ABOUT VALEO BEHAVIORAL HEALTH CARE

Located in Topeka, Kan., Valeo Behavioral Health Care provides residential and outpatient treatment to adults struggling with mental health disorders and co-occurring substance use disorders.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Valeo Behavioral Health Care's website indicates it utilizes evidence-based treatment modalities, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), the latter of which is used by 39.6 percent of treatment facilities in Kansas. Clients participate in individual and group counseling, and educational classes on the disease of addiction.

During residential treatment, clients are exposed to community-based self-help groups, such as the 12-Steps. Clients also receive employment education and skills training, while clinicians begin to form community reintegration plans.

When a client is discharged from the residential program, case managers may recommend that the clients attend the outpatient program to prevent relapse. If a client is eligible, Valeo may also be able to coordinate supportive and transitional housing, which is a service offered by 50.5 percent of treatment facilities in Kansas.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

Valeo Behavioral Health Care employs a team of approximately 360 staff, including doctors, nurses, psychiatrists, social workers, and licensed addiction counselors. To date, the seven individuals polled on the matter by Rehabs.com generally approved of the effectiveness of staff.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

The three former clients polled by Rehabs.com to date gave Valeo mixed feedback, indicating that while the treatment was effective, the food and exercise options were poor. "They have an excellent treatment program. the food was a downfall. they really helped me with my mental health treatment and my addiction," an anonymous alum wrote in a representative review.

Valeo also received mixed feedback on secondary sites, earning an average rating of 2.5 out of five stars based on 32 Google reviews[1] and a 3.9 out of five-star rating based on the opinions of 41 individuals on Facebook[2]. The most common complaint across both sites was difficulty getting an appointment.

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

The five loved ones surveyed by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing also gave Valeo generally positive feedback. While they indicated that the program was helpful to their loved ones, they also noted that there were not enough staff and that getting an appointment was difficult. "Its hard to get in to see a doctor. You have to call at 8am for an appointment that day," an anonymous loved one wrote in a representative review. "It has a great day program but the after care is lacking when it comes to appointments."

However, four loved ones polled on the matters generally appreciated the level of family participation, the staff, and indicated that they would recommend the facility to others.

Staff Experience and Training: 4.2/5
Would Recommend: 4/5
Family Participation: 3.8/5

Treatment costs are also offered on a sliding scale fee, which is a service provided by 67 percent of treatment facilities in Kansas.

Affordability: 4/5

Very professional and organized. Lots of treatment options such as day treatment, halfway houses, etc. Its hard to get in to see a doctor. You have to call at 8am for an appointment that day. Medical transportation requires a three day notice. It has a great day program but the after care is lacking when it comes to appointments. If you have your own transportation then it wont be an issue but if not, it if you dont, then it is a hassle.

Always accept walkins especially in an emergency situation was a sterngth, but they let them walk right back out the door...not supervised. Would prefer when a parent sends a child, regardless of age (under 21) that they keep them supervised and not allow them to leave until at least 3 days of treatment has occured.

Strengths: Helping patients learn how to get to know themselves again. Weaknesses: Preparing patients to live outside the facility. Not enough exercize. It was just a walk they their motions. The only thing I got out of it was I did learn a thing or two about myself.

Location was a strength. Ability to diagnose and have proper medication available was a downfall.
