Wellness Recovery Center
The Wellness Recovery Center (WRC) is a short-term residential crisis stabilization program for adults (ages 18+) who are experiencing a mental health crisis. The primary purpose of the program is to get a person who is in a crisis help so they can avoid psychiatric hospitalization and remain in the community. The WRC onsite staff includes nurses, therapists, case managers, peer recovery specialists, 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, mind-body, and skills-based groups.
In order to support a person’s medical needs, the Wellness Recovery Center has partnered with Central Valley Health System (CVHS) and Genoa pharmacy. In addition to an initial assessment by a Region Ten psychiatrist, there is also a brief telehealth intake session with the medical team at CVHS who will support non-psychiatric medications and established medical needs. They will also be available to manage any new issues that arise during the stay. CVHS accepts all major insurances and has a sliding scale for those without insurance, as well as those with insurance who qualify.

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.
