The Transitional Independent Living Program allows clients to transition from the Residential Treatment Program to continue their recovery and/or for new clients seeking to continue recovery and is structured for residents who function at a higher level. Clients are required to be medication compliant. The program provides oversight and supportive services with all clients being assigned a Case Manager.

Housing comprises single-family homes (three- to four-bedrooms). All homes are furnished with residents required to maintain their living environment.  Programming is individualized, allowing our clients to move through recovery based on their individual goals.

Programming is also structured around clients who are actively seeking work and/or a volunteer position, or who are seeking to restart education. Supportive Services include case management, medication monitoring, three meals per day and light housekeeping

Additional programming includes vocational support and training, as well as access to adjunct therapies and clinical therapies (al a carte). 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 TEAM, along with the client, adjusting the program to meet the individual).

During the evening hours and weekends, residents work on personal hygiene, relationships, socialization and recreational activities. Evening and weekend activities can include “movie-night”, ice cream night, Barnes and Nobel, trips to local fairs, parks and lakes. Outings also include trips to museums and restaurants.

The socialization program has been structured to provide residents relaxation time allowing them to interact with friends in a social environment. The client base is a mix of ages and genders with clients living with a variety of mental health issues.

To assist our senior clients (55+) who may require programming for co-occurring mental health and addictive disorders, day programming is provided at 347 Carpenter Drive, Sandy Springs, Georgia, as well as at our out-patient clinic in Buckhead, Georgia (3580 Piedmont Road, Buckhead, Georgia 30305).

This program allows families and clinicians, as well as staff, to understand when their loved-one is moving into the next level of care. The Senior Program (3-hour day program) also includes art therapy, yoga, massage and horticultural therapy, as well as physical therapy and occupational therapy at our Sandy Springs location.

Health & Wellness

Our “health and wellness” style of recovery is based on assessments over the last five years that indicate our clients require an appropriate amount of 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.
