Your time is valuable. We know that. That’s why we offer “open access” walk-in hours for new clients seeking services.

¿Habla español? ¡Sí, podemos ayudar a las familias de habla hispana durante estas horas!

What to Expect?

Please arrive between 8:45 AM and 10:45 AM for morning walk-in hours and 12:45 PM – 2:45 PM for afternoon walk-in hours. We are now holding a waitlist for all commercial insurance holders.

Paperwork must be completed and submitted before you may meet with your intake clinician. If your paperwork is not completed, you will be required to complete your paperwork upon arrival. Depending on wait times, you may be rescheduled to another day.

After the paperwork is completed, you will meet with registration to review your paperwork, including client rights and responsibilities, financial agreements, and necessary releases of information. You and/or your child will meet with an intake clinician who will provide a thorough assessment and treatment recommendations, which may include group therapy. If treatment through Agency programs is recommended, you will be assigned an ongoing clinician.

All adult intakes will take place during Groton Open Access hours. We are now holding a waitlist for all adults.
