Premier Behavioral Health Center & Program for Partial Hospitalization Treatment for Adults in Fort Smith, Arkansas

Valley Behavioral Health helps individuals struggling with mental health and behavioral health disorders meet and exceed their treatment goals while building a strong foundation for long-term healing and recovery through a variety of programming options.

Our Partial Hospitalization Program

At Valley Behavioral Health System, we are pleased to offer many levels of care to meet the needs of our patients. Therefore, when you come to our treatment center in Barling, Arkansas, you can be sure that you will have the resources you need to become well again.

In addition to our quality inpatient care, we proudly offer an adult partial hospitalization program (PHP) for men and women ages 18 and older. This rehab program can be accessed following the completion of our inpatient services, or it can be where you start your healing journey.

Our adult PHP is designed to be less restrictive than inpatient care as it allows you to return home in the evenings. If you require support to manage the symptoms of the following disorders, our adult PHP may be the right program for you:

  • Anxiety disorders
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Major depressive disorder
  • Schizophrenia

Features of Our Partial Hospitalization Program

Our adult partial hospitalization program is offered five hours a day, five days a week. Our staff will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan that meets your needs and includes a blend of the following therapeutic services:

Group therapy

Group therapy is the main method of care used in our adult PHP. You may partake in process groups, psychoeducational groups, and skill-building groups, to name a few. We provide this type of therapy so that you can benefit from the support and encouragement of your peers in a safe setting.

Individual therapy

Individual therapy allows you to work one-on-one with a member of our staff so that you can discuss your feelings and emotions in a confidential atmosphere. Additionally, during individual therapy sessions, you can set personal goals that can help you achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Depending on your needs, these sessions can be included in your treatment plan on an as-needed basis.

Family therapy

Our adult PHP features family therapy sessions when needed. While in these sessions, a member of our staff will work with you and your loved ones to help you all gain a better understanding of your mental illness. These sessions can also assist your loved ones in learning the best ways to support you while you are in treatment.

Medication management services

If medication is necessary to help you manage symptoms of a mental illness, you can meet with a psychiatrist for medication management services each week. Additionally, while you are in our adult PHP, you will be able to meet with a psychiatric nurse each day to make sure that you are responding well to your medication regimen.

The services available within our rehab program incorporate cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). These evidence-based treatment modalities can help you learn how to make the changes needed to manage the symptoms of mental illness.
