History of Marion Area Counseling Center
(“MACC”) was born from the consolidation of the Marion County Mental Health Clinic Association and the Family Service Society. The Counseling Center was incorporated on October 9, 1974, and moved to the present location in December 1975. Marion Alcohol and Drug Service merged with Marion Area Counseling Center, Inc. in July 1979. Since this time the Counseling Center has expanded to include Viceroy and Monarch Place both which serve as permanent supportive housing for those with severe and persistent mental illnesses; Dave`s and Jody`s Houses which are supportive housing for those with severe and persistent mental illnesses.
