History & Annual Reports
Behavioral Health Resources, LLC was founded in Spring 2011 by Brenda Rohren. Her interest in this endeavor was prompted by requests from several CARF-accredited organizations that were interested in contracting for management consulting to prepare for accreditation re-surveys.
Behavioral Health Resources was incorporated as a Limited Liability Company (LLC) in Lincoln, Nebraska on June 8, 2011.
In March 2013, business operations were expanded to include Clinical Services. In July 2014, our offices moved to the Corporate Centre office park. In February 2015, services again expanded to include Professional Development, focusing on sponsoring EMDR therapy basic and advanced trainings as well as consultation to EMDR therapists who are pursuing EMDRIA Certification and/or otherwise want to improve their clinical skills as EMDR therapists.

Strategic Plans. The primary focus of our Strategic Plan for FY 2013 and FY 2014 was to obtain CARF accreditation for our Dual Diagnosis Outpatient Treatment program serving adolescents and adults. This was accomplished in October 2014. Our initial focus in FY 2015 was to obtain licensure in Nebraska as a Substance Abuse Treatment Center. This occurred in March 2015.
In FY 2015 and FY 2016, we expanded our business operations to include Professional Development by sponsoring a series of EMDR therapy basic and advanced workshops. Information about these events is published on the Southeast Nebraska EMDRIA Regional Network website. In FY 2015, we also became the corporate sponsor for the Regional Network.
Our Strategic Plans for FY 2016 and FY 2017 included increasing our focus on providing services to military personnel, veterans, and their families as well as expanding our trauma-informed services for all clients by pursuing a collaborative relationship with a local organization to provide equine-assisted psychotherapy. After consideration, it was determined that offering equine-assisted psychotherapy wasn’t feasible at this time due to lack of Eagala (or other) certified Equine Specialist Professionals in the local area.
The Strategic Plans for FY 2018 and FY 2019 included an expanded focus on providing clinical services to first responders as well as increasing the number of organizations for which we provide CARF consulting services. In FY 2020, our focus is to increase the number of adolescent clients served in our Dual Diagnosis Outpatient Treatment Program and to contract for EAP counseling services for our employees. Due to onset of the global conoravirus pandemic (COVID-19) as declared by the World Health Organization (WHO) on March 11, 2020, within a few days we also added a new strategic goal of developing a program to provide telehealth services.
The Strategic Plan for FY 2021 was to implement the addition of Clinical Hypnosis as a treatment approach. In FY 2022-2023, the Strategic Plan was ongoing emphasis on trauma-informed clinical services via telehealth, prioritization of services to first responders and veterans, and continuous quality improvement for maintaining CARF accreditation.
