An accurate diagnosis is the essential first step in the recovery process. All clients begin with a comprehensive psychiatric assessment. A correct diagnosis helps us match our clients with an appropriate recovery plan, a specialized team of professionals and the most effective medications. In addition to optimizing the use of pharmacologic therapies, our holistic recovery program gives our clients the opportunity to learn about their illness and practice skills and strategies to cope with emotions, mood episodes, and unhealthy thought patterns.
