Behavioral Health Services

Behavioral Health Services of Community Howard Regional Health was established in 1971 and offers a continuum of mental health and substance abuse services to children, adolescents, adults and families.

The goal of Behavioral Health Services is to provide treatment that improves our patients' quality of life and allows those with more severe problems to remain in the community with the fewest possible restrictions. We treat each patient, regardless of why they come to us, with respect and dignity and give them the opportunity for personal growth, understanding and independence in a supportive, caring environment.
