Part of our mission is to make mental health care accessible to everyone in our community. Destiny House is our longest-running program – one that has helped hundreds of Triad-area adults on their journey.
Destiny House is a day program for adults 18+ with severe mental illness. Admission requires a professional referral––a process we’re happy to facilitate for you. Participants spend up to 5 days per week and 5 hours per day in a safe and structured environment, with a variety of psychological, vocational, and educational options for improving mental health and well-being. Lunch and assistance with transportation are provided each day.
The cost of Destiny House participation may be covered by Medicaid, private insurance, or by fees assessed on a sliding scale. We also serve individuals with no insurance or other financial resources. In this case, an intake counselor will work with you to make a need-based assessment.
MHA’s Destiny House meets the needs of its patients through specific programs offered onsite, and through ongoing education and rehabilitation services customized for each individual. The program is nationally accredited through the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). Destiny House is also supported by Sandhills Center as a publicly funded LME-MCO.
We create Care Plans that help adults with mental illness transition into less restrictive levels of care. Programs can include social integration activities, monitoring of psychiatric symptoms, behavioral interventions, and vocational training.
Through planned sessions and classes, participants learn about their mental health issues and the importance of medication and physical wellness. We also provide training in peer interaction, personal care, communication, leisure activities, problem-solving, and more.
Destiny House has helped me so much! I was sad and wouldn’t talk to anybody. But after being around others like me, I wasn’t ashamed anymore. I started helping out and joining in activities–I knew it was the place for me. I love Destiny House! The staff, the people around me–they’re like a family to me.”

What seems frightening or hopeless today can quickly become a path to a brighter, more positive tomorrow.
Whenever you’re ready to take that first step, we’re ready to help.
