At Rio Vista Behavioral Health, we believe in partnering with our patients, their families, other providers, and community organizations to provide acute psychiatric care that meets the stabilization and recovery needs of every patient. We achieve this objective through our dedication to quality, evidence-based interventions and our commitment to compassionate care.

A Comprehensive Approach

Patient-centered psychiatric care

Patients come to Rio Vista Behavioral Health seeking care for mental health concerns of many kinds. Some individuals seek our support when their needs become too severe for a traditional outpatient setting, while others may not have any prior experience with psychiatric care. Regardless of your history, know that our staff takes a patient-centered approach in all that we do. This means that we view each person as more than just the sum of their symptoms, and as an individual who is worthy of dignity and respect. During your time in our program, we’ll work collaboratively with you to help you get your symptoms under control and make strides toward a more balanced life.

Some patients who are struggling with mental health concerns may also be facing a secondary condition of chemical dependency. Our approach is founded on the belief that overcoming addictions to harmful substances is a critical first step on the journey to recovery, and we address these concerns in tandem with primary psychiatric care. While our admissions criteria necessitate a primary mental health disorder diagnosis for each patient, our team is skilled at offering support to individuals who are facing a secondary substance use disorder.

By engaging with the residential program at Rio Vista Behavioral Health, you or a loved one can learn the healthy coping tools needed to enjoy a sustained recovery. We’ll work together to assist you in regaining control of your health and wellbeing so that you can return to your daily life with a renewed sense of hope.
