Behavioral Health

Not all diseases are physical. Mental and emotional issues can severely affect all aspects of your life and can be just as debilitating as a physical disease. Vidant Health has behavioral health experts to help tackle issues like depression, anxiety, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and personality and mood disorders.

We recognize that every patient comes to us with a different set of problems. That's why we don't work from a standard treatment plan. After carefully examining your needs, we develop a highly personalized treatment plan to get you back to a happy place.

Under the guidance of a physician and licensed therapists, we help manage your medications, provide family support and education and refer you to other services that may be of benefit to you. Depending on your specific condition and location, your treatment may include:

  • Individual, group and family sessions
  • Exercise, wellness and relaxation therapy
  • Community re-entry outings
  • Animal-assisted therapy

In addition to our skilled and compassionate outpatient care offered across the region, special inpatient units are available at Vidant Beaufort Hospital, Vidant Medical Center and Vidant Roanoke-Chowan Hospital. Vidant Beaufort Hospital also operates six adult and child outpatient clinics in the towns of Washington, Williamston, Plymouth, Columbia, Swan Quarter and Ocracoke. 

For senior adults who are having behavioral problems, special geropsychiatric programs are available at Vidant Medical Center and Vidant Roanoke-Chowan Hospital.
