  • Psychotherapy
  • Group therapy
  • Addiction counseling
  • Medication management
  • Discharge planning

  • Board-certified psychiatrists
  • Psychiatric nurses
  • Licensed clinical social workers
  • Licensed therapists
  • Certified addiction counselors
  • Recreational therapists
  • Chaplains

Request Inpatient Care

If you believe you or a loved one may need inpatient care, please call 404-728-6222. Our licensed behavioral health evaluators are available to help you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Since inpatient care has specific insurance guidelines, our evaluators will ask for your insurance details and about your signs and symptoms to see if you qualify. Examples of signs and symptoms that indicate a need for inpatient care may include, but aren’t limited to:

  • Depressed or manic moo
  • Psychosis
  • Hallucinations
  • Delusions
  • Paranoid/suspicious behaviors
  • Not taking medicines appropriately
  • Suicidal or homicidal thoughts
  • Anxiety

If you don’t meet insurance guidelines for inpatient care, we’ll help you find support in one of our outpatient programs.
