Northwoods does not bill insurance companies directly, but we can provide cost breakdowns for financial sponsors to submit to your insurance carrier. More details provided upon request.

Family Counseling

Family counseling is offered no sooner than the student’s completion of residential programming (No exceptions without administrative and clinical approval).

Our family sessions are offered after completion of the residential programming and consist of 2-3 family sessions.  We ensure that there is time for families to spend time together after the first session has occurred.

Fees for this service are $1000 for up to 2 individuals, all additional participants will incur a fee of $250 per session.
