  • Patients who have been treated by traditional methods but remain symptomatic
  • Patients who are motivated and want to work toward improvement in their behavioral health recovery, return to work, school, etc.

Program Goals

  • Provide the highest quality of care for every patient
  • Treat mood disorders with a combination of psychotherapy and medications
  • Stabilize acute episodes
  • Educate patients and their families about the signs and symptoms of their behavioral health issues
  • Empower patients with knowledge to help decrease the chance of relapse in the future
