Behavioral Health


If you or a loved one are struggling with addiction or mental health issues, you don’t have to face the challenge alone. At Waterbury HEALTH, we recognize that mental and emotional well-being is just as important as physical health. Our team of behavioral health experts is committed to helping individuals discover their best selves through personalized, compassionate care.  

We treat all individuals regardless of race, gender, religion, sexual preference, or socioeconomic status. Our comprehensive range of behavioral health services is readily accessible to the Greater Waterbury community. Outpatient services are available Monday through Friday with flexible scheduling. Most notably, all of our adult outpatient services and addiction programs offer open access admissions, meaning that people in need of help can come in without an appointment.  

Our expert team consists of board-certified psychiatrists, advanced practice registered nurses, licensed therapists, substance abuse counselors, and registered nurses. We utilize state-of-the-art therapies that assist our clients in achieving their goals in a manner that preserves privacy, promotes dignity, and encourages hope. The care approach taken by our providers is multidisciplinary and encourages patients to be active participants in their own treatment.
