North Range Adult Services Network
With over 115 staff, our Adult Services network offers a variety of proven and trauma-informed approaches to help adults with mental health or substance use challenges. When one thinks of “therapy,” typically the image of a couch in a warmly lit, fern-filled office comes to mind. And while we do offer traditional outpatient individual, family, and group therapy as well as psychiatric and medication services in office settings, we provide many other ways to help people in recovery.
