A residential setting for expert psychiatric care.
A nurturing haven for hope.

The Retreat at Sheppard Pratt provides intensive, personalized psychiatric care in a discreet residential environment to treat a wide range of behavioral health conditions, including depression, treatment-resistant depression, anxiety, mood and personality disorders, addictive behaviors, and more.

retreat_treatment_copy.jpgTypically, individuals come to The Retreat because they want the privacy and luxury of a residential treatment setting to better understand their issues and to find solutions without the distractions of their everyday hectic lives. They are struggling to heal on their own, and seeking a higher level of care and an individualized support system. Often, their issues coincide with a life event such as loss, marital problems, employment transition, retirement, trouble navigating relationships, an inability to achieve their goals, or others.

Our renowned psychiatrists, psychoanalysts, psychologists, and therapists assess and treat the whole person to help them better cope with life stressors, providing compassionate, comprehensive care and support. Our approach is to give each resident every opportunity for meaningful progress toward recovery.

The Retreat is a self-pay, residential psychiatric treatment program for individuals 18 and older. Stays last from three weeks to several months, with long term psychiatric care being a last resort. The goal, of course, is for healing to last far beyond the period of residency.
