CHI Health Immanuel, in north Omaha, is a full-service hospital run by CHI Health, a regional network that operates 15 healthcare facilities. Along with acute care medical services, CHI Health Immanuel provides crisis stabilization services, inpatient care, and outpatient programs for children, adolescents, adults, and seniors who are struggling with mental and behavioral health conditions, including substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. It is one of 86 private, nonprofit substance abuse treatment facilities in Nebraska.


Chemical dependency treatment draws on the 12-step model of recovery and is trauma-informed, meaning that clients’ traumatic experiences are recognized and validated to encourage emotional healing. All programs also focus on learning about relapse prevention, building support systems, and recognizing and dealing with high-risk situations.

Hospital-based inpatient treatment is intended as a short-term measure for acute care only. There is also is a dedicated long-term residential unit for children and adolescents ages 12 to 18 and a dedicated adult residential unit, Lasting Hope Recovery.

Outpatient options include a partial hospitalization program (PHP), intensive outpatient program (IOP), and general outpatient program (OP). These offerings are designed to help patients return to their daily routines and include individual and group therapy, family treatment, and relapse awareness.


The facility’s staff includes psychiatrists, child psychiatrists, a clinical psychologist, nurses, therapists, recreational therapists, chaplains, and behavioral health technicians. The one alum polled by to date listed the staff as a major strength.


CHI Health Immanuel welcomes visitors to its main facility, located off I-680 on 72nd Street.

The adult residential facility, Lasting Hope Recovery, has 64 beds, all of them in private rooms, as well as a chapel and internal courtyards.
