--Psycho-education groups including, but not limited to:
  • early recovery

We pride ourselves on matching treatment services to the needs of the individual. Maxwell's treatment programs are consistent with community-based support groups and clients are encouraged to attend these self-help activities. Staff work collaboratively with patients who have a private psychiatrist or therapist.


Maxwell is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9:00 a.m. to noon and Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. We offer evening services for those employed full-time or attending school on Mondays and Wednesdays from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Community Education Programs
