Getting Treatment

Program Costs

Every patient is different, which is why we customize treatment to address the biopsychosocial needs of each patient. And because patients’ needs differ, time in treatment varies for each.
Most patients stay three to eight weeks, depending on the program, in order to complete the program’s comprehensive assessment, develop and implement the treatment plan and make the desired progress toward treatment goals.

All-Inclusive Rates

Daily inpatient rates include:
  • Room and board
  • Diagnostic assessments and treatment planning
  • Program groups and activities
  • Specialty groups
  • Evidence-based and psychodynamic therapies, including cognitive-behavior therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) skills training
  • Medication

  • Planning for follow-up care and support after discharge
