We are here for you

At times, life can feel overwhelming. But when problems start to feel too large to manage and daily tasks become insurmountable, remember you are not alone. Our team at Jackson House is here to help.

Our short-term, voluntary residential program is built around evidence-based treatment. We provide you with a caring, personalized environment to address your mental health needs 24 hours a day. We will work with you to manage your symptoms, give you the tools to get well and teach you the life skills you need to be successful on your own.

We built Jackson House because we realized there was a critical gap in our healthcare system and many individuals with mental illnesses and substance abuse problems were struggling because of it. While there are many outpatient treatment options and locked, inpatient facilities there was nothing in the middle. Nothing to help people who needed around the clock care but wanted to receive treatment voluntarily, on their own terms. Jackson House is different. We provide clients with the level of care they need in a welcoming environment. When you walk through our doors, we will meet you wherever you’re at and help you on your journey toward feeling better.

We all need a hand sometimes. If you need help, let our team be there for you.

Jackson House is part of the Alvarado Parkway Institute Behavioral Health System.
