Do I have to have a referral from a clinic or Doctor to receive treatment?

Although we work closely with Primary Care Physicians, Clinics, Hospitals, Urgent Care Facilities, EAP Programs, and many other entities that would submit a referral for services, you are not required to have a referral in order to seek the help that you need. Our Patient Services Department is open 24/7 to offer free assessments to all those who are in need of care.

Do You Accept Insurance?

We accept most insurance carriers as well as offer rates for cash pay options. We work closely with the County of Kern, local Physicians, Clinics, Schools, EAP programs, and self-referring individuals in order to help them through the assessment process. After assessment, Bakersfield Behavioral Healthcare Hospital will work closely with each individual in order to determine which program is the best fit for them.

What is the Typical Length of Stay?

Just as every person is unique, each treatment plan for a person is unique and therefore the length of stay is customized to their needs.

Although the path that each of us take in life may look different, we are all faced with similar concerns and struggles. Bakersfield Behavioral Healthcare Hospital is here to help our community navigate their own path and assist them in obtaining the tools needed to overcome their obstacles and walk side by side with them down their road to wellness
