Dear BWG Clients:

As the Coronavirus situation continues to unfold, BWG will continue to work remotely from home until further notice. We will continue to monitor the situation for further revisions if needed based on recommendations from the CDC and other national, state and local regulatory and health authorities.

Outpatient Therapy/Medication Management

Intensive Outpatient Programs/Aftercare Programs

We are working remotely from home. We are not cancelling your appointments.We encourage the use of Zoom for virtual sessions. Your therapist/office staff will be sending more information to you regarding use of the Zoom platform and how to register for the virtual sessions. In the event that you are not able to participate in virtual visits OR prefer phone sessions, the phone can be used for a phone therapy session.

Psychological Testing Sessions

Psychological Testing sessions will continue remotely. Certain Psychological Testing sessions may be completed in the office on a very limited basis if it absolutely cannot be done remotely. All BWG cleaning/disinfecting/sanitizing policies and procedures will be put in place.

We wish all of you health and safety during this time and are committed to ensuring that all of you receive the care that you need and deserve.

With gratitude for your cooperation and understanding,
