LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – In February, Ridgeview Behavioral Health Services moved to a new office for the Campbell County Clinic. A Spring Ribbon Cutting was planned, but COVID-19 derailed those plans.

Ridgeview has set a new ribbon cutting date for Thu., Oct. 8, 11:30 am to 1 pm.  A picnic lunch will be provided beginning at 11:30 am.  The ribbon cutting is scheduled for noon.

The clinic is located at 108 South 5th, LaFollette across from the downtown tennis courts.

Ridgeview currently offers an array of comprehensive behavioral health services at numerous sites. Last year Ridgeview served over 7,500 individuals and these 7,500 individuals represented slightly over 100,000 encounters.

The philosophy is simple in that Ridgeview believes that recovery is very real and possible and that individuals seeking services are essential partners in the recovery process. Additionally, Ridgeview believes in the concept of integrating behavioral health with physical health care and has several processes in place to enhance this important concept. Lastly, Ridgeview believes that safe and affordable housing is an essential component of the recovery process and as a result owns, operates and manages an extensive housing continuum.

Ridgeview offers convenient hours to access services, with staff on-call 24-hours a day/ seven day a week for emergencies. The center accepts most third-party payers and TennCare plans and offers flexible payment schedules-based ability to pay.  No one is denied services due to inability to pay.  (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 08/30/2020-6AM)
