ABOUT VALLE VISTA HEALTH SYSTEM

Founded in 1983 and located in the southern Indianapolis suburb of Greenwood, Indiana, Valle Vista is a freestanding psychiatric hospital offering a range of treatments for children, adolescents, and adults.

The hospital’s chemical dependency programs consist of medical detox and acute inpatient care for adults and adolescents (aged 13 to 18), as well as an acute inpatient program for adults with co-occurring disorders, a residential program for girls aged 12 to 18, and outpatient services at a range of intensities.

Valle Vista is also one of just 13 Indiana facilities to offer an opioid treatment program, which includes medication-assisted treatment (MAT).

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Valle Vista believes that addiction is a treatable disease, and aims to help clients to understand and desire a healthy lifestyle, free of chemical dependency and other compulsive behaviors.

Treatment begins with a free 45-minute assessment, which is used to determine the most appropriate level of care. The intensity and duration of treatment are monitored and adjusted as clients progress through the treatment spectrum.

Reviews submitted to Rehabs.com indicate that treatment is strongly based on the 12 Steps. As a psychiatric hospital, the center is also well positioned to take care of the medical side of addiction and provides medication management. There's also an on-site pharmacy.

Clients participate in individual and group therapy and receive education about the nature of addiction and recovery. Under the center’s discharge planning services, all clients leave with an aftercare plan.
