Behavioral Health Services is licensed by the Oklahoma State Department of Health as a specialized psychiatric children’s treatment program. It is also licensed by the Department of Human Services as a residential treatment program and is accredited by The Joint Commission (formerly JCAHO). Inpatient Treatment

A team of psychiatrists provide diagnosis, medication management and supervision of all aspects of a patient’s treatment.

BHS is led by Medical Director Dr. Marvin Jin who has been with the program since it was established over 20 years ago. Low staff turnover and a high level of employee satisfaction mark our staff’s passion for their profession. Daily Life

To allow for the best possible experience for our patients, four specialized units are offered – children; early adolescent; adolescent acute and adolescent residential. The early adolescent unit is designed with the unique physical and emotional needs of patients’ ages 9 – 13. The children’s unit is the only one of its kind in northeast Oklahoma to accept patients as young as three years old. By placing each patient in the unit best suited to his or her age, health needs and maturity level, our therapists are able to tailor activities, therapy and discussions to allow for the best possible outcome for each individual involved. While in treatment, patients attend classes through Tulsa Public Schools’ onsite Therapeutic School. During the summer, enrichment classes are offered in place of regular school curriculum. The department also offers an onsite gymnasium for recreational activities and an enclosed playground. interpreter some
metaphors guides environmentalists responses from patients "I got to let out all of my feelings that were all built up inside
and it was very comfortable for me to that. And it made me
feel like I was not alone" This treatment program has helped me by enabling me to acknowledge the cause of my actions and the core of my depression. It has given me new ways to cope with any problems that may arise in the future." "I noticed that the humor (of the staff) was helpful to most patients, and during group therapy that lifted everyone's spirits. I needed time to get my thoughts together, and the people here helped me reach an epiphany for my direction and purpose in life."
