McLean Anxiety Mastery Program


The McLean Anxiety Mastery Program is a group-based treatment program for children and adolescents ages 7-19 with anxiety disorders and obsessive compulsive disorder. Our program is ideal for young people with social anxiety, specific phobias, panic attacks, separation anxiety, and obsessions and compulsions who are appropriate for outpatient care.

For further information about our program or to make a referral, please contact:


We review potential patients to determine whether the program is a good fit for the individual. Parents or caregivers should fill out and submit the McLean Anxiety Mastery Program Application. Once the form is received, we will be in touch to continue the screening process. If you need assistance with the form, please contact the program at the email address above.


The program is primarily self-pay, however some components may be covered by insurance. The cost for the portion of the program that insurance will not cover is $5,300 for four weeks, plus a one-time treatment planning session fee of $200. Additional fees apply for specialty services including the anxiety-related school avoidance track and applicable home-based sessions. Other additional costs depend on insurance coverage.
