All Treatment Programs

We specialize in trauma recovery, depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and other mental health-related conditions.

Anxiety Treatment

While anxiety is part of everyday life, it should not be a controlling force. Experiencing feelings of fear, unease and worry – episodic or ongoing – can be crippling. Our inpatient mental health facility offers specialized care to help you break the cycle to regain power over your life.

Depression Treatment

Depression can impact women of all ages, race and socioeconomic status. Our depression treatment center empowers women with their emotional, physical and mental wellness journey with an array of support services.

PTSD Treatment

PTSD is a disorder in which a person has difficulty recovering after experiencing or witnessing a terrifying event.

The condition may last months or years, with triggers that can bring back memories of the trauma accompanied by intense emotional and physical reactions.

Symptoms may include nightmares or unwanted memories of the trauma, avoidance of situations that bring back memories of the trauma, heightened reactions, anxiety, or depressed mood.

Treatment includes different types of trauma-focused psychotherapy as well as medications to manage symptoms.

Trauma Treatment

Trauma therapy is a form of therapy that can help you deal with the emotional response caused by a traumatic event.

Over 50% of people experience at least one trauma in their lives. Trauma can include a wide range of situations, ranging from serious injury, loss, physical health, sexual violence, and life-threatening events such as hurricanes, to chronic abuse and neglect, being bullied, and homelessness.
