MADISON — Center for Evaluation and Counseling, Inc. (CEC) began in 1994 as a humble four-person nonprofit with the hopes of making a difference in the world of child abuse and neglect. Now with offices in Parsippany and Sparta, CEC has just celebrated its 25th anniversary. CEC currently has approximately 35 full time, part time, and per diem employees, and interns from various universities throughout the state and New York where students have come to train.
CEC remains a strong leader in the field of child abuse and neglect. CEC has continued to carry out its mission of providing quality forensic mental health services as well as outpatient mental health services.
Through these programs CEC provides evidenced based and trauma informed treatments to a wide range of consumers. In addition to the child abuse program, CEC has been recognized for its work with at risk juveniles in the county for several years. The Comprehensive Adolescent Program offers adolescents an opportunity to come to program up to five times a week for group and check in sessions where diversion and prevention are key components. The success of this program has been further demonstrated by the parents of the adolescents asking for and participating in the Parents Helping Parents, parenting group at CEC, which is offered on a weekly basis to assist with and provide support and guidance with parenting challenges for all ages. At our new location CEC will be expanding our outpatient mental health services and will be providing individual, group, marital, and family therapy to address various mental health issues. We will be accepting insurance or self-pay.
