VanArk Behavioral Management is a multi-service substance abuse treatment facility based in Pikeville, Kentucky. For over a decade, VanArk has offered prevention, treatment and education for the Eastern Kentucky community. The facility was founded by Rhonda K. Clark and Mike Vance, who together have four decades of experience in the mental health field. In addition to the original Pikeville location, a new branch was recently added in Prestonville to serve a broader clientele. All services are outpatient and ideal for those who do not require intensive monitoring.
Treatment and Staff
VanArk provides a wide range of services including Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) with Suboxone, DUI education and counseling and substance abuse treatment. Prior to admission, all potential clients are seen for a full screening which determines whether there is a need for dual diagnosis support or medication management. Non-medical detox is available for individuals who are dependent on opioids. All clients are frequently drug tested to ensure abstinence during the course of their treatment.
Clients enrolled in the MAT program are required to attend 12-step meetings in tandem with their medication as well as monthly group therapy and individual therapy once per month. The duration of MAT is determined by individual progress and decided upon by their primary therapist.
The DUI program is a psycho-educational track with varying degrees of intensity and lengths of commitment depending on the offense and evidence-based treatment methods are employed. First-time offenders attend weekly classes for a total of seven weeks to complete their program and classes also qualify as group participation. Second offender clients attend a total of 26 classes and group therapy sessions. Active participation and meeting with a case manager are essential to meeting court requirements to have a driver’s license reinstated. Triple and multiple DUI offenders have unique program requirements that are tailored to their needs and the requirements of the court.
All groups and classes are facilitated by LADCs. Staff members are able to have communication with employee assistance programs at the discretion of the client. For self-referred clients, individual therapy sessions can be scheduled to provide a structured approach to recovery. Most clients supplement their recovery with AA/NA meetings.
Additionally, VanArk provides specialized services for individuals who do not require treatment or medication management. Drug testing services are certified by Drug and Alcohol Testing Industry Association (DATIA) and Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA).
VanArk Behavioral Management provides treatment from two locations in Eastern Kentucky. Services including MAT and DUI programs for court-referrals with first, second and multiple offenders are available as is a flexible and basic outpatient track for self-referred clients. All programs are affordable and incorporate evidence based traditional therapeutic methods with a credentialed and experienced staff.
