At CTO Health Services we see mental health treatment as a relationship between the individual seeking treatment and the clinical team. The treatment team is made up of the intake specialist, therapist, psychiatrist, and clinical director.
We approach mental health treatment from a recovery-oriented approach, recognizing that there are many factors that lead people to come to treatment. We identify that there are intrinsic strengths in every person we serve. Their resilience leads us to respect their right to self-determination as together we craft goals to create hope and bring dreams into reality.
