Substance Use Support at Pender Community Hospital

Every individual struggling with substance use deserves compassion, understanding, and a pathway to recovery.

At Pender Community Hospital, we offer compassionate and professional support to those tackling the challenges of substance use. These telemedicine appointments are available thanks to PCH’s partnership with the Bryan Independence Center in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Services We Offer

The licensed counselors at Bryan Independence Center are dedicated to delivering confidential and personalized outpatient substance-use evaluations and counseling for patients who are 15 and older. Understanding that each individual requires a unique approach:

  • Comprehensive Substance Use Evaluations: An in-depth assessment to understand the extent of substance use and its impact on the patient’s well-being.
  • Individualized Counseling Sessions: Targeted therapy, conducted via telemedicine, that focuses on behavior changes and coping strategies.
  • A Spectrum of Treatment Options: For those needing care beyond outpatient counseling, we connect patients with a variety of treatment levels.
  • Coordination with Healthcare Providers: We encourage community healthcare providers to refer patients and collaborate for the best outcomes.
