Behavioral Health Services
Over the course of our lives we all experience problems or difficulties. Even with the help of friends and family we may find that we are unable to resolve them. Some of these problems might include chronic or acute medical problems, changes or conflict with family or friends, marital conflict, divorce, or widowhood, job status changes, retirement, loss of friends, family or social support, or changes in mood, sleep, appetite, digestion or energy levels. Members of our team are highly trained mental health professionals who have broad experience in the treatment of cognitive, emotional and behavioral disorders. The team includes psychiatrists, social workers, nurses, therapists, occupational therapists and technicians.
Counseling is an opportunity to seek solutions, learn coping skills, and promote behavior change in order to manage or resolve problems. Regular counseling sessions are available for patients age 16 and over. Frequency and type of counseling is tailored to best meet the needs of the individual. No referral needed.
Intensive Outpatient Program
Outpatient services offer the advantages of intensive treatment while allowing the individual to return home at night. This program provides more in-depth treatment for patients with more persistent psychiatric symptoms. The program is ideal for patients with a history of relapse or those "stepping down" from a hospital stay for treatment of disorders. The Intensive Outpatient Program is designed to achieve short-term stabilization with a long-term goal of managing the disorder. Treatment plan may include individual therapy sessions as well as group sessions. Families are encouraged to participate in the plan of care.
