Intensive Outpatient Programs are available also! Psychiatric services, including evaluations and medication management, are also provided. Our services are LGBTQIA-responsive.
    • Walk-In Access to Behavioral Health Services

      We believe we can best support our patients when we meet face to face. We also think it’s important to have a space outside of your home to safely engage in therapy. Our health centers are safe, follow the best guidance for social distancing and mask-wearing, and we want to return to face to face services as the standard.

      Walk-in care is available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Walk-in appointments are based on staffing availability at the time. Everyone walking in will be asked to screen for COVID-19.
