Services Provided: Volunteers In Psychotherapy (VIP) is an IRS-approved nonprofit charitable program that provides only one service: strictly private psychotherapy that our clients participate in voluntarily. We don't speak to nor communicate with anyone else about our clients -- so that they are in complete control of all other relationships and decisions in their lives.
Is a sliding scale available?: No
Service Rates: VIP's program allows clients to earn their therapy in exchange for volunteer work they provide, privately and indepdendently, for the charity, nonprofit or government agency of their choice. There is an option to pay a partial fee and do less volunteer work (at the clien'ts prerogative) -- but more than 95% of VIP sessions have been earned strictly through volunteer work. We specifically designed a program with no third party payers (managed care or insurance) so that our clients would not be denied access to therapy, and so that no one else could demand reports or psychiatric labels regarding our clients. VIP's system is as private as Connecticut law allows.
