ABOUT BEAUMONT BEHAVIORAL HEALTH

The facilities also offer specialized services for individuals struggling with opioid dependency. Treatment is only available on an outpatient basis during business hours, Monday through Friday. Walk-in appointments are available during the week on an urgent basis.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Treatment starts with an initial behavioral and psychiatric assessment, which are used to create an individualized treatment plan. Staff can coordinate care with other health care providers, on an as-needed basis. Treatment typically consists of individual and family therapy, skills building workshops, and medication management. Clients struggling with substance abuse-related concerns also learn coping skills and relapse prevention techniques. Couples counseling is also available.

Additionally, the Beaumont Behavioral Health provides medication-assisted treatment (MAT) utilizing buprenorphine, Subutex, and Suboxone, which helps manage opioid cravings and alleviate the severity of withdrawal. The facility is one of the 12.7% of Kentucky facilities to offer Suboxone. To help clients succeed in treatment, clients are strongly encouraged to also participate in 12-Step within the community while enrolled in the facility’s MAT program.

Reviews about Beaumont Behavioral Health

  • Treatment Effectiveness
  • Accommodations & Amenities
Beaumont Behavioral Health is run by a group of nurse practitioners who do not have the experience or education level of a psychiatrist. My nephew was diagnosed (previous to his experience with BBH) with Aspergers. He presented to these people with symptoms including oversleeping often, causing him to lose jobs, and spending too much of his spare time asleep. They prescribed him the incorrect medicine. When his mother called to try to get help, the staff could not schedule my nephew in until several weeks later, because they were too busy. My nephew's mother did not know how to handle the situation, i.e., whether or not it was safe to discontinue the drug. Ironically, although this facility could not find the time to correct this mistake they made, and insisted he wait two weeks for treatment, in an earlier situation when my nephew's mother called to reschedule an appointment, the staff informed her she would be charged for a visit even though she was calling in a timely manner to reschedule. These nurse practitioners are not doctors although they have the ability to prescribe medicine.
