Individuals found to be appropriate for the RAP research program (see Referral Process) may be eligible to receive a variety of clinical services through the RAP Program or the outpatient psychiatry departments at Zucker Hillside Hospital.
Services are offered on an as needed basis and MAY include:
Note: Currently, family psychoeducational sessions and social skills groups are being provided free of charge to eligible participants as part of a research study. No costs will be incurred for participating in this study.
Affiliated outpatient services are billed to the patient's insurance plan. This includes the initial intake assessment, individual and family therapy sessions, and medication consultations and ongoing visits. Patients/families will be financially responsible for all applicable co-payments based on their insurance plans. Many insurance plans are accepted by the North Shore-LIJ Health System. If insurance is not available, fees for evaluation and treatment are offered on a sliding scale, based upon documented income.
Outreach & Education for Professionals
In addition, the RAP Program staff provide educational trainings to mental health and education professionals in the Queens/Long Island area (subject to availability). If you or your professional group are interested in scheduling a training, please contact Dr. Andrea Auther at email@example.com.
