HOLYOKE, MA - August 10, 2017 - River Valley Counseling Center (RVCC) in partnership with Genoa, a QoL Healthcare Company, announced  the grand opening of their full-service, on-site pharmacy, located within River Valley Counseling Center's 303 Beech Street location in Holyoke.  "We are excited to be the first outpatient behavioral health clinic in Western Massachusetts to have a Genoa pharmacy embedded inside a clinic. This will provide our clients with easier access to their medicine and will encourage medication compliance as part of the treatment they receive at River Valley Counseling Center," stated Rosemarie M. Ansel, Executive Director of River Valley Counseling Center. "Both the pharmacist and the pharmacy technician are bilingual in Spanish and will be able to assist all of our clients in understanding the importance of following their treatment plans. We look forward to a long and beneficial working relationship with Genoa."
Genoa is the most experienced pharmacy provider specializing in the behavioral health and addiction treatment communities. The RVCC pharmacy services are available to only RVCC clients, RVCC staff and their immediate family members. Being on-site allows the pharmacists and technicians to work closely with the RVCC care team to provide the best possible care for each individual consumer. While they specialize in behavioral health, they have the capacity to fill all medications. They are able to bill Medicaid and Medicare, as well as private insurance. In addition, Genoa also offers several packaging options that can be tailored to fit the needs of RVCC consumers, including specially designed adherence packaging.
