Recovery for every patient.
Overmountain Recovery is an outpatient opioid treatment program.
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.

Overmountain regularly measures and reports on the performance of our program. We track both efficiency and effectiveness measures.
Because of this dedication to quality, we’ve earned a 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
