How Pick.Click.Give. makes a difference
We have undergoine a name-change, so you might know us by our old name (Alaska Baptist Family Services) or our new name: Birchwood Behavioral Health. And while our name has changed, our mission and programs remain the same!
Our services are structured with one primary goal in mind: To renew HOPE in the lives of our clients and their families by reducing the negative impacts of trauma and increasing their resiliencies.
Our two residential programs, Hunter Cottage (for boys 9-13 years old) and Aspen Cottage (for girls 13-18 years old), are both located on our beautiful 20-acre campus in South Anchorage. Each cottage is designed to create a warm, home-like environment for our clients to feel safe and cared for. We have an incredible team of qualified mental health professionals who, along with our trained treatment counselors, provide a variety of services tailored to meet the individual needs of each child and their family. Some of those services include:
-24-hour support and supervision by our trained Treatment Counselors
-Individual, Family & Group Psychotherapy with our Master’s level Clinicians
-Medication Management & basic Primary Healthcare with our PhD Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner
-Daily Psycho-Educational groups to enhance Life Skills and Build Resiliency
