Outpatient Services

Outpatient services provide comprehensive treatment for patients experiencing problems with psychiatric and addiction disorders through day or evening programs, allowing them to return home each day. Outpatient programming is offered as a step down from inpatient care or as a step up into treatment and is adjusted to meet the needs of patients through group and family sessions. Each patient will have an individualized treatment plan to meet his or her needs and goals.
