Our promise to you

An environment that feels warm and welcoming
We appreciate all that makes you, you. At Walden Behavioral™, every individual, no matter the age, gender, diagnosis, ethnicity, sexual orientation or socioeconomic background, receives equal access to our empathetic and affirming care. Our diverse team of care professionals has experience working with all types of people and understands that all healing journeys are unique.

Treatment methods that have proven to support lasting recovery.
We want to help set you up for continued success following treatment. For that reason, we rely on information from scientific research as a guide for the work we will do together. Much of your time with us will be spent learning adaptive coping skills to replace unhealthy behaviors, implementing mindfulness-based skills to help fight urges in the moment and reframing unhelpful thoughts or beliefs that are getting in the way of your recovery.

The level of support that is appropriate for you
No matter where you are in your healing journey, we will provide you with the level of support you need for your current psychological and medical needs. Having varying levels of care helps us to ensure that transitioning from one level to another is as quick, seamless and stress-free as possible.

We will work with you – and your insurance company.
Your health and recovery are of the utmost importance to us and we work hard to secure in-network contracts with the majority of insurance and managed care companies.

A specialized treatment team dedicated to YOU.
Our empathetic and experienced team is here to support your specific needs every step of the way. Treatment requires an integrated and personalized approach. By choosing Walden, you will receive an individualized treatment plan and care from an experienced team of professionals that could include psychologists, dietitians, psychiatric prescribers, doctors, nurses and mental health counselors.
