Residential Mental Health Treatment Programs for Adults and Adolescents

Residential treatment usually is the best level of care for individuals leaving a hospital or locked psychiatric acute care facility. Licensed nurses and residential staff are onsite 24 hours a day.

What is a residential treatment program?

Mental health residential treatment programs give clients the time, space, and support they need to recover from an episode of mental illness. Clients learn how to manage their diagnoses and acquire skills needed to stay healthy.

Unlike a hospital, all of our residential communities in Atlanta, Georgia, are unlocked, voluntary facilities surrounded by gardens. Clients enjoy private bedrooms and bathrooms and participate in social activities on campus and out in the community. All of our residential facilities are licensed by the State of Georgia and accredited by The Joint Commission.


Residential Admissions to a Precautionary Facility

During this pandemic, instead of organizing our adult residential campuses by client age, we are designating South Campus as a precautionary facility for new admissions and Rollins Campus as our main campus for residential treatment.

Before admitting, all adult residential clients must receive a negative COVID-19 PCR test and self quarantine for 14 days. Clients may receive the PCR test in their community and then self isolate at home. Adult residential clients admit directly to South Campus and receive a second COVID-19 PCR test and a history & physical exam on the day of admission. They remain sequestered at South Campus for at least six days and until we receive results of the PCR test. They participate in treatment remotely through zoom and do not have direct contact with any clients living at Rollins Campus. Once we receive PCR test results from the lab, and the test is negative, the client may move to Rollins Campus.

Clients at Rollins Campus meet in person for groups and individual primary counselor sessions while practicing physical distancing. Individual psychiatry sessions take place through zoom. All residential clients at South Campus and Rollins Campus reside in private rooms with private bathrooms.

Adults Ages 18+

Adults ages 18 and older who admit to the residential treatment program typically stay in the residential level of care for 8 to 12 weeks before stepping down to day treatment.

Adolescents 14-17

Adolescents ages 14 to 17 who admit to the residential treatment program typically stay at the residential level of care for 6 to 12  weeks before stepping down to day treatment.
