I’m super strong willed—have been since birth and my mom has the stories to prove it. As a three year old, I remember my lily white Easter dress with the wide yellow ribbon tied at …

I also remember my mother telling me, in no uncertain terms, to stay out of the creek.  I’m sure my eyes twinkled as I immediately headed for the creek to catch frogs and tadpoles.  You can imagine for yourself the image of a pretty little girl emerging with a frog in her hands and covered in moss and mud from head to toe.  I can still feel the sensation of being electric and alive even knowing there would be consequences.

As I grew older, this direct “I’ll do what I want” defiance changed and shifted as I learned to be more “acceptable” in my behavior.  I learned to toe the line so to speak so as to keep the world around me and my relationships functioning harmoniously.  Interestingly, by working to keep things copasetic around me, I discovered I’ve settled.  The challenge with this is there is peace all around me and none within me.  A friend from my past described me as “chronically discontented.”

It’s exhausting to settle because you lose little pieces of yourself in the process.  Reminds me of the scene from the movie Runaway Bride where Julia Roberts’ character is trying to figure out what type of eggs she likes.  Previously she always ordered whatever the love of her life at that time was ordering.  She was settling.  After sampling many different types of eggs, she discovers she loves Eggs Benedict.

Living in congruence with who we really are is the path to our greatest fulfillment and more joy.  It also creates challenges to the external peace you have created around you as others adjust to you reclaiming yourself.  You will shake things up in order to find your personal peace and this challenges everything you’ve become accustomed to as a person who settles.  On the flip side, you will be more interesting to those in your life and to yourself.

As I continue to work through my own recovery from settling, I encourage you to ask yourself if you have been settling. If you have been, what needs to change in order for you to live in alignment with your true self?  Develop a plan around those changes and work on it a few minutes each day.  Soon, you’ll feel your inner peace building and joy filled living will be even more abundant. You can change YOUR own life for good.

Hi there.
We're Radiant Health.

On January 19th, 2023 Grant Blackford Mental Health, Inc. and Family Service Society, Inc. merged to create a bigger, better, and brighter mental health organization called Radiant Health.

We’re excited for you to meet the new us, and to get a chance to help work together on the new you.

How we help.

When you’re in the middle of it, addiction can feel like a dead-end road. We know for certain that it isn’t. Just like any mental health challenge, addiction is an obstacle on our path. And, with some innovation and hardwork, we can work our way around it. On the other side of that obstacle is a bright future with healthy relationships, purpose-driven life, and a profound joy that’s been missing for all too long.

What do we mean?

Like so many things, mental health is passed down through families. Through behaviors, mirroring, and conditioning, we learn so much of what we know from those closest to us. Oftentimes that’s for the better, sometimes it’s not. At Radiant Health, we’re here to help ensure that your family makes purpose and joy as hereditary as any trait you might pass down to future generations. With a bit of hard word, together, we can make joy run in your family. 

What is Better?

Better ≠ perfect. Better means a path of continuous improvement; of evolution. When we focus on getting 1% better, 1% brighter every single day., we’re able to see the joy in the moment, while feeling the pride that comes with taking the reins over your life and working hard on yourself.  Here at Radiant, to focus on your future, we move towards it one achievable step at a time. 

What is Better Care?

When we talk about “brighter, better care” through our specialized services it boils down to 3 simple ideas. First, better care is safer care. Our facilities and staff are trained and equipped to offer safe, secure facilities during any stay. Second, better care is a respect for dignity. We believe in the dignity of every human being and we treat each person with the same level of respect. Finally, better care is the pursuit of purpose. Our treatment is designed with the firm belief that every person has purpose and, through it, finds joy.

What to Expect?

At Radiant Health you can expect a warmth and cheer that are rare in the mental health space. We believe firmly that the commitment to mental health is a commitment to finding purpose, but also discovering joy in the pursuit of it. Walking through our doors is a simple and transparent process. You’ll begin with an initial consultation with our expert staff, developing a blueprint, and taking that first step towards incremental improvement.
