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 Prevention Requirements
All adult and adolescent clients must be fully vaccinated prior to the day of admission. All clients must receive a negative Covid-19 test on the day of admission. Please see our Covid-19 Prevention page for more information.
