What We Treat

As an intensive outpatient treatment facility, we treat a broad range of mental health disorders and substance use disorders. We also address co-occurring disorders and affiliated issues, such as trauma and eating disorders. Starting with a personalized assessment, we identify and diagnose all disorders that may be affecting a client’s mental health, and we create an individualized plan that addresses each issue. Every program focuses on giving clients the tools to confidently manage life outside treatment, complete with comprehensive aftercare and alumni support.

What Are Co-Occurring Disorders?

Mental health issues that occur simultaneously with substance use disorders are called co-occurring disorders. About half of people who struggle with mental health disorders will also struggle with substance use and vice-versa. Co-occurring disorders can also refer to having multiple mental health issues, such as anxiety alongside disordered eating, or struggling with multiple substances. We understand that few people experience a single, neatly identified disorder. Our treatment approach accounts for this, and we have made co-occurring disorders a cornerstone of what we treat.


An accredited mental health treatment facility, Essential Behavioral Health is also certified to treat co-occurring mental health disorders and substance use disorders. Our staff has deep experience addressing both addiction and mental health, and we see the treatment of co-occurring disorders as part of our mission to help clients reclaim their whole physical and mental health.

At Essential Behavioral Health, our treatment is rooted in the philosophy that recovery is a lifelong journey. We have built each program to address practical life challenges, while giving our clients ongoing support and encouragement long after leaving our care.

Our intake process starts with a personalized assessment that allows us to get to know you so we can develop a unique plan based on your medical history, personality and goals. Our continuing care and alumni services ensure that you are never alone on your journey.

What is a typical week in treatment like?

A typical week in outpatient treatment includes 6 hours of counseling, 6 days a week. We start every treatment program with an individualized assessment to determine the most effective course of action for each client.

Your program will be specifically tailored to your needs and will consider your personal health history, goals, and any co-occurring disorders that may affect your treatment.

How long is the program?

Our outpatient stimulant treatment programs typically last between 30 and 90 days. However, we tailor every program to your needs and goals.

Can I leave my sober living home on days that I’m not in treatment?

Your recovery residence rules depend on your program. Many outpatient clients maintain jobs while in treatment.

How many other people will be at my residence?

In order to provide individualized care and staff attention, we accept no more than 12 clients at our women’s house and 21 clients in our men’s house.

If I’m in treatment for a mental health disorder, do I need to stay in a recovery residence?

House is available, however local clients may choose to reside at home.
