Samaritan’s Co-occurring Midas Dual Diagnosis Treatment Program Wins Hampton/Perry Award
The Hampton-Perry Award "recognizes the efforts of an organization that has demonstrated their commitment to dual recovery by focusing attention on the needs of individuals affected by co-occurring disorders." The award, presented by the Tennessee Department of Mental Health, is named in honor of Ms. Melanie Hampton, past Assistant Commissioner of Mental Health Services, and Dr. Stephanie Perry, past Assistant Commissioner of Substance Abuse Services, for their leadership in championing the cause of co-occurring treatment in Tennessee.
Accepting the award was Samaritans' Associate Director, Estelle Garner. "We are honored to be selected for this award," stated Garner, "our dual program has helped many people with co-occurring disorders and this award is really a tribute to them." Garner recognized Program Coordinator Deana Crossley and her staff, and credited the program's success to their dedication and commitment in providing quality treatment services to this population.
