Ballad Health repurposing Takoma Hospital in Greeneville for new treatment and services facility for women and children
Ballad Health is re-purposing a former hospital in Greeneville as a treatment facility for pregnant women and mothers suffering from addiction.
Officials unveiled the Ballad Health Strong Futures program on Thursday, which will serve to provide behavioral health services, including addiction treatment, as a way to help women and children that need medical assistance. Several local lawmakers, regional leaders, and the Governor of TN expressed wide ranging support, and even garnished a two year, seven million dollar grant for the program from the state.
Ballad consolidated acute care services at the Takoma Regional Hospital last year to set forth this repurposing initiative. Below is the complete list of behavioral health services that will be offered through the Ballad Health Strong Futures program:
*Collaborative provider partnerships

*Individual, group and marriage counseling
*Intensive case management

*Relapse prevention services two-generational, family-centered treatment
