At River Place Behavioral Health, we understand that mental illness is a complex, multi-faceted condition, and that no two patients are the same. That’s why we take a personalized approach to each and every person that walks through our doors. Depending on each patient’s specific needs and goals, we work together to build a personalized treatment plan that may consist of a combination of medication management services, individual therapy, group therapy, and family therapy.

Treatment at River Place doesn’t stop when you leave our doors. Following the completion of a stay in our care, every patient receives a detailed discharge plan. This plan will identify the professional referrals, community-based resources, and other supports that may be necessary to help the individual maintain and build upon the progress that he or she achieved while in our care.

""My mother went into this hospital out of her mind, and she came home today; Well. She was cognitive and told me how the staff took such great care of her. She said the meals were incredible and how she enjoyed the many activities. She has been in many Behavioral Facilities over the years, and this is the first one that ever kept us updated via phone and email. Mental Illness is real and I’m grateful and thankful for how you helped my Mom.""

""As a therapist with experience in addiction and mental health I highly recommend River Place Behavioral Health. The team is highly skilled in stabilization and patient care. I have had several experiences where I know I can trust the patient is in good hands and I can expect to receive regular communication. There are very few places I would trust the care of my own family member if the circumstances were necessary and River Place is one of them. The facility is comfortable, very clean and River Place does not just provide medical services, but offers art/therapy groups and staff genuinely cares.""
