Crestwood Behavioral Health, Inc., has been providing residential mental health programs at its Eureka campus since 1979. Our campus is home to a mental health rehabilitation center, an adult residential facility, a day treatment program, and a residential care facility for the elderly. The focus of our programs centers on recognizing the unique gifts, interests and challenges of each person we serve, and supporting creativity, wellness and empowerment throughout the recovery journey. The campus location, in the heart of California Redwood country, allows clients to tap into the mental health benefits that the surrounding natural environment offers.


Courtyard Community
Residential Care Facility for Elderly

Creating a warm, home-like program for people over 60 who are transitioning back to their community is the charge of the RCFE. The core goals of the Courtyard program are promoting independence and integration into the community, providing health and wellness programs, and supporting clients in managing both physical and behavioral challenges. This program offers a variety of recovery-based tools, including Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP), and recreational activities to help them to reach their personal goals. We also have resources for clients to reach their personal dual recovery and spiritual goals.

Core Program

Bridge House
Adult Residential Program

The Bridge House program is an adult residential facility offering supportive mental health services in a comfortable, welcoming environment. Residents of Bridge House use the program and setting to sharpen their independent and community living skills. They work together to create an atmosphere of a shared community. Residents are encouraged to explore individual interests and to share knowledge, skills and talents with their peers.

Core Program


Rehabilitative Day Program
Day Treatment Program

Our Eureka campus is proud to offer a structured, rich, day treatment program that is Medi-Cal certified. A wide variety of therapeutic, educational, supportive, skill-building and creative groups and activities are offered, as well as individual support and recovery planning. Each client is encouraged to develop their own Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) during the course of their stay as a tool to prepare for community reintegration. We also have resources for clients to reach their personal dual recovery and spiritual goals. Building on existing strengths, programs are designed to support individuals as they move towards greater independence. Effort is given to developing tools and strategies for handling unique challenges, while exploring gifts, talents and pleasures which may have been denied or hidden as mental health issues took center stage.


Mental Health Rehabilitation Program

We offer the services of an MHRC in a very attractive, home-like facility. The program is intimate giving us an opportunity to work very closely with clients to set and achieve recovery goals. We use a variety of approaches to empower our clients, including Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP), earned passes into the community, and varied group topics to teach and enhance recovery skills. We also have resources for clients to reach their personal dual recovery and spiritual goals. Our Recreational Program also encourages recovery and empowerment through a range of recreational activities and outings. Our goal is to support the client in returning to the community with solid tools for success.
