Treatment that Compassionately Respects Your Individual Needs and Concerns

We realize at Walden that no two individuals who come to us for psychiatric treatment are alike and that it is our responsibility to acknowledge and respect these differences.

Our staff uses a wide range of therapeutic modalities, medical treatments and group therapies to address the needs of the whole person in a compassionate and caring way.

Thoreau Center for Inpatient Care

Walden’s Thoreau Center for Inpatient Psychiatric Care is a short-term, 24-bed locked unit that treats females and males —ages 16 and older — with complex mental illnesses. These include depression, bipolar disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, co-morbid disorders and addictive disorders. The center is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, with an average length of stay of eight days.
