Novant Health Psychiatry office to close

SALISBURY — Novant Health is closing a psychiatric facility and a substance abuse treatment center in Salisbury.

Novant Health Psychiatry and Novant Health Psychiatric Recovery and Counseling. located at 315 Mocksville Ave., will close soon, though no date for the closings has been announced.

“Mental health and substance abuse recovery services are simply not one-size-fits-all and must be tailored to the communities they seek to help,” said Dr. Elise Herman, behavioral health senior physician executive with Novant. “While Novant Health Psychiatry and Novant Health Psychiatric Recovery and Counseling in Salisbury will close, we will continue to work collaboratively with Rowan County organizations and resources to bring services that will have a more comprehensive impact on this community.”

A Novant Health news release said the health care system will “review the scope of services our patients need.”

“We are continually evaluating the needs of the communities we serve,” the statement said. “We will make every effort to make the transition as smooth as possible for our patients, team members, providers, and the community.”
