Vive is thrilled to announce a new chapter in their evolution: Vive Family Support Program and Potomac Pathways are joining forces to turn the tide in the rising rates of adolescent anxiety,depression and suicide. The new company is called Potomac Programs, offering community, outpatient, and home-based care. Potomac's national services will intervene earlier in the treatment process in order to lower healthcare costs and heal families.
Potomac Programs (a division of Embark Behavioral Health) will be designing centers of excellence in major metro areas across the country that will provide the best-in-class, convenient and insurance-reimbursed experiences for young people and their families.
The move combines the former Vive Family Support Program (with community based services in Boston, New York, Washington DC, Atlanta, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles and San Francisco) with Potomac Pathways' IOP and PHP programs in Washington, DC. Alex Stavros, CEO of Embark Behavorial Health, stated, "We believe this move better positions the organization to take on the growing epidemic of adolescent behavioral health problems in this country. It's no longer acceptable to sit back and hope that things get better. This movement requires new, bold initiatives and creative partnerships that get at the root of these problems. We can't do this alone. It requires us to collaborate and problem-solve with insurance companies, federal and state agencies, as well as community providers, leaders and stakeholders. We need to provide a comprehensive continuum of cutting edge behavioral health services to all of our communities. This is a national problem. We believe that by creating access that educates and prevents, and by intervening lower in the continuum of care, we will help lower the stigma and increase awareness. "
Potomac Program's in-home based service is a relational and experiential therapeutic support program for families. The program works closely with families to offer insight, implement coping skills, and rebuild trust within the family system.
