Behavioral Health

Our Process


At Northwest Behavioral Health, each patient receives a thorough assessment to determine possible causes of behavioral and mental changes. Once the assessments are completed, the treatment team then works with the patient, family, and possibly other health professionals to develop a treatment plan. Treatment includes individual meetings with psychiatrists, individual, group, and possibly family therapy.
