Behavioral Health

Our Mission: "Partner with individuals, families and the community for recovery from serious mental health and substance abuse issues and to promote wellness, resiliency and hope."

Behavioral Health provides services for individuals in crisis, for youth, for adults and for alcohol and drug treatment.  Services are provided in Chico, Paradise, Oroville, Gridley and rural communities. We are here to Help.

Psychiatric Health Facility (PHF)

The Psychiatric Health Facility is a 16-bed, 24-hour acute non-medical facility. The facility provides a safe environment for voluntary and involuntary clients needing acute care for mental illness to receive support and treatment. 

During an average stay of 3 to 5 days, professional staff and clients work together to restore and maintain each individual's optimal physical and emotional well being in a therapeutic atmosphere. Each individual and their family are encouraged to actively participate in their own care, and treatment planning. In addition, the staff works toward returning the individual to the best possible existence within the community at the least restrictive level of care.
