This assessment and treatment program is provided for adult and youth who have been assessed to have substance abuse problems that can be addressed in this setting. Services are provided in the BVBH offices. Sessions are typically 60 minutes and are provided 1-2 times per week over a several week/month period of time (or longer as needed). As progress occurs, sessions become less frequent.
This group focused program is provided to adult clients (19 and older) who require a higher level of care than outpatient treatment for their substance abuse needs. Clients who are involved in this program have been assessed and require a more structured treatment approach to maintain sobriety and abstinence goals, but do not require residential treatment. IOP meets three times a week for ten hours, typically over a six week period.
This program is offered to adult clients (19 and older) who have recently completed treatment in the IOP, residential setting or require treatment in a group based environment. This treatment group occurs on a weekly basis.
The YAP is a school-based (K-12) intervention service that is coordinated with a school SCIP Team (or similar entity). This school team is able to help identify children who may be experiencing difficulties related to behavioral health issues. With parental consent, the child may be referred to the YAP counselor who will then meet with the child and family members to process the current concerns. An intervention may lead to the resolution of the identified concerns or may result in a referral to other services. The YAP is offered in several school systems.
Consultation services make available the behavioral healthcare expertise of BVBH. Professional assistance is given to agencies and/or individual providers who have questions or concerns about their clients' behavioral functioning.

There are two different age groups, 18 and under and 19 or older.

Blue Valley Behavioral Health (BVBH) is one of the leading behavioral health telehealth providers in Nebraska. Telehealth is when treatment services are provided over the internet (meeting Federally approved internet confidentiality and security standards) and the provider and client are in two different office sites. Both are able to see and communicate with each other over a monitor/screen and the session proceeds as if they were in the same room with one another. BVBH has been able to integrate telehealth with several of their outpatient services (Mental Health/Substance Abuse Therapy, Substance Abuse Evaluations, and Medication Management) and can be provided in any of their 12 office locations in Southeast Nebraska. Adults and children, along with individuals and families can use telehealth in an effective way. BVBH applies certain tested procedures to ensure the telehealth experience is successful for both the client and provider. It has been through the use of this progressive and effective use of telecommunication that people are able to access treatment services faster, have less time to wait for their initial and ongoing appointments and attain services that may have once been unavailable to them. Each BVBH office is set up for the use of telehealth and is provided on a regular basis. Please contact your local office for further information.
