Now open: 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:  NOW OPEN. 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.

*A sliding fee payment schedule is now an option for patients of Outpatient Behavioral Health. Please contact Patient Financial Services for more information regarding an application (828) 262-4111.

Inpatient Hospital

Appalachian Regional Behavioral Health Hospital Entrance

NOW OPEN. Accepting adults ages 18-64. 

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 nursing care, medical history and physical assessments. At the time of admission every patient will get an individual meal, medication and therapy treatment schedule.

Walk-In Assessment

Walk-in Behavioral Health

Walk-ins (age 18-64) 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.
