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.


Please see our Covid-19 Information page for more information.

Masks are required at all times while indoors outside of private client rooms.

All clients admitting to the adult residential or day treatment programs must be fully vaccinated prior to the day of admission. Adult clients are not required to complete pre-admission testing.

Adolescent clients admitting before September 27, 2021, are encouraged to receive the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccination (the only vaccine approved for 12-17 year-old individuals at this time) prior to admission. All adolescents admitting on or after September 27, 2021, must be fully vaccinated for Covid-19 prior to admission.

Off-campus passes are not permitted at this time. Visitors to our adult campuses must be fully vaccinated. Visitors are not permitted at the adolescent campus.

Adolescents 14-17

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