Why Infographic

Clients participate in structured therapeutic activities from 10AM to 4PM, Monday through Friday, engaging in a different group each hour. On evenings and weekends, clients participate in structured activities on campus and in the community, including trips to Atlanta museums, sporting events, and restaurants.

All clients participate in programs to strengthen mind and body. Clients receive nutrition and active living counseling, including daily structured exercise groups. An onsite primary care clinic collaborates with the clinical team on lab testing and specialized assessments, and clients with co-occurring medical problems like high blood pressure or diabetes receive onsite care.

Not a one-size-fits-all program, each client is matched with a dedicated primary counselor, staff psychiatrist, and peer support group based on diagnoses and symptoms.

Our evidence-based approach starts at admission with a comprehensive assessment. Based on the results, clients are assigned to a specialized treatment team and structured schedule.

We treat adults and adolescents with a primary psychiatric disorder, including bipolar illness, major depression, anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, borderline personality disorder, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.

All of our residential communities are unlocked voluntary facilities surrounded by gardens. While in treatment, all residential clients live in a private bedroom with a private bathroom.

We help client families learn how to support their loved one’s progress in healthy and effective ways. We offer a weekly family support and education group at no cost. With permission from adult clients, we communicate openly with families about client progress. And our onsite family therapy program helps many families discover new ways to trust, communicate, respect, lean on, lift up and nurture one another.

Our multidisciplinary treatment team includes experts in everything from nutrition to vocational coaching. Integrated services include:

Our clinical staff help clients work on re-establishing healthy sleep and meal schedules, self-care and hygiene, medication adherence, and healthy social and recreational activities. Residential activities help clients prepare for independence and life outside of treatment.

Our longer lengths of stay help clients reintegrate gradually and with support. Our continuum of care creates natural transitions to greater independence. Most clients admit to residential treatment, then step down to day treatment, then intensive outpatient as their symptoms and skills improve. Transitional housing, independence coaching, vocational services, and an alumni program continue to provide support as adult clients transition to independent living.
