We provide a full range of psychiatric and behavioral health services, available 24 hours a day:

  • Crisis intervention and evaluation

Because health is affected by a variety of physical, mental and social factors, our services focus on both mind and body.

We provide care in a safe, private environment, relying on a team of professionals that include a psychiatrist and other physicians, RNs, LPNs, psychiatric technicians and licensed therapists and counselors.

Crisis Assessment Team/Emergency Evaluation

When patients arrive in our emergency room with psychiatric or substance abuse issues, a specially trained crisis Assessment Clinician can assess them and refer them to the right care.
