About Us

       RHA Behavioral Health Services impacts the lives of over 12,000 people across North Carolina and has been helping people lead healthier, more fulfilling lives since 2005.  We are a leading provider of high-quality supports and services for people with all kinds of behavioral health needs.  RHA is recognized by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services as a statewide Critical Access Behavioral Health Agency (CABHA).  This means that we offer a comprehensive range of behavioral health services to meet the treatment needs of the people we serve.  By meeting all of the behavioral health needs of our consumers, we can greatly reduce or eliminate the fragmentation of services that leaves some individuals without total, holistic, truly person-centered care.  To print out a PDF overview of RHA Behavioral Health, please click here. 

       Using the Recovery Model as the foundation of all of our programs, we are experienced in providing treatment and support to people with mental health and substance abuse needs.  RHA specializes in helping individuals who have a dual diagnosis: many of the people we serve have both mental health and substance abuse needs or have a developmental disability.  We believe that every person is unique and, therefore, every path to recovery and healing is unique. 

       RHA is a community-based provider, offering mental health and substance abuse services where individuals live and work, helping people to build natural support systems such as family, friends and community relationships rather than depending on clinics and rehabilitation centers.  RHA will work with individuals seeking services as well as their families and friends to identify coping skills and manage their symptoms.  We also believe that there is more to mental health wellness than therapy and treatment.  We can help individuals find and utilize important community resources such as financial and housing aid, recreational activities, education, and employment services.  We concentrate on creating opportunities for the people we serve, opportunities that will promote healthy choices, natural supports, and responsible independence within one's community.  This core focus also helps to reduce the likelihood of future crisis situations such as hospitalization, out-of-home placement, and involvement with the legal system.
