Inpatient Mental Health Treatment

Adults who are in danger of harming themselves and/or others or are experiencing a mental health crisis will be admitted to our inpatient unit, where we provide crisis stabilization and continuous monitoring.

Outpatient Counseling and Medication Clinic

Our outpatient programs provide treatment to adults not requiring an inpatient level of care, or individuals who have been discharged from inpatient treatment and return home. Outpatient treatment plans are individually tailored to each patient.

Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT)

Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is a safe, effective, painless treatment for a number of psychiatric conditions which may not respond to other methods of treatment.  In use for more than 70 years, ECT involves the use of brief, controlled electrical currents to produce a reaction within the brain, which is necessary for the therapeutic effects. ECT is primarily used for treatment of major depression but may also be used to treat mania, schizophrenia and catatonia. Although there have been many advances in the treatment of mental disorders in recent years, ECT remains the most effective, fastest, and safest treatment for many cases.
