Make A difference

Preferred Behavioral Health Group (PBHG) is a non-profit organization committed to promoting mental health and providing addiction treatment services to the community. We believe that access to quality care for those struggling with mental health and substance use disorders is essential, and donations are crucial to our mission.

With your donation, PBHG can expand its reach and serve more individuals and families in need. Your contribution can help us hire more therapists, provide training for our staff, and improve our facilities to ensure that we offer the best possible care. It can also help us develop new programs that address emerging needs in our community.

When you donate to PBHG, you are investing in the health and well-being of our community. Together, we can break the stigma surrounding mental illness and addiction and provide individuals with the care they need to achieve long-term recovery. Your donation, no matter how big or small can make a real difference in the lives of those who are struggling with mental health and addiction issues. 

You can donate online or make a donation by mail. Thank you for your support.
