Addiction and Counseling Services

For well over a decade, our providers have helped battle addiction throughout Appalachia. It is a fight you cannot win alone but it is also a fight you do not have to take on alone. We can help, we want to help, and we will help but the first step towards getting help begins with you.

At Holistic, we understand how much pain, how much hurt, and how much you had had to endure. We also know that you can overcome addiction because we have helped so many others who have simply chosen to take the first step … and asked us to help. We can make it easier. We continue to provide services and work with our community partners and relationships to ensure you receive experienced, compassionate care on your road to recovery.

The battle of addiction can never be fought on just one front, it must be attacked from every angle. That includes things like accountability in our personal lives, maybe safeguards in our social lives, and professional help. There are medications and counseling services to assist you.

Addiction is a strange, deadly, and confusing disease. Sometimes getting help or the window for getting that help can be small. Have you reached your rock-bottom and have decided to do a search for a “walk-in clinic near me?” Do you know someone who has talked about getting help and is interested in finding help? The time to get help is now!


Our professionals know addiction, our caring staff wants to help, and we are here when you need us, even if that means right now. You are not alone! If you are needing, wanting, or looking into an addiction center for yourself or someone you care about, we know this can be a challenging time. We set the example of exemplary service and care particularly related to Addiction Counseling; we only employ Master’s Level counselors with years of experience. If you, individually or your company needs counseling services for your clinic, … call us, we can help you!

Annual Wellness Exams

At Holistic, we love to see our patients; however, perhaps the most important visit of the year is the Annul Wellness Exam. Surprisingly, and often misunderstood, the yearly “Wellness” visit is not a physical exam. What is an annual wellness exam?

A wellness exam helps your provider understand what is working for you and how to best support your continued health and well-being. We utilize a yearly “Wellness” visit to develop or update your personalized plan to help prevent disease or disability, based on your current health and risk factors.

Update Your Personalized Plan

During an annual wellness exam, your health care provider will run through a series of tests and checks to get a general sense of how your body is doing. Often, your provider will do this using a physical exam check list that applies to your age, gender, and any risk factors you may have. Some of these checks may include:

  • A review of your medical and family history; A review of your current providers and prescriptions.
  • Checking your weight, height, and body mass index (BMI): Your weight, height and BMI are important measurements that give your doctor an idea of how healthy you are for your age.
  • Checking your heart rate and blood pressure: Many things can affect your blood pressure, including stress, sleep habits, smoking, diet, and exercise habits. Having too high or too low levels of blood pressure are both risk factors for chronic (long-term) health problems.
  • Listening to your lungs and heart: This is done to check for any breathing problems, including wheezing or coughing. Your health care provider may also listen for heart murmurs (unusual sounds between each heartbeat) or extra sounds that can indicate a possible problem with your heart.
  • Performing a physical exam: Your provider will look at all the key areas of your body to make sure there are no signs of health problems. This includes checking the color and size of your eyes, looking for bumps or lumps on your skin, checking your stomach area and checking your reflexes.
  • A screening schedule (like a checklist) for appropriate preventive services inclusive of vaccinations, and other preventive services.
  • Advanced Care Planning.

What tests are done during an annual wellness exam?

While your health care provider may decide to do some or all these tests during an annual wellness exam, most standard visits will include the following:

  • Blood draw: This includes things like liver function tests, kidney function tests and an electrolyte panel, which checks the levels of certain chemicals in the blood.
  • Urine sample: This includes urine tests for sugar, protein, or blood. It also could include a urine culture to check for urinary tract infections (UTIs).
  • Sexually transmitted infection (STI) tests: Your health care provider may recommend an STI screening depending on your sexual activity or if you are showing any symptoms of an STI.

In addition to this, if you are getting an annual wellness exam because of a specific complaint, your health care provider will take the time to check out any symptoms and work toward understanding what is going on. If necessary, they will refer you to a specialist or doctor who has more expertise in that area of medicine so you can get treated as soon as possible.

What happens after an annual wellness exam?

Assuming you are healthy, and your test results come back normal, you will only need to do an annual wellness exam once a year. Your provider will also likely provide recommendations to improve or stay at your current level of health.

If an issue shows up or you receive abnormal test results, you may need to go back for more tests or additional follow-up appointments. Your provider will want to discuss the results with you and come up with a personalized treatment plan that will suit your current health conditions.

Concierge Services

America spends more on healthcare than any other nation in the world, while getting less healthy in terms of outcomes. In fact, for the first time in recent history, the average life expectancy for U.S. citizens has declined for the past three years in a row. You deserve a more effective healthcare solution.

Concierge medicine is membership-based healthcare that pairs exclusive, personalized care with accessibility and convenience.

Unlimited Office and Telehealth Visits

For a flat monthly fee, you get unlimited office and telehealth visits, as well as direct care from a provider without worrying about copays and other charges. In review we have found that many patients that have large deductibles find it cheaper to simply coordinate concierge care. You also gain access to your doctor’s direct phone line for medical questions and simple diagnostic and blood tests in their office. And if you have a major health problem, your provider coordinates specialist referrals as needed. With concierge medicine, there is no insurance or corporate health system interference—just doctors and patients.

We believe that the concierge healthcare model is the smartest way to deliver it. Concierge medicine is based on the principle that an upfront investment in your wellness should translate into a reduction in severe healthcare occurrences.

Patients of concierge doctors wait one business day or less for an appointment, instead of the average 20+ days and they can spend up to 45 minutes per visit versus the typical 13 minutes. We believe that the care concierge doctors provide can reduce overall healthcare expenditures.


