Treatment Tools

Based on your needs and preferences, your Mental Health or Dual Diagnosis treatment team will utilize a variety of treatment tools, including:



  • Medications: Medications will be used to stabilize your condition in the hospital and upon your return home. 
  • Education Classes: Education Classes will focus on the effective use of medications, nutrition, health problems, addictions, daily life problems, and personal growth. 
  • Individual Therapy: Individualized psychotherapy sessions focus on resolution of personal and interpersonal problems that are related to your mental health or substance abuse challenges.
  • Group Therapy: Group psychotherapy focuses on the development of coping skills that will support your recovery both short- and long-term.
  • Therapeutic Activities: Therapeutic activities focus on establishing independent life skills and identifying creative outlets. We recognize your mental and physical health impact each other and are equally important to your recovery. Primary care specialists will evaluate your needs and work closely with your treatment team to support your physical health.

As a freestanding psychiatric and substance abuse facility, we do not perform surgeries, conduct electroconvulsive therapy, or provide emergency medical care. We require medically complex patients to be cleared prior to admission to ensure we have the appropriate care capacity.
