What are the goals of treatment?

We understand seeking help is not an easy decision. Our trained professionals are dedicated to maintaining every patient’s self-respect and dignity throughout all phases of treatment.

During an average stay of 14 days, our goal is to meet each individual’s special needs while also providing essential resources and support for the families that love them. Together, we’re able to create an environment that maximizes the independence, maintains the dignity and enhances the quality of life for every patient in our community.

At LaSalle, we believe that a patient’s recovery is enhanced when his or her loved ones take part in the process. We place great value upon family involvement in the treatment process by urging family members to participate as much as possible in our program. If you feel your loved one might benefit from the special services we offer, we invite you to contact us today.
