Through compassionate care and clinical excellence, we are dedicated to serving the behavioral health needs of our community.
We provide services to adults and youth experiencing mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), behavioral issues, poor impulse control, and thoughts of harming themselves or others.
Our substance use services provide treatment and illness management education—supporting the development of skills necessary to function in the community.
We begin with a comprehensive assessment of individual needs and strengths. Our treatment team of psychiatrists, nurses, therapists and counselors develop individualized, person-centered plans addressing the specific needs of individuals to assist them in meeting their recovery goals.
Mental health court groups are skills and counseling groups specifically for individuals enrolled in court-mandated treatment. These programs were established to provide effective alternatives to sentencing for nonviolent offenders and to assist individuals on a path to recovery. We also have programs for those in veterans court and family court.
Our Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) services promote sustained mental health recovery in the least restrictive environment for adults age 18 and over who have severe and persistent mental illness. ACT services are provided in the community–rather than a clinic–by a mental health team that includes experts in psychiatry, nursing, psychology, social work, substance use and vocational rehabilitation, as well as a certified peer specialist. The ACT team is available to individuals 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and multiple team members are familiar with each individual to ensure timely and continuous access to services. Family members and significant others can be included at the individual’s request.
Our Case Management services assist individuals with severe and persistent mental illness as well as those individuals struggling with mental illness combined with substance use issues (dually diagnosed). Adult Case Management consists of two different types of service: Case Management and Psychosocial Rehabilitation Individual.
Our Intensive Case Management services provides mental health treatment and supports that help individuals with severe mental illness achieve their recovery goals. Intensive Case Management services assist individuals in minimizing the negative effects of symptoms of mental health problems and addictive diseases that interfere with daily living, independent functioning and personal development.
Our Community Support Services are community-based services that promote mental health recovery and independence for people with persistent mental health challenges. Our Community Support Services staff can meet with an individual at home, or at a homeless shelter, a street environment, or other locations that provide adequate privacy and safety. Our staff have flexible hours making them available to individuals who might need help outside typical business hours. Our team is available to respond rapidly to early signs of relapse or crisis.
Group Counseling and Skills Training helps Individuals develop tools to achieve independent living through skills training. The topics addressed include coping, communication, social skills, empowerment, healthy living, and recovery/wellness.
Individual therapy at Highland Rivers Behavioral Health helps identify any barriers or ongoing concerns that hinder an individual from functioning in daily life. Family therapy is used to assist individuals in problem-solving skills that impact relationships with family members. Our sessions strive to improve communication and provide conflict resolution.
Our Peer Support Services provides a safe environment for individuals with mental health or substance abuse issues to meet and provide mutual support. The service offers structured activities that promote socialization, recovery and wellness, self-advocacy, development of natural supports, and community living skills. Peer Support Services help each individual develop and work toward achieving his or her specific personal recovery goals and live as independently as possible.
Permanent Supportive Housing is a limited program that provides a long-term housing option to homeless individuals (and their families) whose mental health, addictive disease, and/or an intellectual/ developmental disability has made it difficult to maintain/establish a permanent residence. The reduced rent ensures that an individual’s income is able to provide a home and is calculated at 30% of the individual’s adjusted gross income.
Our on-site pharmacy services are available through Genoa Healthcare.
Individuals living in recovery are able to work productively in their communities when matched with the right job and environment. Our Supported Employment team offers case management service to individuals seeking employment. Our services are delivered in the community and on job sites.
This important program enables individuals to succeed in finding and maintaining jobs, and it is open to anyone who wants to work—if you struggle with mental health challenges, have been fired from jobs, or used substances in the past. We can also help if you have been hospitalized for mental health or substance use, if you have a disability, are homeless, or have been in jail or prison.
