Our mental health professionals help patients to regain emotional health and well-being.  When a patient is admitted into the program, a supportive and experienced team of specialists will work with that patient to develop an individualized treatment plan.  This personalized plan will address the patient's immediate needs and establish goals for ongoing treatment.  The treatment process includes individual, group and family therapies, along with various expressive and relaxation therapy programs. 

Admissions are accepted 24 hours a day by calling 773-975-6735.
