RESIDENTIAL TREATMENT PROGRAM
The Residential Treatment Program is for adults 18+ living with mental health issues such as Schizophrenia, Schizoaffective Disorder, Bipolar, Major Depression and OCD, as well as other mental health disorders. Residents entering the 24/7 program are less stable and in need of more intensive programming and medication administration. The weekly schedule includes structured programming that consists of clinical therapies and adjunct therapies, as well as socialization (programming runs from 9:15am to 4:30pm).
Specialized programming is provided for young adults and mature adults.
Weekend and evening activity includes working on personal hygiene, relationships and socialization. In addition, residents can partake in recreational activities. Evening and weekend activities can include movie-night, ice cream night, Barnes and Nobel, trips to local fairs, trips to the parks and a day at the lake. Outings also include trips to museums.
The socialization program has been structured to provide residents relaxation time allowing them to interact with friends in a social environment. The clinical program has been developed to be flexible allowing the program to be adaptable to the individual (i.e., the program adapts to the individual with the clinical TEAM, along with the client, adjusting the program to meet individuals need). Although the Residential Treatment program is primarily structured around group therapies, individual therapy (CBT, DBT, etc.) is provided on an individual basis at the main campus, as well as our Buckhead clinic. As clients stabilize, they transition to Independent Living homes where the structure becomes less intense. Within this setting, goals such as employment opportunities, education advancement and/or volunteer work begin to take place.

To assist our senior clients (55+) who may be realizing cognitive behavioral disorders associated with brain trauma, extended drug and alcohol use and other co-occurring disorders, the Program provides a “state-of-the-art” (documented and outcome driven) program which is overseen by our memory care expert. Housing is provided on Mountain Creek Road in a newly renovated home (licensed Personal Care Home which is accredited by the Joint Commission).
The senior program allows families and clinicians, as well as staff, to understand when their loved-one is moving into the next level of the cognition. Our “health and wellness” style of recovery is based on assessments over the last five years that indicate our clients require appropriate clinical therapies, as well as adjunct therapies and socialization.
Part of our recover process is to provide fresh and healthy meals (fresh vegetables and fresh meats and fish when available – all cooked and prepared with little to no sugars) along with an active exercise program.
Although the Residential Treatment program is primarily structured around group therapies, individual therapy (CBT, DBT, RO-DBT and EMDR, etc.) is provided on an individual basis at the main campus, as well as at our Buckhead Clinic.
