Some behavioral health conditions respond best to a combination of therapy and medication management. After a BVBH mental health counselor has completed a mental health assessment, the individual will then be seen by one of BVBH’s Medication Management providers. These providers will then complete their own assessment and decide if psychiatric medication is appropriate and if so will prescribe according to the their client’s needs. Follow up medication management therapy appointments to monitor medication effects are scheduled at the recommendation of the provider. Our licensed staff may include APRNs ( Advanced Practice Registered Nurse) and Psychiatrists (MD). Appointments for the initial medication evaluation are made through self or family referral, referral by a therapist, or other providers. This service is available to both adults and youth. Medication Management services are typically available in the BVBH office or accessed via telehealth (office-based).
Please contact your nearest office for additional information or to schedule an appointment.
Blue Valley Behavioral Health (BVBH) is one of the leading behavioral health telehealth providers in Nebraska. Telehealth is treatment services that 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 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.
