Treatment and support to live healthy, rewarding lives.
Appropriate and timely care and attention for behavioral health disorders will provide hope for tomorrow and restore quality living. Services are targeted to help people live healthier lives in mind, body and overall health, and to assist with a variety of issues — everything from depression and anxiety to personality and mood disorders.
Behavioral Health Programs
In addition to convenient outpatient care across the region, specialized inpatient units are available at Vidant Medical Center, Vidant North Hospital and Vidant Roanoke-Chowan Hospital.
Vidant Behavioral Health provides outpatient behavioral health services and programs in multiple locations in our region. We offer individual, group and/or family sessions designed and recommended to meet your particular needs. We also offer an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) at Vidant Multispecialty Clinic – Tarboro (252-641-8246) as well as Structured Outpatient Programs at Vidant Bertie Hospital in Windsor (252-794-6637) and Vidant Chowan Hospital in Edenton (252-482-6347).
Vidant Behavioral Health provides care for depression and anxiety at selected Vidant Medical Group (VMG) clinics where both behavioral health and physical health care is provided by physicians, therapists and psychiatric consultants.
Animal-assisted therapy at VMC is used to enhance and complement the benefits of traditional therapy. Animals such as dogs and cats are incorporated into your treatment plan — a technique that has shown positive outcomes and improved emotional well-being in people who live with a variety of behavioral health conditions.
