Services and specialties

Linden Oaks Behavioral Health is dedicated to complete recovery. We offer general behavioral and mental health programs to help adolescents and adults rediscover themselves through new ways of communicating and coping that restore and maintain a healthy balance.

We specialize in treating the following:

  • Addiction. As a leading center for the treatment of chemical dependency addictions, Linden Oaks offers a variety of services at each stage of the addiction and recovery process, including dual diagnosis, detoxification and the Student Intervention program for adolescents.
  • Adolescent programs. We realize that it’s not only adults who suffer from behavioral health conditions. At least one in five children and adolescents suffer from a behavioral health disorder. When left untreated, behavioral health disorders can lead to issues at school, family conflicts, substance abuse and even thoughts of death. Early intervention is important to the recovery process. At Linden Oaks, we have experts who specialize in the treatment of adolescents.
  • Anxiety. Anxiety disorders are the most common mental health problem in the U.S. In fact, more than 40 million adults and 1 in 10 children and adolescents suffer from an anxiety disorder in any given year. We offer programs tailored to the specific needs of adults and adolescents with anxiety-related disorders.
  • Autism. Linden Oaks offers Aspirations, an intensive outpatient program designed to help adolescents with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) more effectively manage their anxiety and/or depression.
  • Child and Parent Anxiety. Anxiety, avoidance and/or refusal to attend school can have significant short-term and long-term effects on the social, emotional and educational development of children. Short-term effects may include poor academic performance, family difficulties and problems with peer relationships. Long-term effects may include academic underachievement, employment difficulties and increased risk for psychiatric illness.
  • Depression. We all feel sad from time to time. But clinical depression and postpartum depression are far more than just feeling sad. Depression takes over your daily life and makes it difficult to face work, school, family and friends. It may even get in the way of your ability to eat, sleep, and take care of yourself. When these feelings won't go away, it's time to seek help from mental health professionals, like those at Linden Oaks.
  • Eating disorders. Eating disorders affect more than eight million teenagers and young adults in the United States. Yet many of them go undiagnosed because they hide their symptoms. Without proper care, this treatable disease can be fatal. We help individuals address complex psychological issues while treating physical and dietary needs.
  • Emerging adult. Entering adulthood can be daunting with navigating new responsibilities and learning how to establish independence after adolescence. Many young adults experience various mental health challenges due to not feeling prepared enough to function as an adult on their own.
  • Evening/weekend Creative Arts. The utilization of creative arts therapy offers a distinctive and impactful pathway to stimulate healing, personal development and self-exploration. This inventive, multi-sensory methodology capitalizes on the expressive qualities of art, music, drama and movement, thereby unlocking deeper emotions and facilitating transformative journeys.
  • PTSD. Following a traumatic event or after living with recurring trauma, many survivors experience symptoms including depression, intrusive thoughts, anxiety, flashbacks, nightmares, avoidant behavior, or sleep disturbances. At Linden Oaks, we offer cognitive processing therapy (CPT), a highly effective, short-term, group-based therapy for people with PTSD.
  • Mental health services for seniors. Older men and women have unique medical and psychological needs. It may be difficult to identify an older adult who is struggling. The first sign often occurs when a person suddenly stops caring for himself/herself. Depression, dementia, or aggression are other indications. Linden Oaks Behavioral Health is one of the few hospitals to offer an inpatient program dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of adults age 60 and older.
  • Counseling. Therapists in Linden Oaks Medical Group provide traditional outpatient talk therapy.
  • Medication management. Psychiatrists in Linden Oaks Medical Group help patients manage and regulate their medication.
  • School refusal. Anxiety, avoidance and/or refusal to attend school can have significant short- and long-term effects on social, emotional and educational development for adolescents. At Linden Oaks, we believe assessment and management of these issues require a collaborative approach between the student, school staff, parents and mental health professionals.
  • Self-injury. Self-injury has been on the rise for the past decade, particularly among adolescents. Behaviors such as cutting and burning of one's self can confuse and frighten family members of adolescents engaging in these behaviors.
  • Mental Health First Aid. Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an evidenced-based public education program that teaches people the key skills needed to help someone with a mental health problem or crisis. Mental Health First Aid focuses on the skills that can be used until professional help is obtained. Upon completion of this 8-hour training program, participants receive a Mental Health First Aid Certificate.
  • Crisis Response Team. The Linden Oaks Crisis Response Team provides information, support and referrals designed to offer immediate and practical resources for those affected by trauma and serious loss.
  • Support groups. Ongoing care is the key to long-term recovery from behavioral health issues. Linden Oaks Behavioral Health hosts a variety of support groups to reinforce the coping skills learned during treatment and/or support the family and friends of individuals in recovery.
