How to Access Services at Starting Point
At Starting Point we believe services should be available and accessible when you need them. All new patients can enter services through our Open Access center located in Yulee, Monday – Friday beginning at 7:45 a.m. No appointment is needed, just come in when you are ready. Follow-up appointments are scheduled during both day and evening hours.
You will meet with a Registration Clerk for your financial intake and then meet with our clinician for your initial appointment. An assessment with a counselor will be done and you will work with your counselor to develop your treatment plan.
NEW PRE-REGISTRATION HOURS AVAILABLE EACH MONDAY – FRIDAY FROM 1:00 – 4:00 PM.
Starting Point Behavioral Healthcare is pleased to announce the implementation of their new electronic health record and the availability of Pre-Registration hours for our new patients each Monday – Friday, from 1:00- 4:00 pm.
With our new electronic health record we are able to offer Pre-Registration hours to expedite the Open Access process for our new patients. Patients now have the opportunity to call our Yulee office each afternoon to complete their registration process prior to an Open Access visit; pre-registered patients that arrive by 8:00 a.m. for an Open Access visit will receive priority placement. Simply call our Yulee office at 904-225-8280 and ask to speak with a Registration Clerk so we can complete your registration paperwork. As a reminder, you will still need to bring a valid ID, proof of residency and income, and your insurance card at the time of your visit.
