Our mission is to provide affordable healthcare services that are high in quality and appropriate to the individual’s needs. It is the policy of SARHC to prohibit discrimination on the basis of race, religion, sex, color, national origin, age, disability, ability, or inability to pay for services.
DESCRIPTION OF THE AGENCY
Established in 1967, South Arkansas Regional Health Center is located in the south-central portion of the state. The main office is located in El Dorado, a community with approximately 18,884 residents. SARHC serves six counties with El Dorado being the largest community in the area. The six rural counties have a combined population of approximately 99,237. SARHC is a private, not-for-profit community mental health center providing mental health services to the residents of South Arkansas. The Center bills most insurance companies, Medicaid, and Medicare. Billing for client direct payment (self-pay) is based on a sliding- fee scale.
Our outpatient programs include services for youth, adults, and elders with a wide range of emotional problems including stress, depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and family and marital difficulties. Most clients exhibit significant Axis I disorders, which may concur with Axis II disorders. Individuals with dual diagnoses and trauma are also frequent within our client populations. We provide individual, couples, marital, and group therapy, case management services, as well as psychiatric care. We further provide numerous types of assessment. These tests include psychological and psychometric evaluations, forensic evaluations, law enforcement evaluations, and mental status examinations for Social Security Disability.
The Center’s staff consists of licensed professional counselors, registered nurses, advance practice nurses, occupational therapists, licensed psychologists, psychological examiners, psychiatrists, social workers, and case managers, all who are skilled in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness. South Arkansas Regional Health Center is composed of a group of caring individuals from a variety of disciplines, each dedicated to helping people help themselves.
