Beyond this core program, integrated mental health may include psychiatric consultations, medication management, and family therapy. Families are invited for free weekly support group and educational sessions.

For adults over 50, dedicated residential and outpatient programs consist of discussions on issues related to family, career, health, and more, as well as guest speakers on finding recovery later in life.
