Daystar Counseling Center Partners With Henlen McNabb Center

Wednesday, July 03, 2013

Effective this month, Daystar Counseling Center will begin a new partnership with the Helen Ross McNabb Center, a regional behavioral health care provider.

 

Daystar has operated in Athens for more than 22 years, providing individual, couple, family and group services to children, adolescents and adults.

The Helen Ross McNabb Center will offer Daystar’s services at its present location (748 Tell Street, Athens, TN) and will hire all Daystar employees, which include several LCSW staff members and an office manager. The counseling center will operate with the name, Daystar, a service of the Helen Ross McNabb Center. There will be no disruption in services provided to Daystar clients. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call 744-8734.

 

This service expansion aligns with the Helen Ross McNabb Center’s on-going strategic effort to expand both geographically and programmatically. Opening an outpatient center in McMinn County will allow the Center to provide services to five additional counties, which includes McMinn, Meigs, Monroe, Polk and Bradley. The expansion will also lay the foundation for the Center to increase access to affordable behavioral health services in these communities.
