Company BIO

During 2015, a medical/therapy office was added to our offerings (270 Carpenter Drive). Located within this office space are a physician’s office, physical therapy room, individual therapy room and group therapy room.

In 2017, 347 Carpenter Drive became part of The Cottages/Bright Path Program GPS operations providing a therapy and activity center for our clients, as well as The Therapy ConneXion which provides “All Kinds of Therapies” (group and individual) to the community at large.

In 2017, The Cottages on Mountain Creek received accreditation from the Joint Commission, with four highly regarded clinical programs being part of Bright Path Program, GPS (Mental Health IOP, The Bright Path Pain Program, Bright Path Cognitive Assessment Program and the Bright Path Addiction Program). All programming has earned the Gold Seal of approval from the Joint Commission.

During this time, our services evolved to include clinical programming for seniors with memory care issues, as well as mental health issues. Bright Path Program, GPS now provides a Senior Cognitive Assessment Program, as well as programming addressing mental health issues. Our collaborative partner for providing co-occurring programming for seniors is Summer’s Landing Tilly Mill (a licensed personal care home located in Dunwoody).

In 2018, The Bright Path Addiction Psycho-Educational Program (Drug and Alcohol) was state licensed by the Department of Community Health. This program provides clients with a “maintenance” program (12 week out-patient program) which is individualized, documented and outcome driven allowing participants and family members to track progress throughout the length of the program. The Psycho-Educational Program has earned the Gold Seal of approval from the Joint Commission.

During 2018, The Cottages added a Physical Wellness Garden. The garden is designed to allow for young adults, as well as seniors, to partake in therapies associated with the garden, as well as enjoying the outdoors. The garden will have the added effect of providing “Light Therapy” not only for our residents, but our staff, as well.

In March 2019, The Cottages embarked on an expansion program for an additional 8-bed personal care home. The addition will allow residents to transfer to a lower level of care, prior to moving into an independent living setting. Our new homes is anticipated to open first quarter 2020.

In March 2019, the Cottages/Bright Path received a 4th Year Resident Rotation with Emory University Medical Center/Department of Psychiatry.

Our partners in growth include Equity Investors that have supported The Cottages during its expansion program. Without our investor relationships, The Cottages/Bright Path would not be where it is today.

Our dedicated TEAM of Physicians, Directors Medical and Clinical) and most importantly, our therapists, have resulted in our programming being successful for our clients, many of whom exceed by obtaining employment and/or volunteering.

A preponderance of our clients also experience co-occurring conditions that can benefit from our Drug and Alcohol Psycho-Educational Addiction Program.
