Welcome from the CEO

Welcome to  On behalf of the entire Alliance Team, I'd like to thank you for taking the time to visit our hospital website and learn more about the psychiatric programs and chemical dependency services our hospital has to offer. For over 50 years, Alliance has been caring for the residents and visitors of Meridian, Mississippi and the surrounding areas.  And while our services have changed over the years, our goal to provide the highest quality healthcare has remained the same. 

At Alliance, we offer psychiatric and chemical dependency treatment in a safe confidential environment, where you will find compassionate and highly trained staff to care for you during your stay.  Whether you‘re interested in inpatient or outpatient treatment, our continuum of care at Alliance is designed to meet your needs and help you on your path to hope, healing and recovery.

As a strong community partner for more than half a century, Alliance will always strive to be the hospital where patients want to go, physicians want to practice and employees can be proud to work. Thank you for your interest in making Alliance Health Center your treatment center of choice.
