Our Story

The Gibson Center takes its name from Allie Gibson.  Long before drug and alcohol treatment facilities were in operation, Allie and his wife would take alcoholics from the Scott City community into their home in an attempt to help them get their lives together.  The Center had its beginning in 1979 as a Halfway House.  With over 35 years of successful treatment service, the Center has grown to provide treatment to over 1600 people a year from the various communities in Southeast Missouri.  On May 4, 1990, the present residential center with its 46 bed capacity was dedicated.
