Purpose Statement

The Bon Secours Behavioral Health OMHC and PHEP/IOP programs recognize the unique human dignity and spiritual value of each individual that we serve. It is our mission to instill hope in the lives of others and to promote their mental, spiritual, and physical wellbeing. It is our purpose to liberate our patients to reach their full potential by building therapeutic relationships based on mutual respect and trust, and by using creative and innovative best practices. We strive to lead the way in meeting the diverse needs of our community by providing a comprehensive range of behavioral health services that are collaborative, patient-centered, and evidence based.  

Outpatient Mental Health Clinic

Bon Secours' Outpatient Mental Health Clinic provides services for depression, anxiety, trauma and other mental health needs.  Our outpatient services include individual, group, couples and family counseling, medication management and referral services for individuals with substance use disorders.  

The Clinic also provides services to children between the ages of 5 and 18 who are experiencing difficulty coping in school, at home or in the community because of emotional or behavioral challenges. Our program offers therapeutic services to increase problem-solving and adaptive coping skills. Treatment options include individual, family and group therapies, parent support, and medication management. 

Intensive Outpatient Program

The intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) offers intensive, time-limited, outpatient psychiatric services to patients living in the community. The IOP meets the needs of individuals who require less than 24-hour care, but who need more comprehensive psychiatric evaluation and treatment than can reasonably be provided in a traditional outpatient setting.

  • Three (3) hours of treatment
  • Individual and intensive assessment
  • Medication consultation and evaluation as needed
