Thompkins Treatment, Inc.
Thompkins Treatment, Inc. was established in November 1982 as a 12-bed residential facility at 121 N. 18th St., Cambridge OH. After the closing of a large state institution in Nelsonville serving 26 counties, funds were appropriated to local mental health boards to develop smaller localized facilities to serve youth. The "Nelsonville Project," as it became known, provided our local mental health board the opportunity to develop the facility and establish a private, non-profit agency to operate the facility. The original name of the private, non-profit agency was the Muskingum Area Adolescent Treatment Center, and the facility was called the "Thompkins Center" in honor of the late David H. Thompkins, the executive director of the mental health board who was devoted to developing the facility and the agency. Several years later at his retirement banquet, he was again honored as the Muskingum Area Adolescent Treatment Center announced its name
