Safe, Non-judgmental Health Care

At Nine Circles, we believe that everyone has the right to be treated with respect, be safe, and have their health information be kept private. We strive to treat each client as an individual with respect to culture, customs, language and spiritual beliefs. Our team provides supportive and non-judgmental care and treatment, encouraging clients to be active in their own care by being informed and asking questions. We encourage our clients to tell us their concerns and share their ideas about programs or services. For more information, view our Client Rights and Responsibilities.
