Sharing our message of wellness and recovery is an important part of our mission at Perry Wellness Center. So we’re always delighted when professionals from other organizations come to learn from us and see what wonderful things are going on in southwest Georgia!
Recently, we welcome a group of visitors from New Horizons Community Services Board, a public mental health and substance abuse agency in Columbus, Georgia. Looking to expand its services to clients with substance abuse issues, the delegation checked out some of our activities, discussed ideas with staff, and took a tour of our facilities.
Program director Jackie Teasley escorted the group around campus, and later observed, “It was good to have these guests from New Horizons. We are proud of our educational center, our market, and the attitude of our staff.”
Phyllis Bleckley, our market manager, also showed the visitors around our outdoor gardens, greenhouses, and market. We hear that the pre-planted herb gardens were a big hit, and several found their way back to Columbus!
