Our relatively small, welcoming agency provides all of the following services at a single, convenient location:

Psychiatric Medication Management
Individual Therapy
Suboxone Program for Opioid Replacement Treatment
Inpatient Substance Abuse Counseling
 Intensive Outpatient Addiction Treatment Program
BHRM is committed to continually re-evaluating and improving these services to meet the complex challenges facing the persons we serve. Most recently we have developed a more flexible, individualized model of care in the treatment of addictions and co-occurring mental health disorders (COD).
  • We are increasing individualization in our Suboxone program, to reduce barriers to treatment.
  • We are individualizing treatment based on the client’s “stage of change”, providing Motivation Enhancement Treatment (MET) as an alternative to IOP for those persons who are still “contemplative” about their recovery.
  • We offer a special addiction treatment track for persons with more serious co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders (COD).
  • We are offering a psychiatric evaluation to our substance use clients who do not currently have a psychiatric provider.
  • We are adding an expanded array of “best practice” outpatient groups including groups for trauma and PTSD, anger management, motivation enhancement, and building cognitive- behavioral skills.
