Deerfield Behavioral Health, an affiliate of Journey Health System, provides positive changes in children’s and adults’ lives. We do this by offering a unique blend of diagnostic, therapeutic, and contract behavioral health services at several locations across Pennsylvania.



Deerfield Behavioral Health, Inc. was incorporated as a Pennsylvania non-profit company on July 15, 1991 (Entity number 2037013). At the time of incorporation its purpose was to provide behavioral health care network services including development of community based behavioral health service programs & continuums of care on behalf of its member-shareholders; provision of direct clinical services in collaboration with its member-shareholders; and provision of consulting and development services in the behavioral health field. Its bylaws required that all member-shareholders be designated as not-for-profit 510 (c)(3) tax-exempt organizations.

The original members were several hospitals in Western Pennsylvania who provided behavioral health inpatient and outpatient services as part of their offerings.  The bylaws were revised April 19, 2002 to allow affiliate members defined as “social service organizations providing behavioral health services, yet are not hospitals”.  At that time, Children’s Home of Bradford d/b/a Journey Health System and Stairways Behavioral Health (along with others) were granted membership status in the organization under the “social service” designation.  Affiliate members benefitted from the expertise of other affiliates and allowed for a united front when dealing with various issues confronting organizations that provided behavioral health services. Deerfield Behavioral Health provided direct services through the Deerfield Center for Addiction Treatment, employed clinicians including psychiatrists, psychologists, licensed social workers and other professionals, and engaged in consulting work with other entities that proved behavioral health services. 

Deerfield Behavioral Health of Warren became a 501©(3) not-for-profit Limited Liability Corporation in January 2021.  With this status, Deerfield Behavioral Health of Warren, continues to provide outpatient addictions treatment through the three licensed sites.  Additionally, the company employees various licensed clinicians who provide contract services to several different entities in Western and Central Pennsylvania.
