Service Overview

Important Update as of August 10, 2022: 

Due to the ongoing nationwide healthcare workforce crisis, which has greatly impacted Region Ten staffing, all admissions to the Wellness Recovery Center will be paused until programming can safely and responsibly be re-opened.

At this time the target date for reopening WRC will be January 2023.

Current WRC staff are being redeployed to fortify Emergency Services and other 24/7 programming across the agency to safely and adequately provide Code of Virginia mandated services.

Region Ten is still scheduling consumers for crisis screenings and providing referrals to other CSUs such as Arbor House and Sunshine Lady House. There may be crisis counseling options in the future, depending on capacity, so please check back with Emergency Services staff and/or let ES staff know if you are interested in this service.

Most people we treat live in the community with chronic mental health conditions like depression, anxiety, and trauma.  However, due to life circumstances or a simple worsening of symptoms, they lose the ability to function effectively and/or are at increasing risk of harming themselves or others.  We also treat those experiencing their first mental health emergency.
