Appalachian Regional Behavioral Health
Outpatient Care is accepting new patients for medication management and therapy.
New inpatient hospital OPENING FALL 2021. Currently, the inpatient behavioral health unit is located at Cannon Memorial Hospital.
A place for empowerment and healing
Our behavioral health patients are also our community members – friends, neighbors, and family members who, at any given time, may be having a hard time coping with circumstances in their lives and need intervention.
Inpatient Behavioral Health Hospital: OPENING FALL 2021. Since 2008, Cannon Memorial Hospital has provided a safe and secure space for mental health patients who perhaps would have nowhere to go, or would have to travel a distance to find help. Our recently established independent, freestanding Appalachian Regional Behavioral Health Hospital will extend that to even more patients in the years to come.
The Outpatient Behavioral Health Program meets the needs of adults, children and families experiencing a variety of problematic behaviors, thoughts and life patterns. Services provided include: testing, assessment and evaluation, individual and family therapy, medication management and skill building.
With a 96% patient / family satisfaction rate, the professionals at Appalachian Regional Behavioral Health are clearly passionate about their patients and seeing them progress. They work to meet the patient where they are and provide them with the care they need so they can thrive.
Currently open and accepting new patients. We can help people of all ages with:
- Thought Disorders
- Mood Disorders
- Personality Disorders
- Psychiatric Evaluation/Testing
- Psychiatric Medication Management
- Adult, Child, & Family Therapy
Forms to complete before your appointment
OPENING FALL 2021. Accepting adults ages 18-64 by referral or walk-in.
We provide a top-tier treatment experience for our patients. Our healing environment includes open areas with natural light and mountain views. We partner with our patients to meet them where they are and provide a combination of coping skills and didactic approaches to therapy.
The hospital is comprised of three separate spaces: Admissions, Treatment Mall and Residence Hall. All patients go through an admissions process which includes body and belonging searches as well as nursing, history and physical assessments. At the time of admission every patient will get an individual meal, medication and therapy treatment schedule.
OPENING FALL 2021.
Walk-ins accepted for assessment 24/7
In case of emergency, call 911
Walk-ins are welcome because we are a free standing facility. Patients do not have to go to Emergency Department (ED) first like other facilities. Adults, ages 18-64, with any issue can walk-in to our facility and we will assess them to determine if they need inpatient or outpatient care.
If a person is experiencing a crisis, it does not mean that psychiatric hospitalization is appropriate or an involuntary commitment is necessary.
If a person does not need psychiatric hospitalization or involuntary commitment, crisis services can still be helpful with an action plan.
