Practice Info
In Times of Challenge or Difficulty...

Our Behavioral Health Services include a full range of mental health and substance abuse treatment programs for all ages. Common to all of our programs is a dedicated, multidisciplinary team approach to developing an individualized plan of care for each patient. However brief a patient’s stay, we have a life-changing opportunity to build trust, intimacy and a healing relationship. The focus of our treatment is to draw out people’s strengths and competencies to assist them with coping more effectively in times of significant challenge or difficulty in their lives.

Our Philosophy
Honor every person’s intrinsic worth, dignity and self-healing potential
Provide care that encompasses the whole person’s psychosocial, medical, cultural, educational and spiritual needs
Empower every person to recognize his or her strengths and achieve maximum potential
Foster therapeutic relationships and healing based upon trust, empathy and unconditional positive regard
Instill hope and a vision for the future
The goal is always to help people see a brighter future and find their way to a more meaningful life.

Outpatient Treatment

We offer outpatient treatment for a wide range of mental health and substance abuse issues through Saint Francis Behavioral Health Group, a Saint Francis Care Provider. Individual, group and family therapies, as well as medication evaluation and management, are conducted by a licensed professional staff. Services are offered at several locations throughout the region. Clinical support is available 24 hours a day.

Getting Help
Professional or self-referral can be made by calling the Behavioral Health Access Center toll free at 800-688-4859 or 860-714-2750. Our services begin with a prompt, confidential telephone screening. Decisions regarding the appropriate recommendation for care are made in collaboration with the patient, the family or guardian, the physician and any other care providers. Patients will be scheduled for a comprehensive face-to-face clinical evaluation through our Assessment Services.

Everyday Behavioral Health Services at Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center instill hope and enrich the lives of people with social, emotional, development or behavioral issues. We are committed to clinical excellence, world-class service and the nurturing care that improves the quality of daily living. Whether the need is for mental health or substance abuse treatment, we treat all with compassion.
