Outpatient services are provided in an office setting weekly, bi-monthly or on a monthly basis. Mental health services treat common problems like trauma, depression, anxiety, grief and more severe and persistent problems like schizophrenia or bipolar (manic-depressive) disorders.  Intensive outpatient services for individuals with co-occurring mental health and addiction problems are available in Huntington and Charleston. Each treatment plan is designed to address individual needs. Prestera Center services help improve recovery supports and quality of life for individuals who suffer from the disease of addiction or who are using alcohol and/or other drugs. Services focus on making measurable improvements in maintaining a healthy lifestyle through professional counseling services, psychiatric services, recovery coaching, and recovery support.

Families may or may not be involved in treatment services, depending on the preferences of the person served.
