Retreat, Recover, and Restart

At Atlanta Center for Mental Health, we understand that the decision to get help is never an easy one. Reaching out means acknowledging that you are having trouble managing on your own. This can seem like an embarrassing admission to make, especially to your peers and loved ones. That said, choosing to begin the admissions process is one of the best choices you will ever make. It means putting yourself and your mental health first, which can be difficult when people rely on you. But it will undoubtedly be worth it in the end. The experienced team at Atlanta Center for Mental Health is here to guide you through the admissions process at every step of the way.

Financing Your Mental Health Care

By doing so, you have done more than just admit that you are struggling. You have begun to take concrete action towards making yourself well and made your mental health a priority. This, by itself, is an act that takes courage. Early in the process, it is worth thinking about the financial aspect of your treatment.

The cost of mental health care and rehabilitation is the primary reason people in need of care don’t get it. However, at Atlanta Center for Mental Health, our addiction specialists will work with you to find the right payment options for you. If you are unable to work while receiving treatment, we can work out a payment plan over time. Investing in your mental health is an investment in your future. If addiction or mental health issues have kept you from living a full life, treatment can help you live out your potential. Since we offer a range of treatment options, we can help you find a treatment plan that you can afford.

What to Expect During Atlanta Center for Mental Health’s Admissions Process

From the moment we begin the admissions process, you will be well taken care of. The first step is to meet with a counselor who will assess your mental health needs. If your mental health issues are accompanied by drug or alcohol addiction, an addiction specialist will be on hand as well. During this first stage of the admissions process, you will provide our team with a complete medical history, including any referral you have received for our services. We will then assess the severity of your needs by asking you a set of questions involving your personal and family history, as well as your medical history. We will also talk about your specific goals and what you can expect in terms of recovery.

At this point, we will discuss the various treatment options and design a regimen that suits your specific needs. If like many of our patients, you are also suffering from addiction, this may mean beginning your time with us in medically supervised detoxification. But you can be sure that your treatment will include some of the following:

  • Recreational therapy
  • Expressive therapy
  • Group therapy
  • Trauma-focused treatment
  • Motivational interviewing
  • Family therapy
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy
  • Dual diagnosis

As part of the admissions process, you will also be assigned a case manager who is there to help you deal with any legal or professional issues related to your diagnosis. The above therapeutic modalities will involve both clinical and more holistic approaches and will be tailored to your specific needs.
