Rogers Behavioral Health–San Francisco East Bay will be located at 420 N. Wiget Lane in Walnut Creek. Programming will include day treatment options for children, teens and adults challenged by obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety, depression and other mood disorders, and a program for treatment of anxiety and mood disorders for children and teens on the autism spectrum.

For adults who have not seen improvement in depression symptoms with the combination of therapy and medication, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) will be offered at this location and may be an effective treatment option. Additional programs are being considered for addiction/substance use disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder, and eating disorders based on community need.

 “The need is great for the type of specialized behavioral health services we offer,” says Pat Hammer, CEO and president of Rogers Behavioral Health. “As we continue to grow our regional operations, we know that being able to offer local access to this type of care, as a complement to existing local services, really makes a difference for the people we serve.

“We already serve patients from the West Coast at our nationally recognized residential treatment centers in Wisconsin,” Hammer adds. “We’re pleased this new location gives those patients a convenient option to get specialized day treatment before or after residential services when that level of care is needed.”

As chief operating officer for the West Coast region, Jay Kellison will work in tandem with a clinical director in psychology, psychiatrists and a team of behavioral health specialists in launching the new site.
