Behavioral Health

We embrace hope and avoid the language of illness

How we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices at every stage of life are impacted by our mental and emotional health. Our goal is to create an empowering environment so individuals can set their path to recovery, accomplish their goals, and reconnect with their family, friends and community.

At our centers, we embrace hope and avoid the language of illness. We work with individuals to develop strategies for coping, personal growth and continuing wellness. Through a blend of compassion and understanding, we focus on individual strengths, and strive to help each person achieve desired results.

We offer a comprehensive continuum of inpatient, outpatient and community-based services for children, adolescents, adults and families. Our services have been recognized by Mental Health America via its Innovations Award program..
