Caring and effective mental health services

Clients often mention their fond memories of the La Selva community and describe it as a source of strength. La Selva provides a comfortable setting for therapy, where clients can explore their symptoms, develop new insights and transition to a healthier state of mind.
Since 1979, La Selva Group has provided caring and effective mental health services. We offer a psychiatric-based array of services for adults, including residential treatment; psychiatric diagnosis, medication management and treatment; outpatient mental health and rehabilitation services; crisis intervention, case management and supportive housing. All services are individualized and designed to assist each person utilize his/her strengths, talents, and skills to meet challenges, retain or regain hope and move forward to recovery. La Selva Group's services provide quality professional treatment that respects the dignity of each individual and offers a holistic approach to well being.
La Selva Group's programs are designed to engage clients in a process of learning to manage the illness, gaining insight, discovering potentials and changing behaviors. This is accomplished through the use of psychosocial groups, individual counseling and therapy, life skill development activities, recreation and social skill development activities all based in our therapeutic community. Individuals learn to identify what behaviors and environments support health and which ones increase stress and distress.
Our treatment programs are individualized to meet each person's specific needs. Our clinical team provides a careful assessment of each client's needs and then collaborates with the client to set therapy goals and design appropriate therapy programs. Clinicians working with the clients consult with one another regularly to assess progress toward the goals, and to set up appropriate discharge plans.
