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.

A joint partnership
Overmountain Recovery is a joint project of Ballad Health, East Tennessee State University and Frontier Health.
Through this partnership, Overmountain is able to provide an array of services that include counseling, medication-assisted therapy, education, outreach, prevention and research to help change our region’s alarming statistics on prescription drug abuse.

The center is a key resource in the opioid abuse epidemic ravaging our 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.
