Outpatient behavioral health clinics

We offer outpatient services to give you access to behavioral health programs designed to help people with busy lives and schedules. These allow you to maintain your routines, in general, while getting the care you need on a more flexible timeline.

You might use outpatient services if you are transitioning in to or out of an inpatient program. You might also participate in an outpatient mental health program if you and your doctor determine this level of care will be most useful to you for another reason.

Inpatient behavioral health programs

We are proud to offer facilities and partnerships that allow you to receive inpatient mental health care. In these types of programs, you will be admitted to the hospital or health center during treatment. In other words, you will live there during the day and at night for as long as you are in the program.

Inpatient care can be really useful to help you focus on your treatment without distractions as you are immersed in a caring and therapeutic environment.

Specialty behavioral health treatments we offer

We want to be sure you have access to anything and everything you need to completely heal and lead a stronger, healthier life. As part of that, we provide specialized treatments that include:

Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT)

ECT (formerly known as electroshock therapy) is a completely safe and highly effective treatment for many people. We offer this as a hospital-based service, and provide both inpatient and outpatient options.

You are under anesthesia throughout the process as small electrodes stimulate seizure-like activity in your brain. This creates a positive change, especially in people with depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorders and movement disorders.

If we think you may benefit from ECT, we approach it the same way we would any treatment: explaining everything and answering all of your questions along the way.

Esketamine nasal spray for treatment-resistant depression

There are a lot of options out there for people with depression, but not everyone can find something that helps among those common offerings. That's why we provide access to esketamine nasal spray. This can allow you to experience relief and improvement in as little as 24 hours.

If you have tried other forms of treatment without results, we encourage you to ask about this highly effective option.
