What We Do
Sandhills Center manages public mental health, intellectual/developmental disabilities and substance use disorder services for the citizens of Anson, Davidson, Guilford, Harnett, Hoke, Lee, Montgomery, Moore, Randolph, Richmond and Rockingham counties.
As a publicly-funded Local Management Entity-Managed Care Organization (LME-MCO), Sandhills Center does not provide services directly, but acts as an agent of the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services. Sandhills Center ensures that residents in our region who seek services are able to access them through a network of contracted private providers.
We partner with individuals, family members, service providers, policy makers and other community stakeholders in creating, managing and supporting quality behavioral health services that meet the needs of our communities.
Sandhills Center's toll-free telephone lines can be reached at any hour of the day or night, including weekends and holidays. You can ask questions, talk with a licensed clinician, and make appointments with service providers. For information, assessment and an appointment with a service provider, please call 1-800-256-2452. If someone is experiencing a behavioral health crisis, contact our Behavioral Health Crisis Line toll-free at 1-833-600-2054. If an individual appears to be in imminent danger to themselves, you or others, immediately call 911.
