Mountain Lakes
Behavioral Healthcare

Welcome to the Mountain Lakes Behavioral Healthcare (MLBHC) webpage. Whether you are interested in seeking services with us, are interested in becoming a valuable member of our treatment team, or are just looking for information, I hope you will find all the information here that you need. MLBHC has been providing excellent mental health and substance abuse treatment services for our local communities for over 40 years and we have a wonderful team of caring professionals available to meet your needs. If you are in need of our services, don’t wait any longer, please call us today.

We know that people spend far more time addressing their physical health than their mental health. We also know that mental illness is more common than cancer, lung disease and heart disease combined. An untreated mental illness or substance abuse problem can complicate many minor and serious physical disorders. Mental illness and substance abuse disorders are not a weakness or a personality flaw. Anyone can be affected by mental illness and substance abuse issues, regardless of age, gender, race or status. When you or a family member needs help with a difficult issue, Mountain Lakes Behavioral Healthcare is the answer.Myron Gargis, Executive Director
