Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

We want to address concerns about COVID-19

Niznik Behavioral Health (NBH) is dedicated to the health and safety of our clients and staff.  Our top priority is ensuring the integrity of our facilities, our clients lives, and our dedicated employes. NBH is aware of the growing concern of Coronavirus nationwide and in our communities. In response to this situation, facility management has been closely following the Center for Disease Control and the Joint Commission for best practices. Our staff has been trained on the CDC's recommended guidelines for COVID-19 and is actively implementing new procedures into our daily routine. We are rigorously maintaining a safe, sanitary environment including heightened disinfecting and increased hygiene protocols to effectively combat the spread of COVID-19.

We are currently accepting patients into all of our facilities with increased health and safety precautions.

Our NBH team is incredibly proud of the work we do to help individuals and families struggling with addiction and behavioral health disorders. We are ever-vigilant at this time to fulfill our mission of providing the highest level of care for each person we serve. We will continue to update you with any new policies, procedures or developing news.
