Welcome to Waccamaw Center


It’s my pleasure to welcome you to our website. I hope you find the information helpful.

Waccamaw Center is an outpatient facility of the South Carolina Department of Mental Health
serving Horry, Georgetown and Williamsburg Counties. You’ll find much more information about locations and services as you browse through our site. Please also take the time to look at the video
Stigma in Mental Health, produced on behalf Mental Health America- Horry County.

We are particularly interested in working with families of adults and children who are diagnosed with
a mental illness, and would encourage you to participate as a family with services at the center.
Working together usually results in a better outcome over a shorter period of time. The Center is
funded to provide services to adults with a serious mental illness, and children with an emotional disorder. If we are unable to provide you with the services you need, we will provide you with information about other resources in your community.

Services at the Center are provided by a compliment of well-credentialed professionals including psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses, licensed counselors and social workers and other professional staff. We are highly committed to providing the best service available for persons with mental illness and
their family.

Thanks for visiting with us.
