The Retreat at Sheppard Pratt provides expert psychiatric care in a beautiful, residential setting.
At our highly personalized treatment program, experienced doctors lead every aspect of care, meaning our residents have the opportunity to make meaningful progress toward recovery.

Recovery and Rehabilitation at The Retreat

Mental health disorders are complex and require a personalized approach to care. Most of our residents at The Retreat experience more than one disorder (co-occurring disorders), which may lead to addictions. At The Retreat, we have the resources and expertise to provide the highest level of care for people with co-occurring disorders.

We provide evidence-based mind and body therapy in the most individualized, compassionate, and comprehensive way possible. Our residents have frequent access to experienced psychiatrists and other mental health professionals. You or your loved one will have every opportunity to heal and lead a happier, more productive life.
