Our high quality, community-based mental health service delivery approach now joins with DebLin Health to continue bringing needed, effective, and convenient behavioral health and substance use services for patients and their families in the great state of Texas.

Debra Jackson, founder and CEO of DebLin Health, will stay on in leading the company as it enters this new phase of growth in Texas. Jackson comments, “We are excited to have become the newest member of the Seaside organization and look forward to a future of providing our broad range of behavioral health treatment and resiliency and recovery services to those persons living with the challenges of mental illness in Texas and whom we have served for over two decades.”
