WHO WE SERVE
SPECIALIZED TREATMENT PROGRAMS
Ridgeview Institute adult’s Foundations program specializes in the treatment of mental health and substance use disorders through evidenced based treatment approaches.
The adolescent program is for teens between the age of 12-17 who require more intensive treatment for severe depression, suicidal thoughts and behaviors, anxiety, mood disorders, psychosis, and other behavioral health concerns. Thrive teaches teens to cope with life stressors, improve decision making skills and learn adaptive, easy to manage mental and behavioral health symptoms.
Adult Addiction Program
Renew helps adults address the disease of addiction. We work together with our patients to treat the disease of addiction and to cultivate strategies that can lead to a manageable, addiction-free life.
Senior Adult Program
We offer two specialized senior programs at Smyrna to meet the varied needs of our senior population. The first is designed to diagnose and treat mental illness and/or substance use disorders. While the second focuses on cognitive impairment challenges. These patients may require more structure, direction, and assistance due to cognitive changes related to Alzheimer’s disease, delirium, psychosis, or other conditions.
The goal of this program is to assist women in dealing with issues such as trauma, depression, anxiety, mood disorders, familial, professional and personal stress, grief and loss, substance use/misuse, and disordered eating symptoms.

Overall great program and great lectures. My small group was amazing. Being in another treatment program previously, my experience here was night and day.
