Why Did You Choose Northstar Behavioral Health?

I appreciate the opportunity to contribute at Northstar in an environment that provides compassion for clients as they learn new skills to stabilize their lives.  I am impressed with the nurturing comfortable setting that is provided for residential clients, and endorse the 90 day program that provides clients enough time to integrate skills taught.
