We are proud to announce that we will now be Narcan distributors – so if you missed the event you can still stop by to receive free Narcan and training on how to use it!
Thanks to Precision Mountain Property Maintenance, our “new” building next door has a face lift and we think it looks AWESOME! What new services would you like to see in the Charleston/Chesapeake area?

The Chesapeake Healthcare Center would like to recognize Hope Hartz on her 1 year workaversary! Hope has worked in the behavioral health field for 15+ years. She brings all of that experience along with her calm, professional way of interacting with others to CHC. Her patients tell us, “I feel like Hope can help me because she knows a thing or two and she has been doing this a while -so I believe something when she tells it to me”, “Hope is the only counselor I will see – when she takes a vacation ….I take a vacation…it is that important for me to see her”, “She is always professional, never dramatic, I feel like I am getting the best care at CHC with Hope as my therapist”
We celebrated Hope last month with a Tina Turner themed cookout that was SIMPLY THE BEST!
The Chesapeake Healthcare Center would like to recognize Breanna Hughes on the 1-year anniversary of her employment. Breanna is very creative, and her office reflects her artful design flare. Her patients tell us, “She is a really good listener, and she tells me like it is”, “Breanna is pretty levelheaded, and I trust her”, She is the only therapist that I will see because finally I am able to make sense of my addiction and I am on my way to better days.”
We celebrated Breanna earlier this month with soup (her favorite!) and some hilarious fortune cookies full of typical “Breanna sayings.” We appreciate you, Breanna!
