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:

Zero Tolerance Program

Our Zero Tolerance Program serves youth under the age of twenty-one (21) years of age who have incurred an alcohol violation with intensive prevention education.

Participants are referred by the court system and are screened to ensure they meet program criteria.

Crisis & Information Line

RiverValley offers a free and anonymous call line for individuals in any type of crisis. This line can also be accessed via text and chat through RVBH’s web portal and is staffed around the clock with trained crisis call technicians to promptly address client needs.

Crisis Stabilization Unit (CSU)

CSU is an 8-bed residential facility in Owensboro that serves as an alternative to hospitalization for those experiencing a mental health crisis. Specifically for adults 18 and over, this treatment program operates a highly-structured program 24/7 in a home-like residence in the community. Only individuals with no serious medical complications and not requiring 24-hour nursing care are eligible.

Regional Prevention Center (RPC)

The Regional Prevention Center (RPC) serves coalitions and Kentucky Agency for Substance Abuse Policy (KY-ASAP) Boards in RiverValley Behavioral Health’s seven-county region to effectively address substance misuse prevention. We utilize the strategies of the Center For Substance Abuse Prevention and the Seven Strategies for Community Change from Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA).

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.

Outpatient Mental Health

Outpatient simply refers to receiving treatment without being admitted into a hospital, usually within a clinic or office setting. To better serve our community, RiverValley has offices in almost every county in our region so we can offer counseling, evaluation, and a variety of services for all ages and issues close to home.
