Tazwood’s History and Tazwood of Today
In March of 1972, the Peoria Mental Hygiene Society established a satellite clinic in Tazewell County known as the Mental Health Clinic of Tazewell County, Inc. Two years later in March of 1974, the Woodford Human Service Center was started in Roanoke, Illinois. It was staffed and managed by the Mental Health Clinic of Tazewell County, Inc. At the beginning of 1976, a merger of Tazewell and Woodford County mental health services took place and the new corporation was named Tazwood Center for Human Services, Inc.
To date, we continue to serve Tazewell and Woodford counties, but have also expanded our services to Lincoln (Logan County). Likewise, our services have increased to provide behavioral health treatment integrated with primary health care, addiction services, case management, crisis response services, residential services, psychosocial rehabilitation, school-based early intervention and prevention, court-supervised treatment, psychiatry and nursing services, peer support and recovery services, and drug screening.
To better reflect our agency’s emphasis on providing services which encourage health and wellness, in 2013 Tazwood Mental Health Center became known as Tazwood Center for Wellness.
Our services are available on a non-discriminatory basis to persons of all ages.
