Alleviant Health Centers will expand its headquarters in Little Rock, the company said on Tuesday.

An operator of mental health clinics across the U.S., Alleviant provides a combination of traditional therapies and innovative, holistic methods for its patients. In addition to maintaining their corporate operations of 20 employees, the company will add 115 corporate jobs, described as “high-paying,” that includes 22 telebehavioral professionals. The corporate jobs include functions in finance, accounting, marketing, business development, human resources and legal.

“We are very excited to locate our national headquarters in Little Rock. Our company is here to serve patients in need of mental health services, referring providers that need their patients seen quickly and comprehensively, and Arkansans seeking excellent employment opportunities. We desire to quickly become the employer of choice in central Arkansas and we pride ourselves in creating healthcare structures tailored to fill real gaps in mental healthcare, like transitional care psychiatry.” said Brian Mears, founder and CEO of Alleviant.

Founded in 2017, Alleviant provides comprehensive psychiatric care, from counseling and medication management to innovative therapies like Ketamine Infusion Therapy, Nasal Ketamine, and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS). In addition, it provides telebehavioral health services. Alleviant has a growing network of clinics in six states, including multiple clinics in Arkansas.

“It’s important to keep homegrown companies at home, and I applaud everyone who worked so diligently for these jobs and investment,” said Gov. Asa Hutchinson. “It’s always nice to know when competing against other states, Arkansas regularly comes out on top.”
