Outpatient Services’ philosophy is supported by societies’ need to enable individuals and families who have encountered barriers which have impeded their ability to function due to a mental health, substance abuse or behavioral crisis. Our goal is for each client to successfully complete our program, which is developed to enrich, encourage, and inspire each client to learn coping skills necessary to adapt and grow in situations that are very anxiety provoking and stressful. There have been an increasing number of people with chemical dependent behavioral and psychological impairment and these individuals have been underserved.

It is our vested interest to make sure that our program functions in a safe and nurturing environment to promote our clients to grow and benefit from these troubling situations.

Our outpatient services are designed to meet the growing need for mental services in troubled communities for individuals and families.
