We find patients have a tendency to recover faster when the family is content with the level of care their loved one is receiving so we include family and friends as part of the healing process as much as possible.
Avera Behavioral Health gives you access to a multitude of experienced professionals dedicated to providing you with specialized care for the body, mind and spirit. If you or someone you love is in need of a behavioral health provider see our list of providers to find one near you.
Avera Behavioral Health understands that art is a powerful part of the healing process. Not only is art used as a therapy tool at specific facilities, it also is used throughout our buildings to convey a sense of serenity and hope. All pieces of art in the Avera Behavioral Health Center are based in some way on Psalm 139:9-10: "If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast."

The safety of our patients, staff and visitors at any Avera Behavioral Health facility is one of the leading aspects of the care we offer. Security may vary depending on location, but all facilities have numerous security and safety measures in place.
