Follow a Continuum of Care

Since recovery is a fluid process, the building and treatment program must allow patients to move along a continuum of care as their treatment needs change.

Patient Centered

Addiction is a disease that developed in the context of a lifestyle. Treatment will help patients not just live substance-free, but live differently!

Evidenced Based

Patients will receive the most updated evidence-based practices, medications, and technologies.

This three-fold focus has helped thousands of individuals not just climb mountains, but move them!

What’s your mountain you need to move?

The Story of Mountaineer: Where Hope Becomes Reality

Mountaineer Behavioral Health began in 2016 providing outpatient substance abuse treatment services to Berkeley and Jefferson County Day Report Centers. In 2018, Dr. Jonathan Hartiens of Mountaineer submitted and was awarded a $3 million grant to build the Mountaineer Recovery Center. A diverse community-based board of experts guided the process to completion. The Board selected the current site in Kearneysville, WV, George Harne as the Architect and Minghini Contractors for the construction. In 2019, the 48-bed Mountaineer Recovery Center opened with over 450 people celebrating the ribbon cutting. Since its opening, Mountaineer has become known for its first-class facility, top tier staffing, and research-based programing. This combination has enabled hundreds of individuals from all 55 WV counties in the first year alone make hope a reality!
