A Space for Healing

Located in Dyersburg, Tennessee, McDowell Center for Children provides education, treatment, guidance, and encouragement for troubled children and adolescent boys. Our central location puts us within driving distance of Memphis and other major metro areas in Tennessee and Arkansas. Our 28-bed facility is designed to provide a close-knit setting for therapy and care. While we encourage interaction and peer-positive culture, our facility has plenty of day space to separate students by their needs and level of functioning. We also have many classrooms so that students can get the attention they need based on their academic goals and levels. Other features include access to outdoor spaces, recreation/gym facilities, and a dining hall. 


Help Is A Call Away

Our admissions staff is available on weekdays from 8:30 a.m to 5 p.m. to provide a no-cost, mental health assessment for your child. Call 888-266-7279 or visit our facility to get started. For questions about our programs, you can also use our online contact form.

In the case of a medical emergency or crisis, please dial 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.
