“We were so thankful to Magnolia Behavioral Health, Inc. Over the past 3 years, we had seen five other counselors/psychologists with our son, but in the last 10 months our son gained skills to cope. The ADHD/Social Skills group helped our son realize that he was not alone. The parenting skills group helped us know how to anticipate problems and equipped us to handle them. Thank you! – Your agency is an answer to prayer.  

Tim & Janet-Parents,  Decatur, Ga.

Magnolia Behavioral Health really speaks to the children where they are. You might expect a child to feel negatively singled out when they attend special group sessions. However, in this case, the singling out is positive. My child looks forward to attending the group and is seriously disappointed when a session has to be missed.  

Barbara-Parent,  Lithonia, Ga.

“Magnolia Behavioral Health was extremely helpful! I gained a lot of helpful information, knowledge and skills! Everyone was very understanding and supportive of me right where I was at - physically, spiritually, and emotionally.”

S. Carpenter, Atlanta, Ga.

"It's nice to leave work and have a place to go home to."

Jay and Cathy lived and worked at a motel until a change in ownership left them unemployed and homeless. Although they eventually found new jobs, they were unable to afford shelter. Magnolia Behavioral Health, Inc. assisted them in renting their first apartment in many years.

Kelly W., Lilburn, Ga.

 "I was one of the first residents to move and receive housing through Magnolia Behavioral Health. I was transitioning out of a treatment facility for chemical dependency. From the beginning, I knew that I had to set the tone of our community with determination, a cheerful and thankful heart. I also knew how important my ability to support myself financially and to feel productive would be to my success in sobriety. I stuck it out, and was hired by Whole Foods, with promotional opportunities with the company in the future."

J. McIntosh, Stone Mountain, Ga.
