Two Rivers Behavioral Health System

About Us

A recognized leader in behavioral healthcare.

Two Rivers Behavioral Health System was established in 1986. We are a comprehensive behavioral healthcare facility treating children and adolescents, as well as adults. Mental health treatment and addiction services are provided in both inpatient and outpatient settings.

The staff at Two Rivers Behavioral Health System would like to extend a warm welcome to all patients, families, and friends. A successful recovery program involves supportive people, who are invested in the patient’s recovery process. We welcome and encourage any support extended to patients and their treatment process. The treatment professionals at Two Rivers recognize that patients may initially feel sadness, anger, fear and confusion when they begin to address the issues that brought them to the program. We would like to assist patients, family and friends in making the treatment experience one of quality and healing. Please do not hesitate to contact our staff for any assistance.

Two Rivers Behavioral Health System is a 105-bed, acute psychiatric hospital located in South Kansas City, Missouri and is easily accessed from Kansas City International Airport (MCI).  In addition, the hospital is close to most metro Kansas and Missouri suburbs. We treat a broad range of psychiatric illnesses such as depression, bipolar disorder, and anxiety disorders. Our facility also offers treatment for addiction issues for alcohol and other substances. At Two Rivers Behavioral Health System, focus is on our patients and their success.

Our treatment programs are specialized and individualized to meet the specific needs of patients in our care. We provide psychiatric treatment in a nurturing environment that facilitates the healing process. We recognize the need for involvement of a primary support person for our patients and also involve outpatient healthcare professionals, insurance case managers, and others who can provide this much needed support

In addition to inpatient treatment, Two Rivers Behavioral Health Systems offers less restrictive levels of care for patients who do not need a 24-hour monitored environment. Our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is held 5 days weekly, with 6 hours of treatment per day.

Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) meet 3 days weekly for 3 hours per day and are offered during both day and evening hours.
