Why did you choose Northstar Behavioral Health?

I wanted to focus my career with an organization that promoted patient-centered care.  I believe in addressing the medical needs of my patients with a holistic approach and so does NBH.  Using evidence-based practices is a vital component in a person’s treatment and promotes their successful recovery, and sometimes that includes being open to medication-assisted treatment options. Northstar supports my initiatives to provide the best nursing and medical practices for our clients.
