Mental Health Programs and Levels of Care
We offer programs and services for clients at different stages of recovery. Clients are able to admit to the program that best meets their current psychiatric needs and then step down to less intensive programs as their symptoms and skills improve.
18 AND OLDER
Our programs are organized by levels of care. Residential psychiatric treatment is our most intensive level of care. Day treatment, intensive outpatient, and outpatient programs gradually provide less intensive staff support and require clients to use skills more independently.
Clients complete a psychiatric assessment as part of the admissions process. The admissions team uses results from the assessment to match each client with the level of care that bests meets the client's needs.
Residential treatment usually is the best level of care for individuals leaving a hospital or locked psychiatric acute care facility.
Located in Atlanta, our residential campuses are unlocked, voluntary facilities. Clients receive 24/7 staff support and private client rooms with private bathrooms.
Day treatment, sometimes called Partial Hospitalization or PHP, is offered as a step-down from residential treatment.
Clients who meet clinical criteria and currently live in Metro Atlanta may admit directly to day treatment.
The intensive outpatient program is a step down from day treatment. A shorter treatment day allows clients to transition back to the responsibilities of independent living while still receiving support. Transitional housing is available for eligible IOP clients.
14 - 17 YEARS OLD
Our psychiatric residential treatment program for adolescents ages 14 to 17 provides expert mental health care and a supportive environment. Teens learn skills to manage symptoms and change unhealthy behaviors, and families learn new approaches to support their teen.
Located in Atlanta, our adolescent campus offers around-the-clock staff supervision and support. Teens receive private bedrooms with private bathrooms. Welcoming spaces encourage continued school participation, peer connections, and engagement in treatment.
Most teens admit to residential treatment and then step down to the day treatment level of care. Some clients who meet clinical criteria and live in Metro Atlanta may admit directly to day treatment. Day treatment is a nonresidential program sometimes called partial hospitalization or PHP.
