The Carolina Center for Behavioral Health has officially opened an 18-bed expansion that will help meet the growing demand for behavioral health treatment in the Upstate.
“We are excited to be able to provide more beds and space for inpatient treatment right here in our community,” said Jerry Chapman, CEO of The Carolina Center. “In the challenging times we are facing collectively with the COVID-19 pandemic, personal stressors so many are experiencing, rising suicide rates and increasing calls to the suicide hotline, the need for behavioral health treatment continues to rapidly increase. The Carolina Center, and facilities like ours, play a vital role in our community’s health.”
To further improve the patient experience, we have expanded our admissions area and we have reconfigured our dining services area.
“This expansion not only increases the number of patient beds to serve those dealing with substance use disorder, but it also allows us to reconfigure some of our existing patient units to serve more adolescents and adults dealing with mental health challenges,” Chapman said.
“The Carolina Center has been the area’s leader in behavioral health services for more than 30 years,” said Chapman. “It’s an honor to work with our community partners and serve the men, women, and teens in the area who are dealing with mental health or substance use disorders.”
