Alternative to Meds Center is an integrative mental health center, specializing in inpatient treatments for mental health issues and addiction.

Advantages of Inpatient Mental Health Treatment

Sometimes, we may assess that a hospital setting may, in fact, be needed for acute situations where a person needs to be stabilized as a priority in treatment. However, it has been found that treatment in caring residential settings can break the repeating cycle of hospitalizations when crises can continue to arise. At Alternative to Meds Center, the goal is to get to the root(s) of the problem(s). In these ways, we help our clients gain a firm footing, using practical and holistic tools, functional medicine, and benefiting from authentic, compassionate support as they journey back to natural mental health.1
