RBHA provides a continuum of services to meet the needs of adults experiencing behavioral health issues in the City of Richmond and across the region. We understand that individuals and families may have multiple needs and co-occurring behavioral health challenges that require a comprehensive approach to treatment and support.
Across Virginia, hundreds of people die every year from drug overdoses – nearly 80% of those deaths involve prescription opioid drugs or heroin. There is hope. Treatment works and recovery is possible. Through case management and education, intensive outpatient treatment, office-based opioid treatment (OBOT), or intensive residential treatment, RBHA is prepared to assist individuals along their journey of recovery. RBHA utilizes the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) criteria to determine the best treatment placement for individuals with substance use and/or co-occurring mental health issues.

Office Based Opioid Treatment (OBOT)
RBHA offers individuals with opioid addiction the option of medication-assisted treatment via buprenorphine. In addition to medication, individuals receiving treatment in the OBOT Clinic receive individual and group counseling by clinicians and peer specialists, solution-focused brief interventions, care coordination, and monitoring of medication compliance via urine drug screens. In conjunction with OBOT services, clients are able to receive primary medical care services to address other physical health diagnoses. Clients also have the option of picking up medications from our contracted, in-house pharmacy.
Pregnant women receive priority treatment via suboxone (during their pregnancy).
RBHA is proud to employ many individuals with lived experience in the behavioral health domains. Peer support specialists are people who have been successful in the recovery process who help others experiencing similar situations. Through shared understanding, respect, and mutual empowerment, peer support workers help people become and stay engaged in the recovery process and reduce the likelihood of relapse. Peer support services can effectively extend the reach of treatment beyond the clinical setting into the everyday environment of those seeking a successful, sustained recovery process.
