Behavioral Health Program
Serving Mill Creek and Elkins, West Virginia
Valley Health Care continues to expand and implement programs to meet the needs of the community. Our Behavioral Health Department is one of the programs that is currently making changes to better serve the area in and around Elkins and Mill Creek, WV, with quality mental health services.
Integrated Medical and Behavioral Health Care in Rural WV
Behavioral Health Care is often difficult to find in rural areas. One of the solutions to this problem is the development of integrated care. Integrated care is the coordination of medical care and behavioral health care. Integrating mental health and primary care services produces more positive outcomes and offers the most effective approach to caring for people with multiple healthcare needs. When your medical provider works in conjunction with your behavioral health provider, success rates are greatly improved.
Counseling, Psychologist, and Case Manager Services in Elkins & Mill Creek
The Behavioral Health Program currently has two full-time licensed counselors and a full-time psychologist, along with two full-time case managers. Services that are currently being offered are individual, family, and relationship counseling for children and adults. We treat a variety of issues including ADD/ADHD, Grief, Trauma, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Depression, Anxiety, Stress Management, Anger Management, and Mood Disorders.
Vivitrol Opioid and Alcoholism Substance Abuse Treatment
In addition, Valley Health Care also offers Substance Abuse treatment through the Vivitrol Program, which is designed to help those who suffer from opioid addiction or alcoholism. Valley Health Care will be advancing this integrative approach over the next several months, not only at both clinic sites, but by also adding additional substance abuse services and more mental health services at our school based health clinics.
Services are available at both our Elkins and Mill Creek locations with day and evening appointments.
