Our Mission

To promote the health, recovery, and well-being of those affected by mental illnesses and substance use disorders through prevention, coordinated treatment, and supportive services.

Our Vision

Hope, Recovery, and Wellness are within everyone’s reach.

Our Priorities

Meridian is a private, non-profit organization with roots in the community mental health movement, which began in the 1960s, to bring education about mental illnesses and substance use disorders and treatment of those affected to the local level.

Our mission is evident in all we do, from developing a continuum of treatment services that are evidence-based for a range of illnesses to participating in our communities as a partner in enhancing the quality of life. It is Meridian’s goal to improve the wellbeing and health of our patients and community.


Meridian serves a geographic area that is largely rural and sparsely populated, encompassing 7,442 square miles with a population of over 543,000 people in Alachua, Baker, Braford, Columbia, Dixie, Gilchrist, Hamilton, Lafayette, Levy, Suwannee and Union Counties.

Our Administrative Offices are located in Gainesville, Florida. Our Columbia County location includes a Recovery Center, Counseling Center & Rehabilitation Services, Gateway Treatment Center, Methadone Clinic, and The Family Center at Williams Manor, located at 439 SW Michigan Street in Lake City.
