About Us

About Clarion Psychiatric Center

Located on 14 acres in Western Pennsylvania, Clarion Psychiatric Center’s secure, serene facility serves patients ages 7 and older in a positive, affirming therapeutic environment. Our treatment programs are designed for children, adolescents and adults who face psychiatric, behavioral or emotional problems. We make it our mission to provide each of our patients with the care we would expect for ourselves or a loved one.

We are fully accredited by The Joint Commission, and we strive to treat our patients like family.

At Clarion Psychiatric Center, our solution-oriented treatment plans are tailored to meet the individual needs of each patient. Treatment focuses on reducing acute symptoms and teaching healthy coping skills.

We also understand that many of those who seek treatment with us are survivors of trauma. As a provider of trauma-informed care, our staff work to understand how past traumas may influence a patient’s response to treatment.

Some of the issues we treat include:

  • Anxiety and panic disorder
  • Depression
  • Suicidal thoughts or actions
  • Extreme anger and aggression
  • Emotional disorders that are complicated by a dependency on drugs or alcohol (co-occurring disorders)
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Paranoia
  • Schizophrenia/hallucinations/delusions
  • Attention deficit disorder
  • Family conflicts
  • Other emotional difficulties

A no-cost, confidential assessment can help you determine the right level of care for yourself or a loved one. Call us 24/7 at 800-253-4906.
