ZION Integrated Behavioral Health Services, Inc. is a non-profit corporation formed in Southwest Iowa in 1973 to assure delivery of services for substance use disorder treatment and related problems to six (6) counties. These counties include Adair, Cass, Dallas, Fremont, Montgomery, and Page.

The organization in which initially served this area was the Southwest Iowa Alcoholism Center of Creston, Iowa. ZION Integrated Behavioral Health Services, Inc. (formerly Alcohol & Drug Assistance Organization, Inc.) assumed the work begun by the Southwest Iowa Alcoholism Center of Creston. The forming of a new corporate body to act as grantee for funding was necessary, so the ZION Integrated Behavioral Health Services, Inc. Board of Directors was formed. The organization’s headquarters were relocated to Atlantic, Iowa in Cass County.

Offices are located throughout Service Area 12 in Atlantic, Shenandoah, Clarinda, Red Oak, Greenfield, Perry and Adel with substance use disorder and problem gambling outpatient comprehensive services. Adult male (18+) residential/halfway house facility located in Clarinda, Iowa in Page County on the Clarinda Treatment Complex.

In 2013, ZION expanded services to include prevention awareness covering Comp 9 and 10 Catchment Area which are known today as Area 12 and Area 13. Presently, ZION is the subcontractor for prevention services in Area 13 partnering with Crossroads located in Creston, Iowa.

In line with the organization’s mission, ZION Integrated Behavioral Health Services became the managing entity of Southwest Iowa Mental Health Center in July 2018 and expanded the outpatient mental health component of the program in October 2019 to include Dallas and Guthrie counties. With this expansion new services began to be offered by ZION Integrated Behavioral Health Services through obtaining and awarded Chapter 24 Accreditation to provide crisis stabilization.


In October 2020, ZION was awarded Chapter 24 Outpatient Mental Health Accreditation.

July 2021, ZION enhanced services for mental health crisis stabilization and transitional housing by managing Harbor Point located in Clarinda, Iowa.

July 1, 2023 ZION was awarded the designation of Community Mental Health Center for the counties of Cass, Audubon, Guthrie and Greene.
