Evaluation, assessment, and referral services
Our highly trained staff of physicians, masters-level therapist, registered nurses and other allied professionals completes a prompt and thorough evaluation to identify the presence and severity of a behavioral health problem. The team determines the most appropriate level of care and connects the individual and/or family with the necessary resources. A treatment plan with specific goals and time frame is then developed to meet the unique needs of the patient.
Inpatient hospital services
This program is designed for those with a mental health crisis or chemical detox from addiction who require 24-hour nursing care and a safe, secure, and supportive environment. Once a patient is stabilized an interdisciplinary treatment team assesses the individual and designs a treatment plan to prepare the patient for outpatient services. This plan follows the individual through the whole continuum of care.
