The primary goal of our PHP is to optimize outcomes through individualized treatment in a caring and therapeutic environment. We offer individual, family and group counseling to help improve a patient's level of functioning, reduce symptoms and prevent relapse or hospitalization.

Each patient participates in a formal, comprehensive clinical evaluation completed by our team of clinicians, which consists of psychiatrists, social workers and registered nurses.

Individualized treatment plans incorporate the results of the multidisciplinary evaluations to include the patient's strengths, limitations and goals for treatment.

Medicaid and most major insurances are accepted.

Adult intensive outpatient program (IOP)

Our adult evening IOP is designed to treat and improve the lives of adults experiencing both psychiatric disorders and addictions.

IOP allows the individual to continue daily routines, such as work or school, and participate in treatment at the end of the day. Frequent sessions can help maintain abstinence, improve mental health and enhance quality of life.

Recent studies by the National Institute for Mental Health conclude that diagnosing and treating emotional and mental health problems more than doubles the success rate for people with alcohol and/or drug dependence.

Our IOP provides a co-occurring comprehensive treatment program, including specialized evaluations, to meet the needs of each individual.

We accept most insurances, including Medicaid.
