The journey to freedom begins with recognizing the need for help and results with a healthy, drugfree, self-sufficient life. While at MHFH, participants identify the reasons behind their behaviors and traumas that led to addiction. Gaining new tools for recovery to live productively and free.
Our purpose is to work with every woman to develop a road map to recovery by providing wraparound services, to include day treatment, intensive outpatient treatment, aftercare, residential treatment, recovery housing, medical and mental healthcare, childcare, career development, and spirituality.
Accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) and by the State of Georgia Department of Community Health, MHFH provides comprehensive programs and services structured to fit each woman’s individual needs. We teach core concepts of behaviors and skills to remain in recovery.
MHFH uses best practice behavioral models, 12-Step model to address participants’ negative core functions, addictions and co-occurring disorders by making participants aware of their values, beliefs, thoughts, emotions and behaviors.
Dr. Tommie Richardson, M.D., Psychiatrist, serves as Medical Director for MHFH. Participants also benefit from access to nursing staff at the Support Center. Women receive a medical assessment, a physical and psychological assessment. Participants also undergo regular drug screenings and receive care for any medical issues that arise during their stay. Mary Hall Freedom House partners with a host of community healthcare providers to address primary care as well as mental health services for adults and children.
Destiny Unlimited mental health services assess and delivers appropriate individualized mental health care to participants with low to moderate mental health complexities. We focus on education of mental illness and strive to reduce the barriers that prevent recovery, successful employment, improved psychosocial function, and quality of life.
MHFH believes that family and community are important and necessary for long term recovery. We provide education, counseling, and support to families impacted by addition, mental health, homelessness, and many illness of our society.
