Our behavioral health services

Our treatment plans focus on helping you recover from traumatic life events, so you can look to the future without being burdened from the past.

Mental health treatments we offer

Our highly trained staff develops a recovery plan for you that is based on a mental, physical and social evaluation conducted soon after admission. Our recovery plans may include:

  • A cognitive behavioral approach, identifying the triggers that can bring on a relapse and helping you find alternatives to those triggers
  • Active psychiatric treatment with 24-hour access to a psychiatrist
  • Activity therapy to get patients involved in social and skill-building activities, helping patients who have a hard time getting out of their room to socialize and feel like part of a community
  • Collaboration with community providers during the course of treatment to ensure a smooth transition back into the community and to the next appropriate level of care
  • Involvement of family and loved ones, who are encouraged to serve as active members of the treatment team to foster positive outcomes for the individual
  • Medication administration, education, management and monitoring, if clinically needed
  • Ongoing contact with personal caretakers, medical staff and the facility of residence (where appropriate and for purposes of aftercare planning)
