Confidential Care for Your Entire Being
In a private, confidential building, we help treat a variety of conditions using evidence-based techniques. Using the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) criteria, our professionals assess each patient to ensure a proper level of care.
All parts of the person – physical, emotional, social, mental and spiritual – are important, and our treatment carefully integrates each aspect to promote holistic healing.
Diagnosis, Counseling and Medication Options
From obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and anxiety, bipolar disorder and depression, to eating disorders—we can help accurately address mental conditions with proper treatment or referrals.
If you and your provider find that you may benefit from medication, our team will seamlessly refer you to an Avera psychiatrist. With their help, prescribed medications – and management of those treatments – can help with a wide range of behavioral health conditions.
Telehealth Care for Behavioral Health Concerns
If you or a loved one is in urgent need of behavioral health, ask about Avera’s Triage Therapist Program through Avera's telehealth system. The program can help ensure that you and a professional meet, either online or in person, within 72 hours. Your visit might lead to a referral, if needed, or other services best suited for you.
Our team also offers addiction care referral services, and connects you or your loved ones to nearby inpatient addiction care centers or other supportive groups.
