Addiction

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 to help you get back to sobriety and peace.

Here are a few of our services:

RVBH Hospital Outpatient Clinic

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.

Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility (PRTF)

RiverValley also offers a smaller residential facility designed specifically for boys 12-17 who are experiencing mental health issues that don’t require hospitalization. Located in Owensboro, this 9-bed facility provides a nurturing environment with all the feels of home while the client receives care. The goal of PRTF is to help the child achieve their full potential for emotional well-being, see positive growth, and become active in the community again.

Residential Chemical Dependency (RCD) Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

Sometimes overcoming addiction takes a higher level of care than routine outpatient services can provide. For those cases, RiverValley offers a residential component for men with a substance use disorder. The RCD-IOP facility has all the feels of home with space for up to 14 men in recovery and provides 20-hours a week of activities designed to ensure sober living and prevent relapse.

The Amethyst Center

Sometimes overcoming addiction takes a higher level of care than routine outpatient services can provide. For those cases, RiverValley offers a residential component for women with a substance use disorder. This facility has all the feels of home with space for 16 women in recovery and 6 infants born to pregnant women in the program. RCD-IOP provides 20-hours a week of activities designed to ensure sober living and prevent relapse.

Outpatient Substance Abuse Services

For individuals with substance use issues, RiverValley conveniently offers both individual and group outpatient counseling sessions. With offices in most counties in our region, you can find the recovery support you need close to home.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Our Medication-Assisted Treatment program utilizes medications in combination with intensive inpatient and outpatient therapies, to provide a person-centered approach to the treatment of substance use disorders. Recovery is possible, and our team is here to help.
