Behavioral Health Program
August 11th, 2020

In 2019, Northeast Alabama Health Services, Inc. (NEAHSI) rolled out the red carpet for their behavioral health program.

The establishment of the behavioral health program came from an idea that services for mental health and substance use disorders should be easily accessible to persons seeking such care. The behavioral health program provides consistent, affordable, and timely support to patients.
