Programs at UPMC Western Behavioral Health

The path to good mental health is never a solo journey. Your mental health is important to your family, friends, and all who care about you. And at UPMC Western Behavioral Health, you become part of a supporting and caring community focused on your best outcomes.

Our programs:

  • Cover the full range of mental and behavioral health care, from childhood to late adulthood.
  • Provide expertise for individual behavioral health concerns. We focus on specific diagnoses or issues — including mood disorders (such as anxiety and depression), eating disorders, addiction, and autism and developmental concerns.
  • Offer inpatient, outpatient, and community-based care that is customized to each person's evolving needs.
  • Support you and your family, regardless of age or ability to pay.

Addiction Services and Programs

Addiction and substance use disorders can take over your life. We can help you regain control. We have a methadone program, three detox centers, and other substance use programs for adults ages 18 and older. Our specialized mental health providers also offer programs for adolescents with addiction and substance use disorders.

Adult Mental Health Programs

There’s no single cause of mental health problems. Some start at a young age but aren't diagnosed until adulthood. Most mental health issues are caused by a combination of factors. Our programs can help treat and manage your mental health care issues, such as stress, anxiety, and depression.

Autism and Developmental Disorders

Late-Life Geriatric Mental Health Care

Older adults can experience mental health challenges for many reasons — from isolation and loss of family and friends to illness, chronic pain, and loss of mobility. Older adults also are at increased risk of dementia and depression. Western Behavioral Health brings decades of experience, research, and care to treat both the mental and physical health needs of older adults.
