History

North Valley Mental Health is an expansion of Valley Menatl Health which was started in 1994 with six staff and has gradually grown in size and the scope of services offered. Expanding from our base in Salem into the Portland area, we re-incorporated under a new organizational structure and added North to our name. Despite being a new organization, our team has deep roots. Most of us have been working together for years, cooperating to provide our patients and clients with treatment suited to their specific personal needs.

Business Hours

Most of the clinicians in North Valley MH keep their own schedules, offering a range of hours including evenings and Saturdays. After hours, a qualified professional is always on call to handle emergencies.

New Clients

It is usually more convenient to call the main office at 503-267-3708 to check on who is taking new patients, but you can also call the counselor of your choice to discuss becoming a client.

Prescription Refills

Be sure to call your pharmacy at least four days before you need the refill. Even if you have no refills remaining, it is almost always best to call your pharmacy. If a prescriber’s approval is needed for your prescription to be refilled, your pharmacist will call or fax us.

Schedule II Medications

Federal law requires that certain medications need a new, original prescription written by your prescriber each time the medication is dispensed. It is not possible to have a prescription with refills. If you are requesting refill of a prescription for a schedule II medication, the best procedure is to leave your prescriber a voice mail including your name, the name of the medication, whether it is immediate release or timed release, the strength of the tablets or capsules and how many you take per day. Unless you need to come in for an evaluation, you can expect a call back within a day or two telling you your prescription is ready to pick up.
