It is our goal to understand the person within the context of their environment, and base the treatment needs of each person we serve within this context. Our clinicians have a vast knowledge base of treatment modalities across a diverse theoretical base incorporating biological, psychological, and social dimensions. This enables us to provide highly specialized and integrative support you would likely not receive in other outpatient treatment settings.

Our electric style of treatment lends itself to a highly personalized treatment plan incorporating essential elements for a successful experience.
