Welcome to Julian F. Keith Alcohol and Drug Abuse Treatment Center

The Julian F. Keith Alcohol and Drug Abuse Treatment Center (JFK ADATC), is an 68 bed inpatient treatment facility designed to meet the needs of alcohol and other drug dependent adults of the 37 westernmost counties in North Carolina. The facility treats chemically dependent consumers and also those who have a substance abuse and psychiatric diagnosis. The length of stay at JFK ADATC is variable and determined by individual need. We are part of a continuum of care that begins with the Local Management Entity/Local Provider who makes the referral to our facility. Admission is available to any adult consumer in the 37 county region regardless of financial resources or insurance status. JFK ADATC operates under the authority of the State of North Carolina through the Division of State Operated Healthcare Facilities (DSOHF).

Treatment at JFK ADATC relies on evidence-based practices that guide recovery work through motivational enhancement and building life skills. This process is designed to enhance the individual's awareness and commitment to recovery. Mental health needs are also evaluated and treated. Our mission is to treat each individual with respect and care in a safe, supportive environment. It is our goal to help the individual feel more empowered, able and committed to continue recovery after discharge from our facility. We coordinate aftercare appointments with community agencies to facilitate the continuum of care.

JFK ADATC is certified as a psychiatric hospital by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

JFK ADATC is accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations.
