Behavioral Health

One in four Americans may experience depression, anxiety or another mental health issue at some point during their lives that can be helped with proper treatment.

Individuals who are experiencing a behavioral health crisis should contact their local crisis center, go to an emergency room for evaluation, contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or text #4HOPE to 741-741.

If you suffer from depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder or any other type of mental health condition, you may feel alone and overwhelmed. Adena Behavioral Health is here to help. Our team of experts includes psychiatrists, licensed social workers, a recreation therapist and skilled nurses. Our care team works closely with patients and their support systems to develop a plan of care specific to each patient’s needs. Proper diagnosis and carefully developed and monitored treatment can help you not only cope, but build a fulfilling life with your family, job and community.

Adena focuses on providing behavioral health treatment with dignity, compassion and respect. Whether adult or pediatric patients, we listen to your issues and work diligently to provide caring treatment and positive support. Adena Health System is a leading provider of behavioral health treatment in south central and southern Ohio, offering both inpatient and outpatient behavioral health services. 

  • Inpatient Behavioral Health Treatment: The inpatient behavioral health unit at Adena Regional Medical Center provides comprehensive treatment in a structured setting for adults ages 18 and over who have a mental health diagnosis.
  • Outpatient Behavioral Health Treatment: The Adena Counseling Center promotes a holistic approach to patient care, providing comprehensive outpatient services including medication management, psychological services and counseling for both children and adults.

At Adena, we’re taking extra precautionsto ensure a safe environment for all patients, visitors and staff. If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms, including fever or cough, please call our COVID-19 Hotlineat 740-542-SAFE (7233) and refrain from any in-office visits. 

Another way we work to keep patients safe is by offering Virtual Visits, using phone and/or video, to allow patients the option of consultation from their homes. While virtual visits are safe and convenient, they don’t always serve as a complete replacement for an in-office visit. Call our offices for guidance on what might work best for you.
