We provide effective, comprehensive, quality treatment to help you deal with your struggles, whether related to mental illness, developmental disability, or co-existing substance use disorder.

TBHS wants you to know that working together with you and if you choose, your family, helps build the necessary partnership to address your needs openly with care and respect. We will listen to you in detail, call you by your name and accept you as a person.
