Our youth outpatient therapy program provides a safe, inclusive space for children and their families to build and maintain strong, healthy relationships within and outside the home. A diverse team of skilled and compassionate therapists addresses behavioral challenges and family dynamics. Medication management is available for youth with more significant concerns. Therapists collaborate with school counselors, physicians, and other resource providers in the life of the family to provide integrated and comprehensive care.

Preferred Behavioral Health Group provides multiple youth and adult services to address emotional, mental, and behavioral health issues. However, some situations require different services. If your child is experiencing life-threatening danger or the immediate risk of harming themselves, take them to the nearest emergency room or dial 911 for immediate assistance.
