medication treatment when needed.  Our therapists appreciate the uniqueness of each person’s life experience and cultural background.  Our patients come from a range of ethnic, economic and vocational backgrounds.

An initial intake assessment appointment is usually scheduled within a few days after you contact ICP.  At an intake interview, you and an intake worker discuss your situation, our process for selection of a therapist, treatment planning, options for referral, and fee as determined on a sliding scale.

Most intakes are completed in one appointment; in some special circumstances an additional appointment or a consultation with a psychiatrist might be necessary. These appointments would require additional fees.

Our intakes and treatment sessions are by appointment only.  We do not offer walk-in or crisis services to people seeking immediate help.  We suggest a local hospital emergency room if you are in need of immediate consultation.  We do not have a psychiatrist on premises.

The start of psychotherapy is a big step.  Our goal is to make it a constructive experience for you.  There may be times when our waiting period for an intake appointment is too long for your needs.  Or, we may believe that our services are not right for you.  In either case, we will make every effort to provide you with other referrals.

If you would like to arrange an intake appointment or would like further information, please call ICP at (212) 333-3444.
