The Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities (DBHDD), Commissioner Kevin Tanner, and River Edge Behavioral Health will soon hold a groundbreaking ceremony for a new Crisis Stabilization Diagnostic Center (CSDC) for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. 

The new CSDC is a result of collaboration between the DBHDD, River Edge, and the Mercer University School of Medicine.

The CSCC will offer services like "behavioral health assessments, dentistry, psychiatry, neurology, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech and language pathology, ophthalmology and other specialized services", according to the DBHDD.

The ceremony was originally scheduled to take place on Wednesday, August 30, 2023 but it was cancelled due to inclement weather caused by Hurricane Idalia. When the Groundbreaking Ceremony is eventually rescheduled, it is expected to take place at 1241 Rev. J. L. Mills Senior Way in Macon.

UPDATE: As of September 15th, the Groundbreaking Ceremony is now scheduled to take place on Wednesday, September 20, 2023, at 10 a.m. at 1241 Rev. J. L. Mills Senior Way in Macon.
