A Message from our CEO

“Creating hope, restoring dreams, and building futures”

It’s a slogan that describes our mission, vision, and passion at Laurel Oaks Behavioral Health Center. Our patients and their families or guardians come to us needing the special help they have been unable to find, as well as needing a renewed vision of their future where their dreams can come true.

It is our calling to provide high-quality treatment services within a safe, therapeutic environment so that these dreams can be realized and our patients can reach their full potential.

We rise to the challenge of treating patients with complicated problems and limited placement options. Our programs succeed where others have failed because we understand that learning new strategies to cope with problems can be difficult and even frightening. At Laurel Oaks Behavioral Health Center, we support each patient through the most challenging stages of treatment.

We are honored to be helping those whose life experiences have brought them to us while in need of the special help we provide. I stay personally involved in all aspects of the operation of this facility, and I invite you to come to me directly if I can be of any help during your experience with Laurel Oaks Behavioral Health Center.

Derek Johnson, CEO
