ABOUT OWENSBORO HEALTH - BEHAVIORAL HEALTH CARE
Located in Owensboro, Ky., Owensboro Health Regional Hospital's behavioral health care department offers short-term inpatient and outpatient care for adults with behavioral issues including addiction to drugs and alcohol.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Owensboro Health treats individuals affected by a wide range of behavioral concerns including but not limited to the following: trauma, drug and alcohol addiction, familial and relationship challenges, neurocognitive disorders, anxiety, depression, and other mood disorders. Inpatient care is typically for patients experiencing a behavioral crisis.
Though treatment is usually short-term — with an average stay of three days— each client receives a personalized treatment plan consisting of therapy in both private and group settings, exercise, and medication management and prescription.
Clients may access treatment either through the hospital’s emergency department or as a referral from a doctor or therapist.
Multidisciplinary in nature, the hospital staff includes an experienced team of social workers, nurses and nurse practitioners, counselors, and therapists. Clients may also receive spiritual guidance and support from a hospital chaplain.
