How to Refer

WE VALUE YOUR REFERRAL. Please call our admissions team at 866-504-4966 or complete the referral form below. An admissions counselor can answer your questions about how our residential treatment, day treatment, or outpatient programs may meet the clinical needs of your adult or adolescent client.

Programs for Adults

Our mental health 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

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

Day treatment is offered as a step-down from residential treatment. Transitional housing is available for eligible clients stepping down from residential treatment.  Direct admissions to day treatment are limited at this time, and clients must currently reside in Metro Atlanta.


A variety of outpatient programs provide support after graduating from a treatment program or as a supplement to outpatient therapy in the community.

Outpatient programs include TMS, primary care, comprehensive assessment, vocational services, a social club, and an alumni program.

Programs for Adolescents

Psychiatric residential treatment and day treatment programs for adolescents ages 14 to 17 provide expert mental health care and a supportive environment. Teens learn skills to manage symptoms and change unhealthy behaviors, and families learn how to support their adolescent through appropriate boundaries, validation, and communication.

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 family engagement.

A Healing Community

Specialized and respectful mental health residential treatment facilities offer socialization and support. Adult clients admit to Skyland Trail South Residential Campus or to Rollins Campus. Adolescent clients receive treatment at the J. Rex Fuqua Campus. All our psychiatric residential treatment facilities offer private bedrooms and bathrooms and are:

  • voluntary, unlocked facilities
  • accredited by The Joint Commission
  • licensed by the State of Georgia
  • staffed 24/7 with nurses and residential counselors
  • surrounded by gardens
