Outpatient Admissions

To be evaluated for intake, call us at 470-781-1630. Patients will be confidentially evaluated on an individual basis through a systematic assessment process. Our caring staff will conduct an initial screening followed by a comprehensive interview with a professional counselor to determine medical, psychiatric, substance abuse and psychosocial information. 

Patients found appropriate for services will then be scheduled for a physical examination. Upon admittance, patients will be medicated appropriately and treatment started. Persons found not to be appropriate for opioid treatment will be referred to other services.

Individual Counseling: One on one counseling is required of all patients attending opiate treatment programs. Patients will be assigned a counselor who will hold regular sessions with them each week. A minimum of TWO hours per month is spent with a counselor during the initial phase of treatment.
