Behavioral Health Care That Fits In Your Life

Our Day and Evening adult outpatient day programs are designed to help! Don’t deal with anxiety, depression, self-harm and/or thoughts of death, life transition, loss of pleasure, lack of support, grief, trauma, work struggles or social activities avoidance alone. These adult outpatient day programs are part of the continuum of care offered for both adults and adolescents in the Seattle metropolitan area and can be used as an alternative to hospitalization. Adult outpatient services offer a more intensive care than a weekly office visit but don’t require an overnight stay or 24-hour care. Our adult outpatient programs include group therapy, individualized case management with a licensed clinician, structured family involvement, as well as a medication evaluation, and management by a board-certified psychiatrist.
