Background & History
Joseph’s, headquartered in Kinston, NC, was founded in 2007 by a medical professional from the Eastern North Carolina region who observed the needs of individuals with a diagnosis of mental illness and/or substance abuse in addition to individuals seeking support for an intellectual/developmental disability. When North Carolina restructured its mental health services to focus on community reintegration, it created an influx of displaced members with unmet critical care needs. Joseph’s was established as a result of a needs assessment that identified gaps in the community to serve adults and youth and is committed to empowering our members to becoming productive and positive members of society.
Our agency is licensed by the State of North Carolina Regulatory agency, Division of Health Services. Joseph’s is a (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities) CARF-accredited provider agency and (Critical Access Behavioral Health Agency CABHA certified. The agency serves approximately 200+ members per month in an array of services.
Joseph’s is led by a Master’s level qualified professional with over 35 years of service in the Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities and Substance Abuse services. The agency’s professional staff consists of a Medical Doctor of Psychiatry, Clinical Licensed Social Workers, Licensed Professional Counselors, Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist, Master’s level Qualified Professionals, Bachelor’s level Qualified Professionals and Associate and Para-Professionals.
