Mary Pickford (1916)
Mary Pickford, silent-film actress, co-founder of the film studio United Artists, and one of the original founders of the Academy for Motion Pictures, once said:
“If you have made mistakes, even serious ones, there is always another chance for you. What we call failure is not the falling down but the staying down.”
Millcreek of Pontotoc provides a “second chance” through a comprehensive array of services that help children, adolescents, and their families work through problems and issues that have seriously affected their daily lives. More than 250 children and adolescents are provided services daily through our psychiatric residential treatment facility, the five day treatment programs across the state, and the Marshall county outpatient services program.
Millcreek residential and day treatment programs provides strong, proven clinical and educational components that target each facet of the problem including the individual, family, school, and community levels. Whether a patient is placed in the on-site residential program, a student in a day treatment program or receiving outpatient services, Millcreek of Pontotoc will work to provide quality care in the least restrictive environment.
