The experienced staff at Samaritan Behavioral Health offers a variety of valuable services to its patients on an outpatient basis.
Samaritan Behavioral Health

Lifewell Program Services
The Lifewell Program provides intensive outpatient services for patients in need of significant assistance with coping skills and support. These services go beyond what is generally available in a traditional, outpatient mental-health setting.
Many patients in Lifewell are transitioning from an acute inpatient hospitalization, while others are seeking more intensive services in order to avoid a potential hospitalization.
Group therapy sessions assist patients in developing a wide range of symptom management and coping skills. Psychiatric services monitor and fine-tune psychotropic medications (used to treat psychiatric disorders). Case management services connect clients to additional community resources, as well as ongoing therapy following completion of the program.
