We are proud advocates and promoters of a trauma-informed treatment philosophy that is at the center of all our mental health programming efforts in order to best serve those that have experienced the cycles of abuse, neglect and continued system-involvement.
Our team has a high degree of training and experience and operates 24 hours a day / 7 days a week providing intensive mental health treatment interventions; around the clock residential care; comprehensive community-based family counseling services; and other support services for the clients in our care. In addition, we also have a continuum of care program model for clients that are in need of a more holistic treatment approach that addresses unaddressed childhood trauma in a culturally sensitive and gender-responsive environment.
