Why PBHG

We believe in comprehensive care. We know that individuals, families, and communities as a whole are more than just their symptoms or their challenges – they have goals, dreams, and more; and we provide healthcare that respects the whole person, the whole family, and the whole community.


We do not split up our service providers or force our clients to endlessly search for helpful specialists – we provide a complete healthcare experience that is focused on our clients’ success and health.

We offer a wide range of programs and services, and some of our most requested include:

  • Individual, family, and group therapy and crisis counseling.
  • Substance abuse, addiction, and mental health counseling.
  • Job readiness training.
  • Transitional residential and independent living facilities.
  • Treatment for those suffering from substance abuse or addiction.
  • Programs specifically designed to meet the needs of senior citizens.

We believe that guidance and education are a very important part of healthcare. Our programs and services aim to teach, improve, enhance, and maintain mental health and healthy lifestyles for children, teens, adults and seniors.

We believe that businesses also need the best in healthcare practices, improving employees’ lives and health. PBHG operates employee assistance programs (EAPs) to help businesses improve their employees’ lifestyles and their home- and work-relationships.

These EAPs provide employees confidential and freely-accessible behavioral healthcare services, which help reduce stress, anxiety, and a wide range of other concerns for employees and staff.
