CONDITIONS WE TREAT
Let us simplify what may otherwise seem complicated.
We realize you and your loved ones are more than a label. Using common diagnostic terms can aid understanding and help guide treatment solutions.

What We Don’t Treat
We are not an emergency clinic. We are an outpatient provider so we do not have inpatient facilities. We are not a hospital and do not provide detox services for addictions. We do not treat schizophrenia or brain disorders related to advancing age such as dementia or Alzheimer’s. We are not contracted with any court system and do not provide court ordered services related to child custody or other matters.
