Serving a four-county area in West Virginia, FMRS Health Systems, Inc., (originally called FMRS Mental Health Council) is a nonprofit health services agency dedicated to treating individuals and families with mental health and/or substance abuse disorders. Founded in 1969, the established nonprofit is host to gender-specific treatment programs for children, adults, and pregnant and post-partum women, as well as short-term detoxification services and a variety of outpatient groups.


The Crisis Stabilization Program offers opioid, alcohol, and benzodiazepine detoxification for adults aged 18 and older. Intended to stabilize clients (and prevent future hospitalization) within five to seven days, this short-term program maintains an “informal, comfortable, home-like environment” for both referrals and the self-admitted, though the latter must complete a behavioral health assessment prior to entry.

The organization’s three highly-structured residential treatment programs are generally designed for individuals lacking a strong support system, or others having trouble with finances, work, family, or health. Set for 12 weeks in length, the LEARN Program helps men build substance-free lifestyles through daily individual and group counseling. As an alternative, an intensive outpatient (IOP) option is available for those living nearby.

The Mother Program, a six-month residential treatment program for women – some of whom may be accompanied by their children, while others seek to regain custody of their children – addresses various issues such as past trauma and domestic violence.

The facility also offers 90 days of residential treatment through its federally-funded program, Turning Point for Families, designed exclusively for pregnant and post-partum women. In this smoke-free 16-bed facility, women have access to specialized services for their newborns, as well as their younger and older children, while pregnant women may receive medication assisted treatment (MAT) to minimize the impact of the substance on the fetus.

For those with a steady support environment in place, yet find their habits interfering with daily life, the organization holds weekly outpatient groups on-site at its Raleigh office. Meeting on Tuesday evenings from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., the Early Recovery Group offers A.A. and N.A. meetings and other support groups. For those with a dual diagnosis, there’s also an open-ended Co-occurring Group where those in attendance learn effective ways of dealing with anxiety and everyday stress.

There are also two outpatient programs for children and families which utilize cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and parent-child interaction therapy (PCIT). Resiliency for Appalachia - Youth Overcoming Trauma (RAPP) is aimed at providing evidence-based treatment modalities and inform participants about trauma. There is also an education program for youths that runs alongside the regular school year as well as a mobile crisis unit.


Detox services are overseen by a psychiatrist or physician assistant, and the facility, per its employment page, looks to hire master’s level and licensed therapists, licensed practical nurses (LPNs), and other qualified professionals.


There is currently no information provided by the organization regarding the living arrangements and related offerings of its three residential treatment programs. In their surveys, however, three individuals were split on the matter: while two gave four or more stars for their respective facility’s accommodations and quality of meals, a third reported two stars, at the very most, for these areas.


Sharing an overall perfect five-star rating, the single alum polled by to date told of a treatment program that far exceeded their expectations: “This treatment saved my life and taught me so much that I was able to completely change my life. I learned everything I needed to be able to change my life.”

Elsewhere online to date, there is a single review on CiteHealth for just one out of five stars.[1] The anonymous alum complained about substances being smuggled into the facility and noted that clients are allowed in and out of the program too much.


As of this writing, two family members reported their loved one’s success stories to Together, the pair gave four out of five or more stars for the level of family inclusion and counseling options, amongst other categories.

Linda considered the counseling, administration, and accountability facility-wide strengths, while the other wrote: “My family member received the treatment that they needed. The environment was friendly and effective.”


FMRS accepts insurance plans, such as Medicaid, Medicare, and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), and offers discounted fees for those who qualify.
