Adult Outpatient Services

North Suffolk’s Chelsea and Boston counseling centers provide adult outpatient services including individual, group and family therapy as well as psychiatric and medication services and crisis services. These are scheduled and walk-in outpatient services for mental health issues that may be temporary or chronic.

We serve adults with emotional difficulties, family problems, psychiatric illness, struggles with addiction and other challenges to daily living. Services are varied across our four locations and are offered in English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Khmer (Cambodian) and American Sign Language (ASL).

Urgent Care Walk-In Services

NSCS is now offering Urgent Care access to mental health and addiction outpatient services for adults and children, in English and Spanish, at our East Boston Counseling Center at 14 Porter St. Urgent Care is a walk-in screening to complete paperwork and discuss available services with a triage clinician. It takes approximately 30 minutes. Clients may or may not have an intake assessment the same day. (With same-day intake, it can be up to 3 hours total.)
