Acute Adult Psychiatric Services

Creekside Behavioral Health provides acute psychiatric services to adults ages 18 and older suffering from mental health challenges. We serve communities located throughout Kingsport and surrounding areas in East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia. Our clinical staff includes psychiatrists, physicians, nurses, therapists, and social workers who work together to assess and diagnose clients before recommending inpatient, outpatient, or partial hospitalization care. Once treatment is completed at Creekside, we offer referrals to follow-up care within the patient’s community.
