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.

COVID-19 PROGRAM UPDATE

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.

Starting Monday, April 6, all adult residential clients will admit directly to South Campus. They will remain sequestered at South Campus for a minimum of 1 week. They will participate in treatment through zoom and will not have direct contact with any clients living at Rollins Camus or staff assigned to Rollins Campus. After about 5-7 days, if they are not showing symptoms, they will move to Rollins Campus.

Clients at Rollins Campus meet in person for groups and individual primary counselor sessions while practicing social distancing. Individual psychiatry sessions take place through zoom.

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 weeks before stepping down to day treatment.
