Vitality Unlimited, headquartered in Elko, NV, was founded in 1971. Long ago Vitality Unlimited began to weave into the threads of our culture an integrated network of co-occurring treatment services with clinical and non-clinical modalities, designed so that an individual’s changing needs were met as the individual moves through the treatment and recovery process. With this as a foundation, Vitality Unlimited added to our continuum of care for substance abuse and mental health clients, bi-lingual services, pet therapy, transitional and low income affordable housing for families, seniors and homeless veterans. This includes but is not limited to, medication monitoring along with addiction and psychological assessments and consultation, either on-site or through targeted case management, care coordination and coordinated consultation with off-site providers. Vitality Unlimited recognizes that success must be earned through innovation, hard work, responsiveness to client and employee needs, and integrity in all business practices.
Vitality Unlimited recently opened a state-of-the-art behavioral health clinic, a “practice without walls.” This clinic is one of two frontier ...Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHC) in the United States. In 2018 Vitality Unlimited was awarded a direct federal grant to open a new CCBHC in Carson City, Nevada.
Vitality Unlimited is funded through multiple sources including State of Nevada Public and Behavioral Health, Medicaid, HUD, third party payers, donations and private pay individuals.
