Some Frequently Asked Questions

Do you accept my insurance?
Syntero accepts a number of payer sources including private insurance, Medicaid, Medicare, self-pay, and a sliding fee scale for uninsured Franklin County residents. Syntero will make every effort to verify your benefits and match you with the appropriate provider. It is your responsibility to make sure the provider you see is in-network with your insurance. Please check with your insurance company regarding coverage, co-pays, and deductibles on services sought prior to your first appointment. Private insurance providers may be limited.
What services do you offer?
Syntero provides outpatient mental health as well as alcohol and substance abuse disorder and prevention services to clients of all ages. Additionally, Syntero provides psychiatric services, integrated health care, individual and family counseling, prevention services for children, teens, and young adults, assistance for seniors, crisis response services, support and therapy groups, trauma treatment, and community support services. Please see our Programs Section for a detailed description of services provided.
Do you have counseling for young children?
Syntero does offer counseling services for young children at both locations with several qualified clinicians trained and proficient with this age group.
Do you have a psychiatrist taking new clients?
Syntero has very limited psychiatry services that are available only for current clients engaged in counseling or case management services with Syntero. Syntero does not accept referrals for psychiatry services only. We believe that therapy combined with psychiatry and medication management is more effective.
Can I get a Domestic Violence Assessment?
Syntero does not offer this service. Potential sources of help in the area might be The Center for Safety and Healing at Nationwide Children’s, Crossroads Recovery, or The Ohio Domestic Violence Network.
