This is a MeetUp to host all the free talks, presentations, groups, and discussions, hosted by Alternatives Behavioral Health, towards forming a community of people who are interested in alternatives to traditional approaches to mental health and performance.

Topics range from brain health to nutrition to lifestyle management.

All our talks are free, and weekly group meetings are either free or very low cost.

Hosts: Talks and weekly group meetings will be hosted by presenters from the surrounding research, education, and clinical communities as well as from employees of Alternatives. Interested presenters are encouraged to contact us. Alternatives Brain Institute staff will present on brain health in ADHD, Aging, and Peak Performance, and Alternatives Treatment staff will lead discussions on the tricky issues of substance use and abuse.
