October, 12, 2017 – A recent expansion, extensive renovations and other upgrades will allow the Balsam Center in Haywood County to serve more local residents seeking mental health or substance use treatment.

The Balsam Center, operated by Appalachian Community Services (ACS) and located at 91 Timberlane Road in Waynesville, expanded its facility-based crisis unit from 12 to 16 beds and remodeled both the crisis unit and its outpatient facility. Other new features include upgraded technology to enhance safety and security, a substance use group therapy room, a nature trail and a primary care exam room. ACS also expanded the center’s outdoor recreation and gazebo area for individuals staying in the crisis unit and modernized its telehealth stations, which allow people to speak with a healthcare provider via video chat.
