FULTON COUNTY DEPARTMENT OF MENTAL HEALTH DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES & ADDICTIVE DISEASES
Behavioral health and substance abuse are major societal health concerns. Many citizens are not aware of the devastating impact that certain behavioral and substance disorders may have on the social and economic conditions in the community. It is my goal to keep the community educated on these issues.
The Department of Mental Health Developmental Disabilities and Addictive Diseases (MHDDAD) provides high quality behavioral health and substance abuse services to adults, children, adolescents and senior citizens of Fulton County. These services include diagnostic evaluations for all behavioral health disabilities including Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders (ADDHD) a common illness in children. In addition, the Department provides individual, family and group counseling for a variety of other mental health issues including depression, eating disorders and schizophrenia. Special programs exist for Fulton County residents who are incarcerated and for women who receive Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) and have substance abuse and behavioral health issues. For more information or assistance please telephone (404) 730-0230.