“Providers are paid for how many people turn the turnstile.” Unsurprisingly, people who choose traditional primary care are frustrated with the lack of access to their provider. “They love their provider but hate the office.”

The traditional primary care provider routine is a familiar one—after waiting weeks for an appointment, you have some basic tests and screenings and wait days or weeks for the results to be uploaded to an online portal. If you are lucky, you get to discuss your results with a nurse over the phone.

How Much Does Concierge Medicine Cost?

Patients pay a one-time initiation fee and monthly membership fees. We offer monthly, quarterly, and annual memberships. Contact our office to discuss.

Is It Covered By Insurance?

The fees are an out-of-pocket expense. Depending on your specific care needs, you might incur additional fees for services like outside labs. Your health insurance company may reimburse some of these costs if the provider is considered an out-of-network provider.

Concierge care is not an insurance alternative—you still need coverage for hospitalizations and specialty referrals. Since routine care is covered by your membership, though, you can consider switching to a “high-deductible” health plan to save money. Contact your benefits representative or health insurance company to see what can be paid from your health savings account (HSA) or flexible spending account (FSA) as well. Make an investment in your health! Concierge medical fees are affordable!

Employment & Sports Physicals

Holistic recognizes the importance of physicals. Whether you or your family member necessitates a physical for a sport, school clearance, or a physical for employment, we can help.

Sports Physicals:

  • Identify and screen any potential undiagnosed medical condition that could make sports participation unsafe.
  • Look for and intervene in poorly controlled chronic conditions such as asthma, obesity, hypertension, post-concussion syndrome, mental health issues or eating disorders..
  • Screen for musculoskeletal injuries, chronic or acute, that need further workup or rehab prior to sports participation.
  • Personal and family medical history questionnaire.
  • Blood pressure and pulse measurement.
  • Physical exam.

Employment Physicals:

Physicals for work help to ensure the safety of the employee and those around them while they perform job-related tasks. Employment physicals are particularly important in high-risk positions such as commercial driving, law enforcement, public safety positions, manufacturing, and labor occupations. Moreover, countless employers have begun to screen for conditions that raise costs for employers. As such, we can help develop a plan and relay that plan (as necessary and only if required) to either maintain employment, maintain insurance costs, or both.

  • Personal and family medical history questionnaire.
  • Labs, as necessary.
  • Blood pressure and pulse measurement.
  • Physical ability tests for specific job function.

Some jobs and/or employers may also require blood and urine tests, chest X-rays or an electrocardiogram (EKG)

Our locations can provide same-day service, or you can schedule an appointment for your sports or employment physical.


Functional Medicine

What does a functional medical provider do?

A provider in functional medicine works holistically, considering the full picture of your physical, mental, emotional, and sometimes even spiritual health. They consider factors like diet, genetics, hormonal changes, prescription and over the counter medications, and other lifestyle components.

How does functional medicine differ from conventional medicine?

Our patients and prospective patients often ask us, “How does functional medicine differ from conventional medicine?” Or they wonder why they should choose us over a conventional medical doctor. Conventional medicine is innovative and has made significant progress in preventing, diagnosing, and treating a host of diseases and illnesses. Now, conventional medicine can even map your genes to identify markers for disease and more effectively target treatments to specific patients.

The trouble is people are living longer and feeling worse. Chronic conditions are on the rise. Obesity is now an epidemic. More children are suffering from allergies, asthma, and autism. More patients are showing up with digestive disorders and a host of chronic illnesses, including bowel disease, chronic fatigue, and cancer. Long story short, conventional medicine has not made us any healthier.


Functional and integrative medicine is different because it focuses on health. When you report your symptoms to a conventional doctor, the doctor either prescribes medication or a medical procedure to alleviate your symptoms and, perhaps, eliminate the illness. With functional/integrative medicine, our diagnosis does not stop at the symptom or illness level; we continue to peel away the layers of the onion to identify the source of that illness, which is almost always at the cellular level.

Restoring health instead of merely eliminating illness

By restoring health instead of merely eliminating illness, we give the body what it needs not only to eliminate the reported illness but also to eliminate other underlying illnesses that may not be showing symptoms and to prevent the onset of future illness.

The table below compares the two approaches side-by-side.

Conventional (Allopathic) Medicine

Diagnoses illness
Treats illness
Relies primarily on pharmaceuticals, surgery, and medical procedures to treat illness
Treats all patients with similar symptoms alike
Patient passively receives treatment
Treats from the outside in to alleviate symptoms and illness

Functional, Integrative Medicine

Identifies the source of illness
Restores healthy function to enable the body to eliminate illness
Employs numerous approaches, including conventional, functional, chiropractic, osteopathic, weight loss, orthopedic, environmental intervention, and lifestyle changes
Tailors the treatment plan to each individual
Patient actively participates in diagnosis and treatment, which often requires attending to environmental and lifestyle factors
Treats from the inside out to remove the source of illness and restore health

The ranges used to interpret test results shift the traditional doctor’s focus to determining whether you are sick, rather than gauging how healthy you are. With functional medicine, we work toward bringing levels into ranges that indicate health and vitality.

Prior to treatment, we conduct a thorough examination aimed at identifying the root cause of compromised health. Although our choices vary according to each patient’s physiological portrait, we use a variety of diagnostic tests and procedures, including:

Results from the examination and tests provide us with the information we need to make an accurate diagnosis and choose the best treatments. With the test results, we can:
