Behavioral Health Services at Providence Provides Therapeutic Care for the Mind, Body and Spirit

We all experience mood swings from time to time, but sometimes challenging life circumstances result in a decrease in emotional or behavioral functioning and feelings of helplessness or hopelessness can follow. Unresolved, these feelings can lead to debilitating mental health conditions or chemical dependency. 

Providence’s Behavioral Health Services provides compassionate care that supports healing of the mind, body, and spirit for patients needing psychiatric or mental health and addiction treatment services.

Our treatment is based on the belief that all human beings have a desire to live a full life and have the ability to grow and change. Behavioral Health Services at Providence provide an environment that encourages growth and change, while maintaining each patient’s self-esteem, dignity, and right to privacy.  Services are designed to help support you and your family through challenging times and serious conditions.
