Every individual’s mental health journey is different, which is why North Ward Behavioral Health Center offers a range of options to suit each patient’s unique needs. We’ll work with you to decide which of the following options might be best for your circumstances:

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)

A goal-oriented form of treatment, CBT is used to treat depression, anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and other mental health conditions.

Counseling services

In partnership with an experienced professional, patients can receive counseling services that suit their unique needs. This includes:

  • Grief and loss counseling: These services help patients cope with different forms of loss, such as the death of a loved one or pet, the end of a relationship, familial estrangement, and others.
  • Group therapy: Multiple patients receive treatment from one or more providers simultaneously. Group therapy is utilized for individuals managing various conditions, including ADHD, anxiety, depression, emotional trauma, and PTSD.
  • Individual counseling: These sessions allow patients to receive one-on-one support and guidance from a professional.
  • Family therapy: From major life transitions to the loss of a loved one, therapy can help families in many ways.
  • Couples and marriage counseling: This type of therapy focuses on identifying and resolving conflicts, to help couples overcome specific challenges.
  • Play therapy: This psychotherapy treatment is sometimes used to help children navigate emotional and mental struggles.
  • Relationship counseling: Focused on a couple’s history, relationship counseling helps partners develop the skills necessary to build a solid foundation together.
  • Motivational interviewing: Centered on motivation and commitment, motivational interviewing offers a short-term treatment plan that helps people effectively deal with specific struggles.

Follow-up appointments

Some treatments, such as medications, require follow-up appointments so the psychiatrist can observe the effectiveness of the dosage and side effects. These consultations show them if any changes are necessary.

Medication management

It is difficult to keep track of multiple prescriptions and medication schedules while you’re struggling with a condition. Our medication management services provide assistance and reminders to ensure you take the right doses at the right times. We also oversee prescriptions to avoid adverse reactions with any other medications you’re taking and to be sure the prescribed medications work as they should.

Substance abuse treatment

Substance abuse and dependence is challenging to overcome, and it affects every individual differently. We offer a wide range of treatment options and will work with each client to devise an effective plan. Treatment may include a combination of individual counseling, group support, medication, and more.

  • Drug addiction: Drug addiction can take many forms. Our specialists can treat patients for dependency on opiates, prescription medications, cocaine, stimulants, amphetamines, sedatives, cannabis, and more.
  • Alcohol addiction: Alcohol is one of the most commonly abused substances in America due to its easy accessibility and social acceptance. We offer our expertise to help patients detoxify and build a new lifestyle free from dependence.


At North Ward Behavioral Health Center, we understand that a single treatment method may not be equally effective for all patients. Instead of trying to help everyone in the same way, we collaborate with our patients to understand their unique needs and devise a treatment plan that is specific to their situation. We even offer telepsychology services for patients who need these services in a virtual environment.
Many of our recovery plans utilize a combination of different treatment types and methods. By approaching a patient’s needs from multiple directions, we help them overcome their challenges more comprehensively and effectively.
