Odyssey Behavioral Healthcare announces the opening of its newest Pasadena Villa Outpatient location in Glen Allen, Virginia, which will also serve the greater Richmond, Virginia area. This is the sixth Pasadena Villa Outpatient location and the second in Virginia. Developed to address an underserved market need, the Richmond location will offer mental health treatment and partner with Aster Springs, Odyssey’s newest eating disorder treatment facility, to offer eating disorder outpatient care.
According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI):
- 1.26 million adults in Virginia have a mental health condition; however, only 40% of these adults received treatment in the past year.
- Almost 2.2 million Virginia residents live in a mental health professional shortage area.
- Additionally, Harvard reports that 9% of Virginians will have an eating disorder in their lifetime.
The new facility provides evidence-based group, individual, and family therapy and leverages evidence-based treatment modalities along with experiential and expressive therapeutic approaches. Close collaboration with each client’s clinical team during admission, treatment, and aftercare planning ensures a seamless transition upon program completion.
“The Odyssey Outpatient Network has a strong track record of serving clients with a wide variety of mental health or eating disorders and our Richmond location fills a treatment gap identified by payors and clinical partners,” said Richard Clark, CEO of Odyssey. “Odyssey’s mission is to provide quality, evidence-based care for those in need throughout the country and we’re proud to bring these needed services to the greater Richmond area.”
To meet this community’s underserved mental health treatment need, Pasadena Villa Outpatient – Richmond offers both psychiatric and eating disorder programming for adults of all genders at the partial hospitalization (PHP) and intensive outpatient (IOP) levels of care. The clinic is currently in-network with several insurance providers and offers clients flexibility through multiple alternative payment options.
