Carson Tahoe Behavioral Health Services (BHS), a department of Carson Tahoe Regional Healthcare, provides comprehensive inpatient & outpatient mental health services to adults and aging adults dealing with mental health and substance abuse issues. Using a multidisciplinary approach, BHS offers compassionate cost-effective treatment options for seniors, adults, and adolescents close to home.

Services available through BHS include:

  • Individual and Group Counseling
  • Medical model detox services
  • Inpatient and Outpatient Psychiatric Services
  • Psychological testing
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
  • Substance abuse treatment, including 14 day Addictive Disorders rehabilitation
  • Support groups

The Behavioral Health team includes psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, marriage and family therapists, chemical dependency counselors and psychiatric nurses. This team uses a holistic approach to treatment and recognizes the importance of mind, body and spirit in overall health. They work closely with others involved with the patient’s treatment, such as referring clinicians, family, friends and others who comprise the patient’s support system.

Behavioral Health Outreach Programs

  • Assertive Community Treatment (ACT)
  • First Episode Psychosis (FEP)
  • School Suicide Risk Assessment
  • Community education around mental health awareness and suicide

Carson Tahoe Health's two innovative behavioral health outreach programs (ACT and FEP)  focus on providing individuals in crisis the care they need through community-based treatment. Community-based treatments keep individuals connected to services and treatments in their own community, but transportation can still be a barrier for many. Through the Robert Z. Hawkins Foundation vehicle donation, trained staff will now be able to assist these individuals in accessing important mental health resources. Carson Tahoe will also use the vehicle for its community mental health education program, which provides suicide-risk assessments in local schools.

Referrals & Assessments

Patients are accepted for inpatient treatment 24-hours a day. Confidential inpatient assessments and referrals are available free of charge, either by phone or in person, to determine appropriateness for programs. Referrals can be made from many sources, such as hospitals, physicians, mental health agencies, social service agencies, assisted living facilities, skilled nursing facilities, family, friends, and self-referrals. All inquiries are strictly confidential.

To get started, consider the following:

  • Assessment and Evaluation: Inquiries made to BHS are evaluated by an assessment counselor to develop the best plan of action for the individual. To request an inpatient assessment call (775) 445-7350.
  • For outpatient services call (775) 445-7756.
  • Information and Referral: If the individual is not appropriate for inpatient treatment they are referred to a source that will best address their needs.
