Outpatient Therapy Services
Services are available to assist persons with developing and maintaining coping skills that facilitate the adjustment and integration within their living environment and community. Recipients are empowered to make decisions about their care with the expected outcome of an increased quality of life. The overall goal is to maximize strengths, reduce behavior problems or functional deficits stemming from the existence of a mental health disorder that interferes with the recipient’s personal, familial, educational, vocational, or community adjustment.

The individual is provided with the ability to explore and gain insight into their actions and behaviors within a therapeutic environment.
