The Armstrong Center for Hope is your refuge for peace and transformation. Hope is a powerful life force, because it is our confident expectation that what we deeply desire will be ultimately fulfilled. Regardless of our life experiences, there are times in the human journey marked by significant pain and struggle. In those times, we can lose sight of the very purpose for which we were created. In the midst of challenging, even overwhelming circumstances, however, hope will sustain us. We invite you to choose hope rather than despair. Learn more about our services.

COUNSELING & PSYCHOTHERAPY
Social Skills Group
Parenting Skills Group
Psychological testing provides an opportunity for individuals, parents, primary care providers, pediatricians, teachers, administrators, attorneys, and the like to better understand the intellectual, academic, attentional, socio-emotional, autism-related, and/or personality functioning of the referred client. A comprehensive battery of psychological testing usually takes three to four hours to complete. Results can provide significant diagnostic clarification and guidance for treatment interventions.
At the ACFH, psychological testing is usually completed in three parts. During the first appointment, a detailed intake interview is conducted with the person being tested, or with a parent/guardian if the person being tested is a minor. Rating scales for parents and/or teachers are usually disseminated and are to be returned no later than the next appointment. At the second appointment, the full testing battery is typically administered. During the final appointment, usually scheduled two to three weeks following the date of testing, an interpretive session provides an opportunity to review the detailed report, ask questions, and to explore recommendations.

NO SURPRISES ACT NOTICE
“Right to Receive a Good Faith Estimate of Expected Charges” Under the No Surprises Act
Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
- You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
- Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least one business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
- If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
- Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call Ashley Hood, Practice Manager, at 919-418-1718, ext. 215.
