GET HELP

We are resuming in-person programming for partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient treatments. In-person connection is incredibly important to behavioral health treatment and we are eager to provide this support to our patients as they move forward on the road to recovery. We also know that the safety and health of our patients and staff is top priority. See our latest update on steps we are taking to ensure everyone at our facilities are following guidelines as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).


Our day treatment program provides care for partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient levels of care. Treatment is customized and employs a variety of evidence-based modalities, including cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, and more. Here, clients benefit from one-on-one therapeutic support as well as group sessions in a supportive environment of peers where they can safely practice new skills that are transferable to home.

Insurances we accept at this location include but are not limited to Anthem Blue Cross, Cigna, Beacon, Unicare, and Kaiser. Please remember that the insurances we accept change frequently. Our insurance team will verify your coverage.
