The opioid treatment program is a 24-bed residential program for adults who require medical detox services. Along with addressing the physical aspects of opioid dependency through medication-assisted treatment (MAT), the hospital holds process groups to address goal-setting, addiction education, living in recovery, relapse prevention, and nutrition.

The residential child and adolescent units provide comprehensive psychiatric services for children with severe behavioral issues, or youth who may have experienced some kind of disruption in early childhood attachment. Treatment may include counseling, play therapy, therapeutic recreation, and medication management.

In addition to residential treatment, clients can access a wide range of outpatient services, such as individual and family counseling, medication management, and assessment and evaluation.
