We offer both inpatient and outpatient behavioral health services. Our staff includes psychiatrists, a psychiatric nurse practitioner, licensed counselors, licensed clinical social workers, nurses, activity therapists and other support personnel. We have a 16-bed inpatient unit for adult patients. We deliver compassionate care through individual and group-focused activities. As a result, patients learn more effective tools for living.

We also have a seven-bed Geropsychiatric Unit. It is one of only a few available in this area. The unit helps older adults learn to cope with changes they may be encountering. Those changes can include anxiety, depression, dementia and paranoia. The program is short-term and emphasizes dignity and respect for each individual.

Patients may be referred by primary care physician, human service agencies and other mental health providers, or may self-refer.

We also offer outpatient behavioral health services, which includes Addiction and Recovery Treatment. Outpatient services also include psychiatric and neuropsychiatric services specific for the geriatric population.
