On behalf of Strong Behavioral Health, it is my pleasure to welcome you to this overview of our clinical services. Our goal is simply to provide the finest behavioral health services available. Together with our community partners, we are committed to providing care that is accessible, culturally sensitive, and enriched through teaching and research.

Strong Behavioral Health provides a full range of mental health, primary medical care and addiction treatment services. Inpatient hospital services include general units for children, adolescents and adults, with special units for older adults and individuals with co-occurring substance use disorders. Strong Behavioral Health also features a Comprehensive Psychiatric Emergency Program (CPEP), and a Consult/Liaison Program that serves Strong Memorial Hospital, including Medicine, Surgery, Ob-Gyn, Pediatrics, Neurology and the Cancer Center.

In addition, Strong Behavioral Health features a wide array of outpatient services. These include child and adolescent services, older adult services, a family therapy service, addiction treatment services including methadone maintenance and buprenorphine treatment, services for adults with severe mental illnesses, and partial hospital services. Specialty services for Spanish-speaking families, deaf persons and other special populations are also available.
