The CARE Clinic is a counseling center with offices in Northwest Arkansas and Fort Smith that offers affordable counseling to anyone in the community.
People seek counseling with a desire for growth and change. The process involves meeting with a trained professional.
The CARE Clinic counselors are master's level students at John Brown University in the final stages of the counseling program. The CARE Clinic also offers services with licensed professionals at a different rate for those who do not wish to meet with a counseling intern.
The counselors at the CARE Clinic are trained to incorporate spirituality if the client wishes. However, counselors will respect those who do not seek a spiritual component.
The CARE Clinic offers many services and will not discriminate based on age, gender, or personal values.
The counselors at the CARE Clinic are trained to treat many issues. The staff and counselors will do their best to meet the needs of each individual or family.
A typical session lasts fifty minutes and meets on a weekly basis. Other arrangements can be made to meet the needs of each individual or family.
CARE Clinic fees range from $10 to $50 and are based on family size and gross annual income. Rates may be higher for licensed professional counselors.
Cash or check is accepted at each clinic; credit cards are accepted at some locations. Although some of our licensed professional counselors accept insurance for their sessions, our clinic does not accept insurance at this time; however, a receipt may be given if the client wishes to file on his or her own.
Regarding confidentiality, each counselor is trained to follow the Arkansas Counseling Association's Code of Ethics and federal HIPAA guidelines.
