Mental health is just as important as physical health, encompassing a person's emotional, psychological and social well-being. With the right diagnosis, many disorders and conditions can be treated.

Outpatient behavioral health practices

We offer outpatient services to give you access to behavioral health programs designed to help people with busy lives and schedules. These allow you to maintain your routine schedule, in general, while getting the care you need on a more flexible timeline.

You might use outpatient services if you are transitioning in to or out of an inpatient program. You might also participate in an outpatient mental health program if you and your doctor determine this level of care will be most useful to you for another reason.

Visit our mental health and academic medicine location located at 1906 Braeburn Dr., in Salem to learn about our outpatient program. To access our services, please discuss your healthcare needs with your primary care physician and ask for a referral to one of our healthcare specialists.

Inpatient behavioral health programs

Through our affiliation with LewisGale Regional Health System, some of our psychiatrists and mental health professionals treat patients on an inpatient basis. We deliver individualized treatment strategies for patients with acute emotional health stressors and symptoms that cannot be safely and adequately managed on an outpatient basis.

Learn more about the inpatient mental health services offered at each facility.

Our inpatient services are available through a referral from your primary care provider or a specialist providing care during your hospital stay or emergency room visit.

Intensive outpatient program

As part of LewisGale Physicians, our patients also have access to an intensive outpatient program when a higher level of service is needed. This treatment program is sometimes recommended for patients after being discharged from our inpatient program and for others in need of a more intensive treatment program for addictions, depression, eating disorders or other dependencies that do not require round-the-clock supervision.
