  • Issues of grief and loss, marriage and relationships, family-of-origin, self-esteem, codependency
  • Management of depression, anxiety or anger
  • Management of medication
  • Relaxation techniques
  • Communication and coping skills
  • Problem solving

The program offers a safe, structured and supportive environment, with:

  • Goals designed for each individual
  • Confidentiality carefully guarded
  • Licensed, experienced and competent therapists, nurses and psychiatrists
  • A daily schedule that includes psychotherapeutic group sessions, psychoeducational sessions, and individual or family therapy, as needed.
