In the spring of 1970, a group of community leaders from Ashley, Bradley, Chicot, Desha, and Drew Counties met in Monticello, Arkansas with representatives of the Arkansas State Hospital to discuss the possibility of establishing a community mental health services program for the area. At that time, the state hospital system had been encountering an increasing demand for local services throughout Arkansas and was quickly becoming unable to provide the kind of service necessary for quality care. A part-time clinic was opened in Monticello at the Drew County Hospital to begin providing mental health services in the area. Outpatient clinics in Ashley and Chicot counties were opened in 1972; and in 1975, the present facility in Monticello was constructed.
In 1977, the company was expanded to include direct local services to the five counties in the service area. It was in 1984 that the present name of our company was formally adopted by action of the Governing Board.
More than thirty years after the company was founded, Delta Counseling Associates, Inc’s professional and support staff are still firmly committed to providing the residents of Southeast Arkansas with the very best in behavioral health care services.
