People are so kind here. They help people however, whenever they can. They never send people away. They have references if they cannot offer services at the time. They pray with you, care for you. An outstanding group of people that just want to give back to the community. Very Jesus driven!

I recommend Branches staff to help anyone with coping skills needed for any of hard life issues each of us deal with daily. They are well trained & educated, nonjudgmental, loving Christian staff. It was a place I felt ‘safe’ to be able to be honest & open.

Does Branches accept TennCare or Medicaid?

Regrettably, the State of Tennessee does not permit Branches to accept clients who have TennCare or Medicaid insurance, even if the client is willing to come as a self-pay client. The state has designated providers that are pre-authorized to accept these insurances. For clients with these insurances, we refer to: Harmony Health: (615) 603-2272; Dr. Deborah Driggs: (931) 486-8670; Kimara Wilson-Clarke: (931) 368-3234; Jessica Huddleston: (615) 745-3405; Rhonda Pendergrass: (615) 645-2967. https://www.tn.gov/tenncare

Where is Branches located?

We have 5 office locations, each in Tennessee. We have 2 office locations in Murfreesboro, including our main office. Our other offices are located in Madison, Mt. Juliet, and Shelbyville. For more info, click here.

What happens if I forget to show up for an appointment or cancel too late?

If you don't show for an appointment or if you cancel less than 24 hours before your appointment time, you will automatically be charged $50 to the credit card we have on file for you. IMPORTANT: If you are using insurance to cover your visits, your insurance company will not cover any portion of this charge, therefore, the full $50 fee will be charged directly to you regardless of your normal copay. In addition, HSA and FSA debit cards cannot cover the costs of late cancellation fees and no show fees.
