Behavioral Health Integrated Services
Behavioral Health is the scientific study of the emotions, behaviors and biology relating to person’s mental well-being, their ability to function in everyday life and their concept of self. The Behavioral Health Integration Department of Jordan Valley provides Behavioral Medicine, a Pain Clinic, a Substance Use/MAT Clinic and Outpatient Clinical Services.
Once a patient has established care with a Jordan Valley provider, they have access to Behavioral Health Integrated Services. Behavioral Health Consultants (BHCs) are the gatekeepers of those Behavioral Health Services and assess the needs of the patients and make appropriate referrals. Behavioral Health Consultants see patients in every department at Jordan Valley. Patients can be seen on an emergent basis through Jordan Valley’s Behavioral Health Express Care at the main clinic on Tampa St. by a Behavioral Health Consultant who can also assist in establishing primary care or make appropriate community referrals.

Behavioral Medicine is the study, diagnosis, treatment and management of psychological disorders and behaviors. Jordan Valley’s physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners who practice behavioral medicine are trained to integrate their knowledge of the biomedical, psychosocial and behavioral sciences when providing care to patients. Behavioral Medicine is a multidisciplinary field – many types of physicians and nurse practitioners are capable of providing care within the specialty. At Jordan Valley, we are able to provide long term Psychiatric care to established primary care patients but Jordan Valley also practices the Psychiatric Consultative Model. In the Psychiatric Consultative Model the Psychiatrist, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant manages mental health issues through verbal or written consultation with the primary care provider. The BHC helps determine whether a verbal or a written consult is best, or if the patient needs a face-to-face appointment with psychiatry. Once the patient is stable, the primary care provider will take over the Behavioral Medicine component of the patient’s treatment.

Our goal at Jordan Valley is to provide you with the highest level of care by treating your pain from the whole-body approach that combines medication, physical therapy and behavior health. This type of approach has been shown most effective for controlling pain by treating both the patient’s physical and psychological needs. Compliance with the pain program at Jordan Valley means patients will follow through with all required services offered.
As a part of our mission, we focus on medication management for our patients. This program works with patients one-on-one to help lessen the number of medications an individual has in their daily regimen.
Integrated in our pain management clinic, our physical therapist works with our patients to increase mobility and ease pain.
This group is a part of Jordan Valley's whole body approach to treating pain. The eight group topics include: Pain Cycle, Assertiveness and Acceptance, Imagery and Relaxation, Negative Cognitions, Locus of Control, Expectations, Styles of Coping and Self-Care.
