Behavioral Health Services


Emory Valley Center provides individualized and specialized Behavioral Health services to people dually diagnosed with an intellectual and developmental disability and/or a mental health condition.  Treatment is provided for adults 18 and older, by trained Behavioral Health practitioners utilizing a strengths-based, trauma informed, and biopsychosocial approach.

Psychosocial Rehabilitation Program (PSR):  The focus of the program is to provide a supportive environment for those who are dually diagnosed to learn daily life skills, social skills, and to increase independence.  Individuals can participate in the group until they feel they have made progress toward their individual goals.  Some topics included are:

  • Community Safety
  • Psychoeducation
  • Personal Finance
  • Nutrition and Meal Preparation
  • Vocational Development



Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) Group – this group therapy (typically six individuals) format will offer topics that may include but are not limited to:

  • Grief
  • Traumatic Exposure
  • Getting Along With Housemates
  • Community Socialization
  • Coping Skills and Emotional Regulation




Outpatient Therapy (OP):  OP is an individual format that can help people gain new skills for dealing with difficult situations, meeting goals, and making difficult decisions in a healthy way. Families, caregivers, and supports may be included to address individual needs.  Topics explored in outpatient therapy include:

  • Anger
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Family or Relationship Issues
  • Sexuality


Care Coordination:  In order to provide continuity of care to those served in the Behavioral Health Program, practitioners participate in weekly treatment team meetings. The goal of care coordination is to integrate the unique mental health, social, psychiatric, and medical needs of each individual.
