Short-term specialized treatment is provided by a multidisciplinary team. They use a problem-oriented approach tailored to the needs of the individual. Our team consists of a psychiatrist, a physician assistant, psychiatric nurses, psychiatric social workers and master's prepared specialists, occupational and recreational therapists and unit counselors.
We offer individual, group, and family therapy. There is a full range of biological treatments available, including pharmacotherapy and electroconvulsive therapy.
