Review by Rehabs.com Contributors


Rapid City Regional Hospital provides a comprehensive suite of medical services for the community of Rapid City, S.D. The Regional Behavioral Health Center, one of the hospital’s divisions, offers psychiatric care, including treatment for substance abuse. While treatment is provided on an inpatient basis, diagnostic interviewing and medication management are part of the center’s outpatient clinic.


According to its website, the center aims to provide holistic care that addresses each client’s mind, body, and spirit. Chemical dependency specialists conduct initial evaluations that help inform each patient’s individual care plan. Clients undergo diagnostic testing and participate in individual therapy, group counseling, family programming, occupational therapy, and recreational therapy. Pastoral counseling (from either the hospital’s clergy or the client’s preferred spiritual leader) is also available.


The hospital employs a multi-disciplinary team that is led by licensed, board-certified psychiatrists. Other staff members include psychiatric nurses, patient care technicians, social workers, occupational therapists, recreational therapists and chemical dependency specialists.


As treatment is administered in a hospital setting, clients can expect shared rooms and a clinical environment.


The three alumni polled by Rehabs.com had mostly good things to say about their treatment experiences. While Marlin described the center as a “very nice place,” another anonymous reviewer simply wrote “awesome” in their review. J.M. a four-star reviewer, provided some general advice as part of their commentary. “Gather facts on several choices of treatment ctrs available and the length of time is important,” they wrote.


M.R.K., the one loved one polled by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing, provided a glowing review and noted that treatment was covered by Medicare and supplemental insurance. “Very pleased with the professionalism, [knowledge] and abilities of staff,” they wrote.

However, the two loved ones who submitted reviews to HealthGrove shared drastically different experiences.[1] Both Darrell and Paul left one-star reviews and were critical of the center’s doctors. “The doc's are not very good,” Darrell wrote, citing issues including a too-early release time for his friend, as well as what he perceived as an uncaring attitude towards patients. Paul, who sought treatment for his daughter, was unable to get an accurate diagnosis. “She [threatened] to hurt herself [numerous] times and has tried overdosing before. But she is told she is ok,” he wrote.


According to the facility’s website, Medicare, Medicaid, and most insurance plans are accepted. Additionally, financial assistance is available to those who qualify.

Gather facts on several choices of treatment ctrs available and the length of time is important.Example-If you drank for 30 years, slim chances you can stop drinking and stay stopped for 30 days. Especially without aftercare.
