The Fresno facility is gender-inclusive for adolescents 11 to 17 years old. In this private home-style setting we limit service to six patients at a time, ensuring that everyone receives individualized and personal care. We treat a variety of mental health disorders including depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder and co-occurring disorders.
We are located in a quiet residential neighborhood off FWY 41 and within walking distance of Fresno’s scenic Woodward Park.
The School Support Program is offered to young patients, where an education liaison supervises and supports them through their schoolwork. The education liaison also collaborates with the patient’s therapist to ensure they have the right environment in place for learning, which will in turn help them reintegrate into their school after treatment.
Insurances we accept at this location include but are not limited to Kaiser, Humana, Cigna, and Unicare. Please remember that the insurances we accept change frequently. Our insurance team will verify your coverage.
