Behavioral Health Services
Just like with Teen Court, our therapy services will continue to provide alternative options to repair harm and prevent future criminal behaviors, by providing therapy services we can now help individuals one on one in understanding themselves. We, at Forge Evolution, want to give every teen a chance to make the right choices and use their voice.
Forge Evolution also provides therapeutic services to those not involved in Teen Court. By offering services to our Forge Evolution clients, this allows us to provide prevention interventions and a safe space to communicate openly about their life challenges.
At Forge Evolution, we are dedicated to building better lives for our teens, regardless of the challenges they face. We offer a variety of programs and classes including Teen Court. We are now proudly offering additional services to our teens as they enter our program with therapeutic services.
In therapy, they will get the benefits of understanding themselves and their choices while providing them a safe space to express their feelings, thoughts and challenges freely. Thus, empowering them to make the changes they desire to better themselves.
If you are interested in therapy services please reach out to Randee Thomas, LPC at firstname.lastname@example.org.

TEEN COURT CLIENTS
Clients participating in behavioral health services that are Court Ordered through Teen Court for a minimum of 6 weeks will be at the cost of $60.00 per session. Cost can be covered if the defendant has Medicaid or other insurances accepted by the organization. If the defendant is to use insurances accepted by the organization, the defendant is responsible for any co-pays. A sliding scale will be available to defendants (if needed) and addressed with the therapist prior to services beginning.
FORGE EVOLUTION CLIENTS
Clients participating in behavioral health services that are requesting therapeutic services and will be paying with cash, will fall under our cash pay clients. If our clients have Medicaid, we will bill Medicaid for services.
MENTAL HEALTH ASSESSMENTS ONLY
Clients participating in mental health evaluations that have been requested through the court will cost $200.00. Clients will receive a complete evaluation with recommendations given to the court (if applicable).
CASH PAY CLIENTS
Our standard out-of-pocket fee is $60.00 for a 50-minute session. Forge Evolution offers a sliding scale that can be discussed with the therapists. Forge Evolution requests payment by debit/credit card or cash at the time service is rendered. If any payments are returned due to insufficient funds, a $25 fee will be charged to you. As a general policy, the organization requests that clients pay directly for fees unless otherwise specified. Meetings with auxiliary medical or legal consultants, DHS, Probation or Parole either by phone or in person and report writing will be billed at the standard fee of $85 per hour. If payment is in arrears more than 90 days and a fee payment schedule cannot be agreed upon, your account will be turned over to a collection agency, an attorney, or small claims court.
