Behavioral Health Programs

Backpackers celebratingNorth Star Behavioral Health System provides a comfortable environment designed to respond to the psychiatric needs of children, teens and adults. Our multidisciplinary treatment approach utilizes the involvement of family and community members to help facilitate optimal growth and nurturing throughout the recovery process. Through evidence-based practices and individualized care, we strive to guide each patient toward a healthier lifestyle.

Our treatment programs provide a therapeutic milieu for a variety of diagnoses and problems including psychotic disorders, mood disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, intermittent explosive disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, anxiety disorders, high risk behaviors and fetal alcohol spectrum disorder.

Based on the seriousness of the situation, some patients come to the hospital for intensive short-term treatment to begin the healing process and then return home, while others need the stability of a longer-term residential treatment program to learn the skills needed for emotional and social stability and security.
