About Our Services

Using our nationally-recognized Recovery Needs Levels Instrument, we match the persons we serve with the treatment that best meets their needs.

Psychiatric Services

Some people may only need quarterly visits with their psychiatrist to review and renew their medications.

Outpatient  Services

Others, are seen as outpatients and regularly attend group and/or individual therapy sessions in addition to psychiatric treatment.

Enhanced Outpatient

Some receive therapy services but still benefit from assistance with housing, employment or other services in the community.

Intensive Case Management

Our community treatment teams assist those who’ve just begun their road to recovery and wellness, and still need assistance with housing and access to community resources.

High Intensity Treatment

Our highest level of service is for those who have recently been homeless, hospitalized, or may have criminal justice system involvement and or substance use issues.

Trauma Informed Services

Building on the key elements of trauma informed service delivery: trustworthiness, safety, choice, collaboration and empowerment, we provide services that are welcoming and create an environment of healing.

In treatment we use the Trauma Recovery and Empowerment Model (TREM), which is a group-based program designed to promote recovery from trauma.
