Treatment

We offer a variety of treatment options at Strawberry Hill, including:

  • Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), a medical treatment for severe depression or bipolar disorder that involves passing small electric currents through the brain to change brain chemistry.
  • Esketamine treatment, which involves administering a nasal spray for treatment-resistant depression. We are the first hospital in Kansas to offer this treatment.
  • Comprehensive addiction treatment for opioid use disorder, which includes the use of effective medications, such as methadone, suboxone, vivitrol and once-monthly Sublocade.
  • Specialty care for treatment-resistant depression, which includes transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). This treatment uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain.
  • Vagus nerve stimulation (VNS), a treatment that involves using a device to stimulate the vagnus nerve by delivering electrical impulses.

Our addiction services also include group therapy, substance abuse counseling and psychiatric care, including psychotherapy. A board-certified addiction medicine specialist will work with you to assess your needs and identify the treatment options that are right for you.
