Behavioral Health - Appalachian Regional Healthcare System

Appalachian Regional Healthcare System's Behavioral Health Services offers outpatient clinics in both Boone and Linville, as well as a 10-bed Inpatient Behavioral Health Unit located at Cannon Memorial Hospital in Linville.

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.

How to get Help

Through an initial screening and assessment process, our staff, in collaboration with clients, work together to determine the most appropriate treatment for each individual and their family. If it is determined that our program lacks the appropriate expertise or resources to treat a client or family’s presenting problem, we will work with the client/family to find other available resources and services to best meet their needs.
