Who We Are​

Alter is a mental health treatment center for adults and families with complex psychiatric disorders, that offers a broad range of treatment levels to meet the needs of a wide variety of mental health challenges and conditions.

Tailored Support​

A Continuum of Transformative Care

Alter follows a long-term model of care that supports the entire evolution of healing and growth to ensure its participants acquire the health- and self-management, practical, relational, and daily living skills necessary for maintainable and lasting change.

Our primary treatment approach is a unique and modernized therapeutic community model that integrates attachment theory, trauma-informed perspectives, somatic-based approaches, and narrative therapy, in addition to the time-tested milieu model and established evidence-based practices.

Empowering Paths to Wellness​

Our residential support services range from licensed (non-locked) mental health homes with 24/7 staff and nursing support, to transitional living houses with individually tailored staff support available, to independent program-assisted housing, to outpatient full-independence living. Within our supportive and structured therapeutic milieu, numerous therapeutic services are available and designed to be tailored to each unique individual and family.

Our range of services include intensive individual, group, and family psychotherapy, psychiatric and medication management support, addiction and substance use disorder curriculum, social and independent living skills training, nutrition and physical wellness support, academic and vocational guidance, and many other supportive and adjunctive services to best build a comprehensive and well-rounded treatment plan. In short, we offer a full continuum of care with the basic goal of helping our clients gain the functional skills necessary to have a full, productive, and happy life.

What Makes Us Different ​

At Alter, we adopt a long-term approach to supporting our clients and their families in healing from the effects of mental illness, learning new skills, and reclaiming a sense of hope for the present and the future. For these changes to be both ingrained and sustainable, opportunity, practice, and proficiency are required.

Oftentimes, individuals and their families become stuck in a vicious cycle of crisis-stabilization-crisis, where day-to-day living becomes one of crisis management and survival. Acute and short-term treatment interventions tend to focus primarily on compliance for immediate symptom stabilization, which is important for safety, however, is not sufficient for the lasting transformation.

At Alter, our aim is to support each client and their family through the entire arc of comprehensive change, from the beginning stages of uncertainty and fear all the way through the integration and application of recovery to all aspects of living. The arc of change is nonlinear; the missteps and surprises are just as important as the successes and achievements. We are here to support you the entire way.

With our services always expanding and evolving to meet the needs of our clients, our objective remains the same: develop innovative, clinically validated solutions to drive positive real-world impact on people’s mental health and lives. To get there, we’re building a better mental healthcare platform – one that measures the impact of our treatment efforts. One where there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to mental health. We tailor our care plans to fit each person’s unique needs.
