Behavioral Health & Psychiatry Services
Appalachian Regional Healthcare System’s Behavioral Health Services include an outpatient clinic in Linville, as well as a 10-bed inpatient behavioral health unit located at Cannon Memorial Hospital. The outpatient behavioral health program is designed to meet the needs of adults, children and families experiencing a variety of problematic behaviors, thoughts and life patterns. We work to improve emotional stability and increase general functioning, as well as help clients identify, develop and increase the use of effective coping skills by emphasizing the existing strengths of the individual or family system.
