About Us

The ARH Psychiatric Center is the designated State acute mental health facility for a 21-county region. Inpatient care is provided for adults 18 and older. As part of the Hazard ARH Regional Medical Center, this facility is designed to treat the whole person with skill and compassion.

 
Since opening in 1993, the 100-bed ARH Psychiatric Center continues to develop its services, and is committed to offering an innovative model of mental health treatment for the rural communities we serve. The most frequent conditions we treat are depression, bipolar disorder and chronic schizophrenia. We help patients help themselves to return home to lead fulfilling, productive lives.
