Healthcare Center In Midtown
It is an exciting time for St. Jude's Recovery Center (SJRC), as the organization prepares to expand its services to make an even greater impact in the Atlanta community. This new facility will bring to Midtown Atlanta an integrated healthcare solution to hundreds of low-income men, women, veterans, and families with children who would not otherwise be able to pay for treatment.

This is truly a game-changing development for the problem of addiction and mental health disorders in Midtown Atlanta. For 54 years, SJRC has been at the vanguard of providing effective services and programs to metropolitan Atlanta's and Georgia's underserved, vulnerable populations. In fact this isn't just our dream. Many individuals, foundations and corporations have come together to take a vacant lot and turn it into a critical piece of the revitalization of Midtown Atlanta.
