Behavioral Health


My wife and I benefitted from the sound care provided by the physical therapy staff at Potomac Valley. Their style was to encourage patients to do their best while recognizing the reality that all patients are different and need distinct treatment and adjusting each person’s program accordingly. The staff really cares, and is devoted to excellence and the maximum recovery possible of all in their care.

I’d like to thank you all for the supportive care you gave my Dad (and Mom) in his final days. Your Palliative Care program is outstanding and was so important for his end of life. I can’t thank you enough for helping Dad and all of us through a sad part of life.

Ellen's Story


Ellen’s lifelong psychological challenges increased with age and a short-stay with us helped her return confidently home. Read what her husband has to say about our SUCCESS behavioral health program and the difference it made in their lives.

Successfully navigating a behavioral or other psychological challenge requires specialized support.

At Potomac Valley our unique SUCCESS℠ program enables people with short- or life-long mental health issues to maximize independence and maintain family relationships.

While skilled nursing is always a component of SUCCESS℠, rehabilitative therapy services can also be incorporated if needed.

An innovative four-step approach drives SUCCESS℠.

  1. We begin with a 'holistic' assessment process, evaluating every single aspect of the medical, psychological, pharmaceutical, nutritional and physical elements that may impact psychological wellbeing.
  2. From this we work with the resident to develop goals that are targeted within an individualized SUCCESS℠ plan.
  3. Support and goal monitoring is carried out by our SUCCESS℠ team. This includes physicians, Nurse Practitioners, psychiatrists, neurologists, consulting pharmacists, psychiatric nurse specialists, social workers, clinical dietitian and others.
  4. Lastly we facilitate a successful transition to a place of higher independence.

Please reach out to us if you are a family member or friend of someone needing care.
