Service Overview

The Wellness Recovery Center is a 16 bed, residential crisis stabilization program for adults (ages 18+) who are experiencing a mental health crisis. The program lasts up to 14 days and the primary purpose is to get a person who is in a crisis help so they can avoid psychiatric hospitalization and remain in the community. Our onsite staff includes nurses, therapists, case managers, and psychiatrists who provide person-centered and recovery-based support and problem-solving in a safe and comfortable environment that promotes healing and fosters community.

This 24 hour/7 day-per-week program offers individual and group counseling to build and practice effective coping skills, like those related to personal safety, mental health crisis recovery, and understanding the influence of substance use on mental health. Treatment includes group therapies such as Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), which teaches skills such as mindfulness, emotional regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness, as well as movement, mindfulness, and skills-based groups.

In order to support our clients’ medical needs, the Wellness Recovery Center has partnered with Central Valley Health System (CVHS) and Genoa pharmacy.  In addition to an initial assessment by one of our psychiatrists, there is also a brief telehealth intake session with the medical team at CVHS who will support your non-psychiatric medications and established medical needs.  They will also be available to manage any new issues that arise during your stay.  CVHS accepts all major insurances and has a sliding scale for those without insurance, as well as those with insurance who qualify.

To access Wellness Recovery Center, please call the Region Ten 24-Hour Crisis Number at (434) 972-1800 and ask to speak to Emergency Services. The Emergency Services team will schedule an appointment to screen you for admission to the Wellness Recovery Center. Medicaid is accepted. Wellness Recovery Center does not accept Medicare or private insurance, with the exception of some private Anthem plans. Those individuals with private Anthem are encouraged to contact their insurance company directly to get information about any co-pays or deductibles that might be applicable to a stay at the Wellness Recovery Center.  A sliding fee schedule and payment plans are available for those who opt to self-pay.  The Wellness Recovery Center strives to make itself available to everyone in the community, regardless of means or income.

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.
