Our caring Admissions & Emergency Services Specialists can help guide you or your loved one to the care you need.


Both therapists and psychiatrists play an important role in providing quality care. The therapist's primary role is counseling while psychiatrists are medical doctors who focus on diagnostics and can prescribe necessary medications. Although there are some differences, the goal of the therapist and psychiatrist is the same — to improve the quality of life for each and every person.

Individual and Group Therapy

Group therapy also is available, offering a unique therapeutic setting with supportive peers. Group availability may depend on community demand, time of year, and space limitations.
