Compassionate & Quality Level of Care Is Our Main Concern


B & D is staffed by psychological and psychiatric associates with a wealth of broad based knowledge in Mental Health and Mental Health Services. We offer an array of services including medication management, psychological assessments, individual and group psychotherapy, case management and community based services (including Community Support (CST) and starting in March, 2010 Assertive Community Treatment Team (ACTT). Our philosophy is to provide comprehensive services that are designed to be flexible, client-centered, family focused, culturally sensitive and empirically based. In today’s climate of managed care and the internet, our goal is to empower individuals and families to be informed treatment consumers by providing them with knowledge that will allow them to make the best possible treatment decisions. B & D recognizes the limited number of treatment providers that accept clients with Medicaid benefits and we welcome psychiatric and psychological referrals for this underserved population (children, adolescents and adults). Finally, in an effort to reach out to the broader community, we offer extended clinic hours and are located on the bus line.
