FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Nov. 15, 2017

MACON – Shannon Terrell Gordon, chief executive officer of River Edge Behavioral Health, has announced the appointment of Frederica N. McClary-Myers, LPC, MAC, CAMS II, as its Fulton County Site Manager effective Nov. 16. McClary-Myers will manage two River Edge outpatient sites: River Edge – Boulevard at 265 Boulevard, NE, in Atlanta and River Edge – Roswell Road at 7741 Roswell Road, in Sandy Springs.

McClary-Myers, a licensed professional counselor, master addiction counselor, and certified anger management specialist, brings more than 10 years of clinical experience to River Edge. Prior to joining the River Edge team, she was the treatment diversion coordinator for the Fulton County Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities’ Treatment Diversion Program.

McClary-Myers earned her Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology from Atlanta’s Argosy University and her Bachelor of Arts degree from Coker College in Hartsville, SC. She is a member of the National Association of Drug Court Professionals, a Psi Chi National Honor Society member, and a Cambridge Who’s Who member.

“I’m excited to join the River Edge team,” said McClary-Myers. “River Edge is known throughout the state for its quality of care, and I’m honored to help bring these exceptional, evidence-based treatments and supports to Fulton County.”

Beginning Jan. 2, River Edge will operate two outpatient clinics in Fulton County. River Edge-Boulevard will operate on the first floor of the Center for Health and Rehabilitation and will offer a continuum of adult core behavioral health services.

The River Edge – Roswell Road location will operate in Suite A of the Fulton County North Annex.  The site will be open two days a week with limited adult core services, primarily for substance use disorder.

“I am delighted to welcome Frederica to our team,” said Gordon. “I am confident her experience, compassion and passion will be instrumental in ushering River Edge’s adult mental health and substance use disorder treatments into Fulton County. At River Edge, we like to say we make life better, and I look forward to working together with Frederica, the River Edge team, and our partners in Fulton County to make life better for this community.”
