New pharmacy to open in Butte County Behavioral Health

CHICO – A new pharmacy at the Butte County Behavioral Health location will be available to behavioral health patients starting Wednesday.

Located at 560 Cohasset Road, Suite 110 in the Butte County Department of Behavioral Health, Genoa Pharmacy will be open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The pharmacy is a joint effort with Butte County Behavioral Health and Genoa Healthcare – a provider of behavioral health pharmacy and drug management services across the United States.

According to a press release by Butte County Behavioral Health, the pharmacy will aim to help improve medication adherence and health outcomes for people with mental illness, substance use disorders and other complex, chronic conditions.

“In California, approximately one in 20 adults lives with a serious mental illness such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and major depression,” Butte County Behavioral Health said. “Research shows that when pharmacy services are integrated with health care providers, people are more likely to get their prescriptions and stay on their medication plans. This increases the rates of hospitalization and emergency care. and improves health care outcomes.”

The grand opening of the new pharmacy will be celebrated on site on Wednesday, May 25, 2022, followed by commentary from leaders from the Butte County Department of Behavioral Health and Genoa Healthcare.

Despite the scheduled grand opening, the pharmacy has already served many patients, Butte County Behavioral Health Public Information Officer Holly Drobney said.

Frank Hemmer, senior marketing specialist at Genoa Healthcare, said the pharmacy’s grand opening was pushed back due to the limitations of COVID-19.
