A nonprofit organization based in West Virginia, Prestera Center offers a full continuum of substance abuse and behavioral health services to adults and adolescents through its 55 locations, including Huntington, Charleston, and Dunbar. The organization’s Point Pleasant facility, located 55 miles northwest of Charleston, offers a long-term, gender-specific residential treatment program for men and women. The facility also offers outpatient-based programs and services and medically-monitored detoxification services on-site.


Before beginning treatment, clients participate in an initial psychiatric evaluation to help staff determine the most appropriate level of treatment. The men’s residential program typically lasts between three and six months. Along with detoxification services, the facility offers medication-assisted treatment (MAT) utilizing Suboxone to alleviate the discomfort of opioid withdrawal and help curb cravings. MAT is also available to individuals on an outpatient basis.

The residential program primarily consists of a structured schedule of individual, group, and family counseling sessions. Services offered include case management and relapse prevention training, psychiatric care, money management, and peer support services.

To help the transition back into the community, residential graduates may be encouraged to utilize the location’s outpatient program as a “step-down” aftercare service. Outpatient programming involves group counseling sessions, which address recovery coaching, the recovery process, and relapse prevention, as well as 12-step participation. Prestera Center allows clients to participate in the Suboxone regimen from six to 12 months.


A CARF-accredited facility, Prestera Center’s Point Pleasant location employs a multidisciplinary team of registered nurses, psychiatrists, substance abuse and mental health counselors, and case managers.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY has not received feedback from alumni of Prestera Center at the time of this writing. On Google, however, one alum to date rated the Prestera Center in Point Pleasant only one out of five stars.[1] Alum Aubrey claimed that the facility's treatment of people with mental disabilities was poor.


The sole anonymous loved one polled by to date submitted a review for an alum who participated in the outpatient MAT. Although the loved one rated Prestera Center four out of five stars for treatment effectiveness, they rated the facility a more moderate three stars for the facility’s counseling options and the treatment staff’s level of experience and training. They rated its holistic treatment offerings and exercise and leisure options only one star. They wrote: “Convenient, accepts medicare/Medicaid."


Prestera Center provides its services to clients regardless of a person’s ability to pay, according to its website. The organization also accepts self-payment, several private insurance plans, West Virginia Medicaid, and Medicare.
