Compassionate psychiatric care in a supportive environment

You are not alone. Mental illness is not a weakness or character flaw. It can impact anyone. No matter your condition, we start every treatment process with the same approach: compassionate care. We understand psychiatric disorders affect more than a patient’s brain—they impact the well-being of the patient as a whole, their families and their loved ones.

We have a dedicated team committed to your mental health and well-being that includes:

  • Doctors
  • Nurses
  • Mental health technicians
  • Case managers
  • Therapists
  • Social workers

They all work together to develop an individual treatment plan for you or your loved one.

Conditions That We Treat

Certified by the Alabama Department of Mental Health, our program offers in-depth evaluation and treatment for a broad range of psychiatric disorders including:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Schizophrenia

Our program consists of adult and geriatric inpatient units. The co-ed adult unit serves individuals age 19 and older who are experiencing mental or emotional changes that may require voluntary or involuntary treatment. Our geriatric unit serves seniors age 60 and older who are experiencing mental or emotional changes that may require voluntary or involuntary treatment.
