Outpatient Mental Health programs serve adults who are experiencing emotional, behavioral or learning problems that significantly interfere with their lives. Treatment includes individual, family, couple and group therapy, as well as medication monitoring.

Adult Inpatient Services are offered for those 18 years of age or older who require 24-hour supervision due to an acute psychiatric and/or emotional disorder. Medication supervision, diet monitoring and nursing care are provided under the direction of the patient’s psychiatrist, physician or advanced nurse practitioner. Treatment includes a variety of group therapies, including psychotherapy, recreational therapy, exercise and relaxation groups, education groups (communication, anger management, lifestyle, etc.) and arts and crafts groups.
