Letter From The CEO

We are living in a unique time; one of unprecedented awareness and desire for self-actualization.  People like you and I, from all walks of life, desire change.  We desire to be our best selves and to find enjoyment in our lives. This desire and need for change can come in many forms, here at MBH we think that we offer one of most comprehensive and clear paths to that change.  

Throughout my life – both as a chaplain and as a CEO in the field of addiction treatment and behavioral health – I have seen this desire for change as a through-line that connects us to one another. Therefore, I have made it my life’s work to find new and innovative ways for us to discover this change and in turn, feel this connection to ourselves, our loved ones and our community. 

Our team is chosen thoughtfully, with our core purpose in mind. Staff at Montare believe that they have found their calling in providing therapeutic healing, with a focus on your success and prosperity.  

I have also found that connection is key to continued healing and change. Therefore, at Montare, we have a robust Alumni program. Our Alumni Coordinator connects with you once you enter our doors and follows you through your journey not just in our care but once you leave. Montare means to ascend, awaken and we make sure this ascension continues after you pass through our doors. 

We make a commitment to you here at Montare Behavioral Health. From your first contact with our staff to your continued journey after our time together; we will always be mindful of your path to change and find ways to make that change unique and long-lasting.  

Sincerely,

JD Kalmenson
