Treatment Philosophy

  • We view every patient as a fellow human being in crisis, who is entitled to empathy, dignity, respect and the level of clinical excellence that each of us would want for ourselves and our loved ones.
  • We also see patients as being symptomatic of a dysfunctional system or family. The therapeutic approach of Arbour Hospital is to evaluate the patient at the center of his or her system and to make appropriate therapeutic interventions.
