Horizon Health Services
The Chris Maloney Legacy Foundation is proud to announce its partnership with Horizon Health Services. The unique history we share with Horizon Health Services goes to the very heart and soul of our past, our present, and most importantly the future of the Chris Maloney Legacy Foundation. Strengthened in hindsight awareness; a deeper understanding of the compassion, structure, and vital attention this organization brings daily, we know that it is a beacon of hope, sharing the message of empowerment, and providing a simple voice of reason. It’s a place. It’s people. It’s a courageous support system which benefits all.
Our sponsorship of the Therapy Dog Program at Horizon’s Health Services has a dual connection for us here at CMLF. First of all, Christopher loved all animals and found comfort in spending time with them. More importantly, the 90 days he spent at Horizon’s Village were very challenging; however, the days in which Dakota, one of the therapy dogs who frequented the facility, visited were a little bit more calm and therapeutic for Chris. That’s why, when we were approached by Colleen Babcock, Horizon’s Health’s Parent and Family Support Coordinator, regarding setting up some type of sponsorship in Chris’ and the foundation’s name, this beautiful idea seemed the most meaningful.
“We have a lifelong, personal, and emotional connection with the Chris Maloney Legacy Foundation, and we are so proud to be considered a partner in their continuing efforts to support unique, hopeful programs that align with their mission.” – Christina Pearl, Director of Corporate Communication & HEART Coach
Horizon provides hope and healing for individuals and their families dealing with substance use and mental health disorders. Horizon continues to grow and improve both our services and our organizational capabilities. In doing so, we benefited from our organization’s mission-directed maturity, and our history of striving for excellence for more than 40 years.
We embrace our role as industry leaders and patient advocates knowing that the stakes have never been higher. The diseases of mental illness and addiction present urgent public health crises. They impact families in every neighborhood of our community. Education, prevention and treatment are our most effective weapons against these diseases. We offer comprehensive, person-centered care to help individuals and their families achieve improved health – including medical, psychiatric, counseling and support services. We know that effective treatment makes recovery from behavioral health disorders possible. Most important, we provide hope.
Horizon Health Service’s Mission Statement:
Together for Recovery. Changing Lives. Saving Lives.
Horizon Village, a 50-bed residential treatment facility, opened its doors in 1994 providing one of the first residential treatment facilities focusing on substance use treatment in our community. Residential treatment provides an opportunity for holistic recovery by providing person centered treatment in an environment that empowers residents to make choices as they focus on improving all life-skill areas and working towards their recovery goals from substance use.
The Horizon Village campus out in Sanborn has continued to grow while meeting the need of our community and assisting in continued education, treatment and resources to combat the substance use and mental health epidemic for those struggling. We currently have 125 residential beds on the campus among four different buildings and a Wellness facility that is equipped with a full gym, basketball court, work out center, wellness counselors and nutrition programs for all residents on the campus. Horizon Village has served over 10,000 patients and family members campus wide.
