We are excited to announce that we are rebranding!

We are now doing business as Ascensa Health.

Our new website will launch in February. Be on the lookout for the change!


What is Ascensa?

Ascensa comes from the word Ascension, which means to rise. We chose this name because it is empowering and representative of the recovery process.

Why did St. Jude’s Recovery Center rebrand?

We are re-branding because we wanted a name that reflected our vision for the future of our organization. We wanted our name to express the impact that we have in the community as one of the largest nonprofit recovery centers in Georgia. 

Are the services offered changing?

Ascensa Health will continue to offer a comprehensive and integrated system of behavioral healthcare that includes detoxification, residential treatment, outpatient services, health services, medication assisted treatment, permanent housing and recovery residences. Our services will remain accessible to individuals who are uninsured, low-income, or experiencing homelessness.

How did St. Jude’s Recovery Center choose its new name?

Our strategic planning process identified a need to better communicate our impact in the community. Our Leadership Team and Board of Directors utilized in-depth market analysis and careful planning to develop a new brand identity.

How should I reference the organization?

You may make donations to either Ascensa Health or St. Jude’s Recovery Center, Inc. If you are producing materials referencing our name and logo, please use our new Ascensa Health logos and branding. Please contact us if you need updated logos.
