According to the National Council for Behavioral Health, one in five Americans has a mental illness and many are reluctant to seek help or might not know where to turn for help. The symptoms of mental illness can also be difficult to detect. Even when friends and family of someone who appears to be developing mental illness can tell that something is amiss, they may not know how to intervene or direct the person to proper treatment – which means that all too often, those in need of mental health services do not get help until it is too late.

Mental Illnes

Our programs promise brighter futures to people with persistent serious mental illness, such as schizophrenia and clinical depression as well as less serious, non-chronic psychiatric issues treated in outpatient settings.

Substance Abuse

Our skilled and compassionate professionals help people emerge from alcoholism, drug addiction, chemical dependency and abuse of prescription drugs.
