F A Q

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get started?
Give us a call today at 913-725-0095. Our team will answer your questions, discuss our program and cost, and help you get started.
How long does treatment take?
Great question! Our Intensive Outpatient Program is highly individualized and the treatment length is specific to your need. We require a minimum commitment of four weeks and will collaborate with you and your outpatient team to determine the exact duration of treatment.
Are there any requirements for me to participate in the Intensive Outpatient Program?

There are a few. Our team will complete a phone assessment with you to determine if our program is a good fit for you. If it is, we ask that you receive a medical evaluation from your physician and also obtain some laboratory data (aka bloodwork).

What days and hours will I attend the program?

We offer programming every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 4:30-7:30 pm.

During the weeks of Memorial Day and Labor Day, programming will take place Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings.

During the weeks of Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year, programming will take place Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings.

Will I continue to see my outpatient treatment team?

Most definitely! It is important for you to maintain treatment with your outpatient treatment team, including your therapist, dietitian, medical provider, and any other professionals vital to your recovery. Our groups may create an opportunity for you to dive deeper into certain issues in individual therapy. Conversely, issues from individual therapy may be further explored in our groups.

Nutrition recommendations can shift during the course of treatment, making it necessary to work with your outpatient dietitian. And, regular follow-up with your medical provider is important to ensure medical stability while in our program.

What if I don't already have an outpatient treatment team?
Not a problem. We work closely with therapists, registered dietitians, and other professionals and can refer you today.
What is included in the cost of treatment?
We pack a lot into our program. All program components, including recovery and process groups, yoga/movement, expressive arts, spiritual development, nutrition education, menu planning, culinary skill-building, and meal support are included.
In addition, we provide one take-out meal each week (you’ll bring your dinner the other two evenings).
Does insurance cover the cost of treatment?
This is a tricky question. Insurance plans vary greatly and may or may not provide coverage.
Our goal is to provide you with the highest quality treatment that isn’t dictated by insurance. Bellatore does not bill insurance and is considered ‘Out of Network.’ We will provide you with a receipt for services, useful in seeking insurance reimbursement.
As you explore potential coverage, consider asking the following questions of your insurance provider:
What are my out of network mental health benefits?
What is my deductible, and what amount has been met?
What is the coverage amount, per session, for an Intensive Outpatient Program?
Is a referral required from a primary care physician?
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept all major credit cards, cash and check.
