At CPC we provide specialized care for children, teens and families. Our services are delivered with dignity and respect, and we meet children and young people where they are in their mental health and recovery journey. It is vital to our evidence-based practices, that we make space for hope, healing and the promise of new possibilities.

Individual, Group & Family Therapy

Youth individual therapy for mental health and/or co-occurring substance use disorders is available in Freehold, Howell and Red Bank. Sessions are typically every other week and can take place in combination with psychiatric services.

Individual therapy or counseling is when a person speaks with a trained therapist in a safe and confidential environment to explore and understand feelings and behaviors and gain coping skills. Individual therapy is effective for both mental health and substance abuse issues.​ At CPC, youth and their families can meet with licensed social workers and counselors to process their emotions, work toward their goals and improve their lives. The focus of therapy may include emotional regulation, mindfulness, processing and managing trauma.

Psychiatric and Medication Management

Appointments are available during the week in Freehold, Howell & Red Bank. The pharmacy is co-located in our Red Bank office.

Individuals seek psychiatric help for themselves or members of their family or children for many reasons. The problems can be sudden, such as a panic attack, thoughts of suicide, or frightening hallucinations including hearing "voices." Or they may be more long-term, such as feelings of sadness, hopelessness, or anxiousness that never seem to lift or problems functioning, causing everyday life to feel distorted or out of control. CPC's psychiatrists and nurse practitioners provide services to diagnose and treat mental, emotional, behavioral and substance use disorders in children and adults.

Project Insight 

Project Insight is available at locations in Freehold and Red Bank.
