Burrell Behavioral Health – Burrell Park Facility

ABOUT BURRELL PARK FACILITY

Private nonprofit Burrell Behavioral Health operates numerous mental and behavioral health facilities in Missouri. Burrell Park Facility is one of its five substance abuse treatment centers in Springfield and Branson. Adolescent treatment is available at some centers in the network, although it’s not clear whether that includes Burrell Park. This center does, however, offer outpatient treatment for adults struggling with substance use and co-occurring disorders. Social detox is available on-site.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

According to the facility’s website, staff are trained in 12-step implementation as well as evidence-based practices and trauma-informed care. Treatments include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and motivational interviewing (MI).

Other treatment modalities include individual and group counseling, family therapy, medication-assisted treatment via Vivitrol and Suboxone, and educational groups. During treatment, residents cover topics including relapse prevention, aftercare support and education, anger management, trauma, and codependency.

As well as coaching clients in relapse prevention and aftercare strategies, Burrell Park Facility often refers graduating clients to sources of community support, including medical or further treatment services.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

According to the facility’s website, Burrell Behavioral Health’s staff include physicians, clinical psychologists, social workers, and licensed professional counselors — though it’s not clear who works at the Burrell Park Facility.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

At the time of this writing, Best-rehabs.com has received four reviews from alumni. It’s worth noting that all four attended while the center was called Sigma, which was later taken over by a company called Clarity, which in turn merged with Burrell Behavioral Health in 2013.

All four alumni gave mostly positive feedback. Three alumni recommended Burrell Park with an average four out of five stars, rating it 4.3 stars in staff’s level of experience and training, 3.7 stars in cleanliness, and three stars in holistic treatment offerings. Despite the organization’s emphasis on dual diagnosis, not all alumni were satisfied by the provisions for co-occurring disorders; one gave just three stars, though the other two polled in this category gave four- and five-star ratings.

One anonymous client said that although there was “not much time for one on one,” they “really enjoyed” treatment. Alum Claire wrote: “Lots of tools to learn to deal with triggers. To many hours sitting needed more activities.”

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

Loved ones gave mixed reports. Five loved ones recommended Burrell Park with an average 3.8 out of five stars to date, rating the facility 3.4 stars in family participation, 3.4 stars in connectivity and visitor policy, and three stars in holistic treatment offerings. Several of the five total reviewers praised the family involvement, as one respondent wrote: “The family participation in discussions was great.”

Yet three loved ones questioned the overall treatment effectiveness, with all five rating Burrell Park an average 3.3 stars in that category. One anonymous loved one wrote: “It is a great facility but without proper follow up it has many return patients.” Another added: “Was a waste of time for my ex. Didn't help him at all.”

FINANCING

According to the facility’s website, it seems that the client’s counselor determines whether or not insurance is accepted, though the site notes that most counselors accept major health insurances, Medicare, and Medicaid. Eight reviewers polled by Best-rehabs.com on affordability at the time of this writing gave an average of 3.5 out of five stars.

    The family participation in discussions was great. We went through the program to the end but I don't think it gave the results we needed.

  • I aspiritated about 12 hours before I checked in. I layed down in my room and quit breathing. They made their rounds 15 min later and found me and began CPR until paramedics got there. they took me to er room got me stable and then I spent the next 2 weeks on ventilator in a coma. If it was not for very capable employees at sigma house I would not be alive today. I've put what learned there to use in my life and I'm very happy now, and very happy that I know now that it's not just a thing called"a higher power". it's the lord up above and I am very thankful that he is there every step in my life's journey.
