In 2012 Shalom Center formed a Spanish-language task force of national experts to help Shalom Center form a Spanish-language treatment option that would meet the needs of those whose first language is Spanish. Because of our commitment to treatment on one’s first language, Shalom Center offers ASSESSMENT, PSYCHIATRIC SERVICES
INDIVIDUAL THERAPY, GROUP THERAPY, and EDUCATION in the Spanish language as well as English.
