The excessive use of drugs or alcohol can easily become a problem that affects every aspect of our lives, even impacting our relationships. When enough is enough, it’s time to get help.

The good news is that substance use disorder is treatable when someone is ready to accept help and willing to work for it. At RiverValley, we offer several ways for individuals to find, maintain, and enhance their lives in recovery. Recovery is possible, and we’re here to help.

RiverValley’s Children’s Hospital (RVBH-H) is a not-for-profit psychiatric hospital located in Owensboro, KY, designed to provide specialty inpatient services for children and teens ages 5-17. Once they’re admitted, patients receive multiple services to diagnose, treat, and stabilize mental or behavioral health issues in a safe, structured environment while continuing with one-on-one and group counseling, recreational therapy, and medication management during their stay. RVBH-H also houses its own accredited school, gym, and extensive activity areas for recreation.

Acute Hospitalization

RiverValley’s acute care services cater to youth ages 3-18 as a short-term crisis stabilization center. Hospitalization allows qualified staff members the ability to formulate a customized treatment plan for youth who may be a harm to themselves or others around them.
