Integrated Care Available When you Need It  

Research has shown that individuals have better outcomes when their care providers work together. We call that integrated care. Appalachian Community Services has psychiatrists, nurses, social workers, counselors, case managers, peer support specialists and support staff who work as a team with primary care physicians to meet consumers' needs.

We know that individuals need services at the time they ask for them, so we have coordinated our system to make access as fast and simple as possible.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

At Appalachian Community Services, we create an inclusive culture designed to prevent discrimination against all regardless of race, gender identity, religion, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, disability status, citizenship, or any other characteristics which makes each person unique. It fuels our commitment to CARE and connects us closer to our employees and the communities we serve.
