Person Centered Mental Health Treatment

Mental health treatment for bipolar, schizophrenia, depression, anxiety, PTSD is and always has been person-first at CooperRiis. We treat people, not diagnoses in a residential setting.

While we offer clinical supports such as individual and group psychotherapy, integrative psychiatry, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) to address psychiatric disorders, many other aspects of recovery are also offered: horticulture and art therapy, culinary, woodworking and animal care skills, and community service. Individuals typically spend 20 to 25 hours a week in structured work activities while also receiving clinical care.

A strong belief in human potential and the growth that is possible in a loving and supportive community is key to the recovery experience at CooperRiis. For many, this is exactly the kind of soil that helps them flourish and build a life of purpose.

We are supportive of LGBTQ, gender non-conforming, non-binary and/or genderqueer persons and engage in practices that raise gender awareness for all. We focus on gender inclusive language in our practice settings, and are committed to deepening our knowledge around gender expression and gender identity to promote a safe and supportive space.

We want to get to know you and what makes you special, and help you fulfill your life dream.

To learn more, please contact an admissions counselor at (828) 984-7140 between 8am and 6pm Monday-Friday.
