Make a Difference for an Individual and a Family
Pictured here is George, on the front steps of the Main House of The Gooden Center, with his one year old son Jack.
Jack is now much older and George has been free of his addiction since this photo was taken. Every cent you give to The Gooden Center makes a difference not just in the life of one of our clients, but their families as well.
Mental Illness and Substance Use Disorder have obvious severe negative effects on the life of the afflicted individual, so it’s often easy to overlook that these disorders are also truly family diseases. They affect the whole family and provide emotional, physical, and financial challenges for all members of the family. Our staff understands the importance of addressing all aspects of recovery including the holistic family elements.
Often the most difficult challenge is the financial limitation placed on the family just to make life-saving treatment available. It is here that you can help. The Gooden Center can assist through its Scholarship Program.
