Adult Behavioral Health
The Center for Health Care Services partners with the people we serve to chart a course to wellness. Our mission is to share hope and support recovery with a full spectrum of innovative services that promote healing and independence to help people live life to their full potential.
The Adult Behavioral Health program helps people with mental health challenges find hope, determine their path to wellness, and find their way to an independent productive life.
Services include medical treatment by psychiatric and primary medical providers in an integrated treatment team approach, along with therapy, skills development, wellness groups and coaching, and coordination with community resources. Recognizing that being healthy includes all aspects of a person’s life, members of the CHCS treatment team are also able to provide assistance with getting – and keeping – a job or a place to live.
At The Center for Health Care Services, we believe recovery is possible for everyone we serve, and that through a full spectrum of innovative services that promote hope and healing, people can live life to their fullest potential! The Adult Behavioral Health (ABH) division offers comprehensive, integrated primary and behavioral health care at multiple locations throughout the city including our new flagship facility — the Paul Elizondo Adult Behavioral Health Clinic located in the heart of the City.
