Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT)

Do you struggle with severe depression? Are medications and therapy not helping? Talk to your doctor, as electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) treatment may be an option for you. Treatment involves a brief electrical stimulation to the brain while you're under anesthesia. Your individual needs determine treatment. On average a course of treatment consists of eight to ten visits, three times a week. We’re one of only three hospitals in New Hampshire to offer ECT treatment.

Substance Abuse Treatment

If you, or someone you know, has a substance use problem and is seeking substance abuse treatment our expert Substance Use Services providers can connect you to the most appropriate level of care based on your individual needs.

Right Care, Right Place, Right Time

Getting the right mental health care, in the right place and at the right time can help ensure you get the most appropriate services for your situation, and often, will save you time and health care costs.

If you or your loved one, experience symptoms requiring emergency services, a psychiatric specialist in our Emergency Department will assess you to determine the best plan for you to receive the care to treat your individual needs. If your symptoms are not posing a direct and immediate danger to you or others, you’ll receive the most appropriate, timely and cost-effective care through your primary care provider’s (PCP) office. Your PCP may prescribe medications to treat your symptoms and or manage your existing medications, as well as refer you to a licensed mental health counselor or a psychiatrist specialist for treatment.
