About Village Behavioral Health

Village Behavioral Health is a 96-bed treatment center in Louisville, TN, near Knoxville. We provide comprehensive treatment and accredited academics for children and adolescents ages 10-17 who have been struggling with a variety of mental and behavioral health disorders.

Who We Treat

Village Behavioral Health is a fully licensed psychiatric residential treatment center and alcohol and drug treatment center for children ages 10-12 and adolescents ages 13-17. We treat adolescents who suffer from:

  • Mood disorders such as depression, bipolar disorder, and anxiety
  • Substance abuse and chemical dependence
  • Trauma from physical, emotional, or sexual abuse
  • Personality disorders
  • Behavioral disorders and other behavioral problems
  • Difficulty in school environment

Caring, Expert Staff

Village Behavioral Health’s staff is made up of caring professionals from a variety of specialties:

  • Adolescent psychiatrist
  • Licensed social workers (LSWs)
  • Master’s-level therapists
  • Registered nurses (RNs)
  • Licensed school teachers
  • Behavioral health technicians

Our behavioral health professionals ensure that each patient receives care that is personalized to address their specific emotional and behavioral needs. Our goal for each child is to help them understand how they got here, what poor choices they have made in the past, how their emotions have affected their poor decision making, and overall how to make better choices to become a more responsible teenager and, eventually, adult. We do this by creating an individualized treatment plan to fit the specific dynamics of each child.

The Nova Program

Village Behavioral Health offers a residential treatment program specifically for children ages 10-12. We understand that children have unique concerns, experiences, and abilities, and the Nova Program allows us to provide the specialized care they need.

The Nova Program can benefit children who are struggling with mental health disorders such as anxiety, depression, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), trauma-related disorders, and mood disorders. We also treat children who are showing signs of an eating disorder or substance use disorder.

With the help of our compassionate team, the Nova Program provides children and their families with the support they need to heal and grow together.

The Village Academy

On-site, we have a fully accredited college preparatory private school, The Village Academy, which features a full staff of teachers providing both general and special education services. Education is individualized, allowing students to remedy academic deficits. At The Village Academy, each child is evaluated and placed on an individual course of study.

The Village Academy staff works with each child’s previous school to achieve an optimal education experience. While at The Village Academy, each child can earn academic credits toward their high school diploma. The Village Academy can create a positive academic experience for students who previously have known frustration and failure.

Serene Setting

Village Behavioral Health is located on 65 acres of land, secluded on a peninsula of the Tennessee River. Our location provides a significant therapeutic environment for adolescents in a wilderness setting. Village Behavioral Health has a full ropes course and swimming pool and operates a vocational program and activity therapy department.

An Ideal Place to Heal

With a serene environment, individualized treatment plans, engaging activities, and top-of-the-line education for each adolescent, Village Behavioral Health sets itself apart as a treatment center that makes positive change in each child’s life.
