Visiting Hours and Information

We warmly welcome you to the Bryan Independence Center

Questions About Visiting a Loved One?

Call the Bryan Independence Center at 402-481-5268.

While your visits are helpful to your family member or friend, it's important that you help us keep all clients safe. 

  • You do not need to call in advance. Youth clients' visitors are limited to immediate family members; however, other visitors may attend if the parents of the youth client are willing to supervise the visit (such as the client's best friend)
  • Bryan Independence Center must be a safe drug-free environment
  • If staff believes a visitor is under the influence of alcohol or other drugs, the visitor will be asked to leave
  • If staff believes an intoxicated individual might require medical services, an assessment in the Emergency Department will be offered
  • If staff believes an intoxicated individual will be driving, the Lincoln Police Department will be notified
  • If you bring any item for your loved one, the item must be checked in at the nurse's station
