MSMG Behavioral Health
Welcome to MSMG Behavioral Health in Johnson City
At Mountain States Medical Group Behavioral Health, we work with children and adults who need help dealing with life’s problems.
About our therapists
The job of a therapist is to help you figure out what works best in your life and in your particular situation.
A therapist will not judge you. Sometimes you just need someone to talk to whom you can trust.
What to expect
When you come to your appointment, you’ll spend about 50 minutes talking to your therapist about whatever it is you want to discuss.
Common issues include:
- Family problems
Your first visit
Your therapist will ask several questions during your first visit to help him or her understand your situation.
Almost everything you tell a therapist is strictly confidential.
Some situations must be acted upon, however, including:
- Someone being a danger to himself or herself, or to someone else (suicidal or homicidal)
- A child or elderly person being mistreated
- Court order to release the client’s record
The only other way information about a client’s behavioral health care can be shared is if the client tells us to share it and gives us written permission.
Insurance and billing
We participate with most insurance providers, but it will be the family’s responsibility to check with their insurance to verify coverage.
All questions regarding billing for services should be made to our office.
