Alaska Baptist Family Services is now
Birchwood Behavioral Health

Our Services

Our services are structured with one primary goal in mind: To renew HOPE in the lives of our clients and their families by reducing the negative impacts of trauma and increasing their resiliencies.


Residential Programs

Our two residential programs, Hunter Cottage (for boys 8-13 years old) and Aspen Cottage (for girls 13-18 years old), are both located on our beautiful 20-acre campus in South Anchorage. Each cottage is designed to create a warm, home-like environment for our clients to feel safe and cared for. BBH does not practice seclusion or restraint with clients for any reason. Instead, we implement individualized, pro-active, strengths-based interventions to promote insight, accountability and achievement in the lives of our clients. Average program length ranges between 6-9 months.
