PROGRAMS > BEHAVIORAL HEALTH & RECOVERY

​COMPREHENSIVE TREATMENT IN A COMPASSIONATE SETTING

BEHAVIORAL HEALTH CENTER STAFF 

 

Our highly trained staff of licensed clinicians, counselors, case managers, and peer partners is supervised by a licensed therapist; and are available around the clock to help patients. But more important than our vast experience is our capacity to compassionately care for you and your family.

ADULT BEHAVIORAL HEALTH PROGRAMS 

 

This program focuses on crisis management and prevention for people with bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, suicidal tendencies, or other emotional, psychological, or behavioral problems.  Clients learn to recognize stressors and develop healthy coping mechanisms.

 

After leaving the program, patients are encouraged to check in periodically with us, or return as needed to stabilize a crisis situation. At the time of discharge, we refer our patients to our hospital-based outpatient programs or to individual community practitioners for continued treatment.

ADOLESCENT BEHAVIORAL HEALTH PROGRAMS 

 

Through comprehensive treatment in a compassionate setting, we offer several behavioral health programs for teens with multiple levels of care. The goal of all our programs is to help teens identify and resolve the issues that are keeping them from thriving, being happy, and being able to function within their families and within the community.

 

Our highly trained behavioral health professionals evaluate, diagnose and treat teens for a wide variety of conditions, including but not limited to:

 

    Depression and bipolar disorder

    Mood swings and anger

SENIOR BEHAVIORAL HEALTH PROGRAMS 

 

Our Senior Behavioral Health Program is designed to treat and care for people 65 and older with mild, moderate or severe mental health concerns.

 

These mental health issues may be related to aging, chronic health problems, loss of loved ones or other stressful life events, or they may be conditions that have gone unaddressed for decades.  Whatever the origin, our programs are tailored to help improve day-to-day functioning and enjoy a higher quality of life and improved health.

 

We understand the aging process, recognizes its challenges and celebrate its joys.  We will work collaboratively with your primary care physician and medical specialists to help you maintain your independence and thrive.

 

Our Licensed Clinicians have advanced specialty training in behavioral healthcare for older adults and in coordinating each person's care with their other care providers.  We offer a range of services and programs to help diagnose, maintain, treat or restore psychological health.

 

Signs that May Indicate the Need for Help 

 

Psychological issues often go unrecognized and undiagnosed among older adults who often become tolerant of pain and loss of function. In many situations, we can improve quality of life, well-being and happiness. Some signs that a person could benefit from a medical evaluation and potential treatment include:

 

    Depression

    Social withdrawal

    Severe anxiety

    Suicidal thoughts

    Sleep and appetite changes 

Loss of interest in appearance

Hallucinations

Confusion

Severe memory loss

Changes in behavior or personality
