Integrating primary and behavioral health care to help our patients improve their quality of life.
Behavioral Health Services
Meet Our Behavioral Health Providers
As a patient-centered medical home, our providers understand that physical health and emotional health go hand in hand. Our behavioral health and medical providers work in tandem with our patients to help them address and overcome chronic health conditions, anxiety, depression, life changes, relationship issues and grief and loss.
Wood River Health offers the following groups and support systems to help improve our patients' quality of life:
Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) Program
Wood River Health's MAT Program is open to current patients and is one of the safest and most effective options available for individuals living with Substance Use Disorders. MAT is an evidence-based method of treatment that provides individuals with the tools they need to manage their substance uses. The cost of MAT is covered by Medicaid and by most private insurance companies.
Group Therapy and Support for Women Living with Substance Use Disorders
This group meets weekly and is currently open to new patients. During one-hour sessions, participants have the opportunity to participate in talk therapy, receive relapse prevention tools and get support in a compassionate, confidential environment.
Marigold Health Program
A free, anonymous social network where people with mental health and substance use conditions support each other. We partnered with Marigold to help people with substance use or mental health challenges build their recovery networks. Marigold Health provides peer support, anonymous text-based groups and more. Participants have 1:1 access to a peer specialist via phone, text, or video. Participants and peer specialists collaborate to determine the type of supports needed and the best next steps. Participants set their own goals and pace. There is no cost to participate.
Peer Support Services
Peer support workers are people who have been successful in the recovery process who help others experiencing similar situations. Through shared understanding, respect, and mutual empowerment, peer support workers help people become and stay engaged in the recovery process and reduce the likelihood of relapse. Peer support services can effectively extend the reach of treatment beyond the clinical setting into the everyday environment of those seeking a successful, sustained recovery process.
Tobacco Cessation Program
The Tobacco Cessation Program is open to current patients age 16 and above seeking support to live a tobacco free lifestyle. Program participants receive support, behavioral health strategies, medication recommendations (with support from your primary care provider) on how to live a tobacco free life.
