Valley Health’s mission is to provide the highest quality recovery services to those seeking outpatient treatment and pursuing an improved quality of life. We support patients throughout all stages of their recovery process by using a holistic treatment team approach. The treatment team includes medical providers, therapy providers, Patient Advocates, and a Peer Recovery Support Specialist. We believe every person should be respected and treated with dignity and compassion. We value the possibilities of hope, honesty, and hard work.
Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is an evidence-based treatment that combines both medication and therapy to address substance use disorders.
Participants in these programs are prescribed maintenance therapy medication(s) that are FDA approved to treat opioid dependence or alcohol dependence, in combination with regularly scheduled professional therapy services and access to the other ancillary support services that we provide. Our providers assess each individual and determine the most appropriate care plan, including medication type, dosage, and frequency of services.
Valley Health also operates a Vivitrol program for opioid dependence at our 10th Street location. We partner with community agencies to provide therapy services. At our Highlawn health center, Valley Health partners with the WV Perinatal Partnership and other community organizations to provide comprehensive recovery support tailored to the unique needs of pregnant and postpartum women living with substance use disorder(s).
What to expect when beginning treatment
Potential participants must undergo a screening process designed to help the treatment team assess the needs of each individual. For more information regarding this process, please get in touch with our Hurricane or Highlawn health centers.
- All potential participants will be scheduled for a mental health assessment with a licensed behavioral health provider and, if applicable, an initial evaluation with a program physician or physician extender to discuss medication. The initial medical assessment will include a physical exam and laboratory screenings.
- Patients will meet with a Patient Advocate to discuss factors or challenges impacting their treatment, such as work schedule or transportation barriers. The Patient Advocate will work with the patient to identify solutions and refer to resources as needed.
- Once a treatment plan is determined, participants may be required to engage in a combination of weekly medication management and therapy appointments, including group and individual therapies. Some services offered may be conducted via telehealth if appropriate.
- Once stabilized, patients may be eligible to reduce the frequency of appointments that they are required to attend.
