Due to the COVID-19 public health emergency, Alleghany Highlands Community Services has closed our facilities to the public and will conduct all services via phone, telehealth, and video conferencing equipment.

This is being done to help reduce the risk of spreading the virus.  We will continue to provide services and support to the community.

Psychiatric, therapy, and group appointments will be completed by phone and video conferencing. Case managers are still available, and will also continue services through the use of phones and video conferencing equipment.

We will also work with you to ensure you have your medication.

Staff are primarily working remotely during this time, regularly checking both voicemail and e-mail and will be returning calls and providing outreach to clients. 

We are continuing to accept new clients via phone. Just call our centralized scheduling number: 540-965-2100.

If you are requesting services, you will be contacted by phone to determine next steps in your service needs.

If you are in crisis, please contact our emergency services number:  1-800-446-0128. 

Please continue to reach out to us if you have any unmet needs during this time and we will assist you.
