As part of developing the Stacie Mathewson Behavioral Health & Addiction Institute, Renown Behavioral Health recently moved into its newly remodeled space at 85 Kirman Ave. Consolidating the team members into one specialty location will help enhance access and coordination of care, and will prepare handoffs for patients receiving mental health and substance use disorder treatments.
This relocation is one of the first steps in the plan to establish the institute, which was made possible by a generous gift from Stacie and Charles Mathewson. Over the next five years, the Mathewsons will donate $6 million to Renown Health Foundation to establish this much-needed behavioral health and addiction institute in northern Nevada. These funds aim to decrease stigma and encourage more people to seek help.
Remodeling at the new location began this past spring. The first floor will house the intensive outpatient and partial hospital programs, which provide intensive treatment and more frequent clinical contact for patients who need a higher level of care. Ambulatory services will be located on the second floor. These include psychiatric medication evaluation and management; individual, group and couples therapy; psychological testing and pre-procedure evaluations.
If you would like additional information about existing programs and services, as well as how to make a referral, please contact Behavioral Health at 982-5318.
