About Us

Southeast Missouri Behavioral Health, Inc., (SEMO-BH) has assembled a group of highly trained and skilled professionals dedicated to individualized treatment of your personal and family needs.

For more than 30 years our staff has been committed to providing people suffering from chemical dependencies, emotional problems, psychiatric disorders and other crisis of life the most complete treatment services in the region.

In addition, SEMO-BH has become a leader in the regional chemical dependency education and outreach network. So that we can meet the needs of those we serve, we offer a variety of services, including medication assisted treatment using medications such as Suboxone.

The substance-dependent individual does not come stamped from a mold. People of all types of background, education, race or economic standing are vulnerable. In each case the struggle to get treatment is a difficult one. At SEMO-BH we want to make accessing treatment services as easy as possible.

Southeast Missouri Behavioral Health is a not-for-profit human services corporation that provides mental health services, substance abuse treatment and social services. Personnel are utilized to the extent of their abilities, education and experience in realizing our goals. The Agency’s own interrelationship is such that all services are coordinated and not duplicated elsewhere in our communities. Each program offered by the Agency is distinct and designed to properly fulfill its goals and objectives. Efforts are continually made to make known these services and educate as many clients as reasonably possible. Outreach, as stated, is paramount in the Agency’s overall operations.

Transitional and supportive housing are available to those requiring such support. Extensive case management and community support assistance is made available to all clients. Referrals are accepted from any social agency, medical facility, government entity, the clergy, and individuals on behalf of themselves or another. The facility is open; therefore, individuals may leave anytime at their discretion. To be admitted for service, individuals need only to present themselves for admission.

IMPORTANT UPDATES ON SOUTHEAST MISSOURI BEHAVIORAL HEALTH'S COVID-19 PANDEMIC RESPONSE

At SEMOBH we are committed to the continuation of uninterrupted client services throughout this pandemic for the communities we serve. We know it is critically important to those in need of our services that we continue to serve as a resource upon which they can take ongoing reliance. As such, with some slight modifications to on site or in office services, we are open for business to serve our constituents. 

Predicated upon guidelines and recommendations established by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, the US Department of Justice-Bureau of Prisons, and the Missouri Department of Mental Health, for the health, safety, and well-being of our clients, employees and their families, we are taking preventive measures that incorporate social distancing, enhanced cleaning practices for buildings, readily available products for hygienic purposes, and screening of all those who enter our facilities. 

Effective this date, the Farmington Aquinas facility, where clients of the Federal Department of Justice-Bureau of Prisons, United States Probation, Justice Re-Investment Treatment Pilot, court-ordered clients and our homeless clients will be housed; the Farmington Weber Road Building; the Salem Hart Building; the Rolla Office; and the Poplar Bluff Bank Building, will all be open for business as follows: we will provide virtual clinical services telephonically and via Telehealth from the Rolla, Poplar Bluff, and the Salem Hart Building, and many staff will conduct such services from home using Agency-approved equipment. All other housing facilities and outpatient offices will be temporarily idled for 15 days, at which time we will reevaluate the pandemic crisis and follow the direction of the Department of Mental Health, and other key stakeholders. 

During this time, those whom we serve should call 911 for emergencies, or call SEMOBH at (573) 756-5749 24-hours a-day for crises or non-emergency needs.
