Outpatient Therapy Services
HSC offers counseling/therapy through the outpatient department to address a wide range of struggles that an individual or family with behavioral health concerns may face.

The emphasis of Adult Outpatient Services is on providing recovery oriented therapy to help reduce the effects of mental health difficulties while working to improve or maintain overall functioning in the individual’s current environment.
The objective of Child and Family Outpatient Services is to provide solution-oriented therapy to children and adolescents ages 0 – 18 and their families, focusing on the elimination of distress, while helping the individual to return to his/her normal routine as soon as possible.
