Your Mental Health Matters.
WHO WE ARE
Healthy Life Choices is a Family Counseling and Social Service Agency that specialize in bridging mental health, education, and access through technology to improve the overall functioning of children, youth, adults, seniors and their families.
WHAT WE DO
We provide behavioral health services to families through community-based support, anger management, family violence intervention, substance abuse services, crisis intervention, court-ordered services, education, corporate training, and social enrichment activities to residents of DeKalb, Fulton, Clayton, Rockdale, Henry, and Newton County.
WHY WE DO IT
It takes strength, courage and sometimes fears to move forward in current life situations. At Healthy Life Choices, we understand that at some point in life we have all faced some form of difficulty, not because we are doing something wrong, but because we have made a decision to do something right, or something different.
“The strongest people are not those who show strength in front of us but those who win battles we know nothing about.” – Jonathan Harnisch
