Prodigal Sons and Daughters Behavioral Healthcare Service (PSDBHS) which is a division of Prodigal Sons and Daughters Redirection Services was conceptualized in 1985 when its founder Mr. Henry D. Muhammad (Hamilton) was at the apex of his chemical dependency to heroin and alcohol which had culminated into a lifestyle of drug related offenses, incarceration and homelessness. He had come to the fork in the road in his lie and had to make a decision between life and death! Little did he realize at that time that the beginning of his life would start at “Rock Bottom’!
The name PSDBHS grew out the unique relationship between Mr. Muhammad and his accountant, Mr. Kenneth Jones as they talked about the concept of an ‘optimum quality behavioral healthcare and substance abuse service system. ‘ Mr. Jones coined the name of the company ‘Consumer Friends Incorporate and encouraged Mr. Muhammad took that advice and the rest is history. PSDBHS took approximately 20 years to materialize and a large part of its crystallization was when Mr. Muhammad reunited with another colleague, Mr. Dennis Porter the Founder and President of Prodigal Son’s & Daughter’s Prison Re-entry and Redirection Service (PSD) around 1990.
Mr. Porter introduced his concept of PSD, how it was born and his future plans for the organization and Mr. Muhammad and ex-offender himself and who at that time was already a certified alcohol and drug counselor in college pursuing his undergraduate degree at Rutgers University (RU) immediately embraced the idea, completed the intense training program of PSD and joined the fraternity. The training encouraged him to go on and complete his degree program at RU and further his academic career to earn a master’s degree in Counseling Psychology at Rockville University and go on to obtain State Licensure as a Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counselor (LCADC) by the State of New Jersey. He is also licensed to practice in the State of Georgia.
