Recovery for every patient.

 

Overmountain Recovery is an outpatient opioid treatment program.

We offer medication-assisted therapy, which includes methadone and Suboxone® (buprenorphine), as part of a personalized treatment plan.

 

Our goal

Our main goal is recovery for each and every patient.

But not only that. All of us – from our program leadership to our staff members – aim to reduce the burden of addiction on our region.

We’re focused not just on providing a service, but on making our community a healthier and safer place to live, work, learn and do business.

Accreditation

Overmountain regularly measures and reports on the performance of our program performance. We track both efficiency and effectiveness measures.

Because of this dedication to the quality of our program, we’ve earned three-year accreditation from CARF (the Commission on the Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities).

CARF three-year accreditation is the highest accreditation level awarded to organizations like Overmountain.

The CARF accreditation process

To receive three-year accreditation from CARF, organizations are put through a rigorous process that includes, among other requirements, live on-site surveys.

These requirements ensure our programs meet CARF’s high standards of quality and accountability.

A joint partnership

It’s a joint project of Ballad Health, East Tennessee State University and Frontier Health.

Through this partnership, Overmountain Recovery is able to provide an array of services that include counseling, medication-assisted therapy, education, outreach, prevention and research to help change the region’s alarming statistics on prescription drug abuse.

 

ETSU Center for Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention & Treatment

East Tennessee State University’s Center for Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention and Treatment works closely with Overmountain Recovery.

The center is a key resource in the opioid abuse epidemic ravaging the region and the nation.

Started as a result of the ETSU Prescription Drug Abuse and Misuse Working Group efforts, the center is an informal network of researchers, health care providers, community residents and students. The working group meets monthly and currently has more than 200 members.

The center’s mission is to partner with communities in Central Appalachia to advance the science of substance abuse prevention and treatment.
