Centerstone is a non-profit health system that provides community-based mental health and substance use disorder treatments [1]. Centerstone is headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee and its services are available nationwide in the US through the operation of outpatient clinics, residential programs, telehealth services [2], and an inpatient hospital and addiction center.[3].

Centerstone also operates programs for the military community,[4] therapeutic foster care [5], children’s services and employee assistance programs [6].

Centerstone employs approximately 4,500 staff members as of 2016 and is led by CEO David C. Guth, Jr. who has served the organization in this capacity since 1991.[7] [8]


The Centerstone name was first used in 1997, but the organization’s history can be traced back to 1955 when Lowell Engelking and E.W. Williams, MD, spearheaded community discussion about the need for affordable professional mental health services in Columbus, Indiana, leading to the creation of the Center for Behavioral Health. Over the years, Centerstone has grown through mergers and affiliations to include more than 150 physical locations in six states (Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, and Tennessee) and a nationwide network of telehealth and remote providers [9].

Organizations that are now part of Centerstone include Columbia Area Mental Health Centers, The Harriet Cohn Center,[10] The Dede Wallace Center [9], The H Group[11], Dunn Mental Health Center, and Manatee Glens [12].

In 2018, Centerstone began a partnership with Cohen Veterans Network and now operates two mental health facilities for post 9-11 military veterans and their families. These clinics are in Clarksville, Tennessee,[13] and Jacksonville, Florida.[14]

Centerstone's research institute

Centerstone formally created its Research Institute in 2008 to further the organization's aim to advance the delivery of mental health care.[15] Centerstone's Research Institute comprises three divisions — the Centers for Clinical Excellence, Research and Evaluation and Clinical Informatics.[16].

Centerstone's foundation

Centerstone’s Foundation is intended to secure charitable resources that support mental health programs. In addition to fundraising, Centerstone’s Foundation is tasked with providing stewardship of all of its endowments, including disbursements and investments.[17]


Centerstone was awarded a 2020 Golden Stevie Award by The American Business Awards for its 2019 Annual Report featuring a Kintsugi theme. [18]
