Untreated medical conditions can lead to unemployment, homelessness, and despair. Once medical needs are met individuals can begin to fulfill their personal goals of housing, employment, and education as they work toward self-sufficiency. MDC offers a wide range of services that address specific needs of homeless and low-income families and individuals.
MDC offers behavioral health services for economically disadvantaged and homeless members of our community. Our substance abuse treatment and dual disorder counseling services are available on a sliding payment scale for everyone.
MDC does not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, color, national origin, sex, religion, creed, age, marital status, disabled or Vietnam era Veteran, or disability, which includes persons known to have the HIV/AIDS virus.
