Congratulations to our friends at Helen Ross McNabb Center, Celebrating 70 Years of Improving Lives!
Over the past seven decades, the Helen Ross McNabb Center has been the premier provider of behavioral health services in East Tennessee. Throughout the Center’s history, it has always found ways to serve those in the community with the most need and fewest resources. In its 70 year history, the Center has developed programs to provide alcohol and drug prevention, treatment and aftercare services. These programs advocate for and emphasize the importance of readily available, quality services for all East Tennesseans. The Center has kept a strong vision through its history, staying focused on clients first. With this focus in mind, the Center continues to deliver quality and compassionate care, demonstrate effectiveness, inspire its staff and build upon the spirit of its founder. As we celebrate 70 years of service, we celebrate our partnership with the Tennessee Association of Alcohol, Drug and other Addiction Services. We look to the future knowing that partnerships with associations like TAADAS allow us to continue our mission of “improving the lives of the people we serve.”
The Helen Ross McNabb Center is a premier not-for-profit provider of behavioral health services in East Tennessee. Since 1948, the Center has provided quality and compassionate care to children, adults and families experiencing mental illness, addiction and social challenges. As the Center celebrates nearly 70 years of providing services to communities in East Tennessee, its mission remains clear and simple; “Improving the lives of the people we serve.” For more information, visit www.mcnabbcenter.org or call 865‐637‐9711.
