Behavioral health care helps improve your moods, thoughts, behaviors, emotions, and more using highly effective methods. 

Taking certain medications to treat an addiction reduces withdrawal symptoms and cravings for opioids or other harmful substances.

How does my provider diagnose behavioral health conditions?

Your specialist meets with you virtually or in-person to evaluate your physical and mental health. They review your medications, symptoms, lifestyle habits, medical history, and more. Your provider completes a psychiatric evaluation by asking questions about your moods, emotions, and behaviors before personalizing your treatment plan. 

How are behavioral health disorders treated?

Davidson River Recovery offers the following treatments for common behavioral health challenges:

Lifestyle change counseling

A specialist counsels you about making lifestyle changes to live a healthier life, overcome addiction, improve your physical health, and optimize mental wellness.


Psychotherapy, commonly referred to as talk therapy, includes cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and other therapies that alter thoughts and behaviors, break addiction, and allow you to live your best life.

Sublocade® treatment

Sublocade, which contains extended-release buprenorphine, is an injection that helps you overcome opioid addiction by reducing cravings and withdrawal symptoms.  

Suboxone® management

Suboxone management uses a sublingual film containing buprenorphine and naloxone. Like Sublocade, Suboxone treats opioid dependency by lessening withdrawal symptoms and cravings. You might first try this treatment before Sublocade injections.

Other medications

Other medicines help reduce symptoms of ADHD, OCD, depression, anxiety, PTSD, or other mental health disorders that affect behavior. Davidson River Recovery can help simplify the process of receiving the most appropriate medicines.
