UPDATE: APM Behavioral Health Centers have transitioned care from an in-person format to a telehealth format starting March 2020 and continuing until further notice. Transitioning to this form of treatment will allow our clients to receive care in a way that minimizes risk of spreading the coronavirus while still providing personalized care.
