Alcohol Addiction Recovery in Georgia


Every individual who enters our care will receive an individualized treatment plan, based in our holistic, multidisciplinary approach towards treatment. Our treatment plan is made up of effective, evidence-based therapeutic modalities administered to each individual based around their needs and strengths as they build towards long term recovery. Much of the treatment engages group therapy, and throughout recovery you will be surrounded with individuals with similar problems, facing the same challenges, and seeking the same opportunities for change. It is during recovery where you will be provided with not only the tools and skills to overcome your addiction, but the knowledge and experience of how and when to uses these tools on your way to long term recovery.

Recreational Therapy

Outside of your time at the facility, there are a number of therapeutic activities that you will have the opportunity to explore throughout the Atlanta area. These activities include trips to local attractions such as botanical gardens and parks.

These trips might have a social, spiritual or cultural focus. By allowing groups to explore local museums, art galleries or historical sites, they can begin relating these trips to exploration of self. Other therapeutic recreational activities include nature therapies, hikes and nature walks, a proven treatment that can ease stress and boost recovery.

You will also have the opportunity to go on outings with your groups, allowing you to take a break from the more intense aspects of recovery, and enjoy yourself.

Expressive Therapy

Expressive Therapy is another modality that we use as part of your treatment plan. Guided by your therapists, groups will get the opportunity to explore the creative arts such as music and art.

These expressive therapies help you tap into and examine your addiction in a way that is not verbal. Alongside the more traditional group therapies, we will help you engage with the creative arts in a manner designed to address your needs, your past, and your future.

Group Therapy

At Georgia Addiction Treatment Center, we strongly believe that group therapy is the foundation of recovery. In group therapy, guided by our experienced and educated clinical staff, you will build an immediate community of people with the same goal as you, recovery.

At every step of treatment, you can rely on those around you to be positive resources and help you to create a strategy for success. Together you will begin learning and developing new coping skills that will guide you to long term recovery.

Trauma Focused

Addiction and trauma are very often intertwined. If you have underlying trauma, part of your therapeutic plan will address your trauma head-on. Dealing with trauma will help you spur recovery. Your individualized therapeutic plan will focus on addressing any trauma in your past, and our trained and experienced staff will modify and adapt your program to directly fit your specific needs.

Motivational Interviewing

Motivational Interviewing is a therapeutic modality that encourages the examination of how an individual can make steps towards positive change. The therapy focuses on your strengths and motivations, and how you can use those to start making positive changes and build skills on your way to recovery.

Motivational Interviewing is based in positive affirmation. Living in the cycle of addiction can leave you feeling hopeless. Taking small steps towards regaining control of your life, with the support of our team and your group, is a first step towards regaining control.

Case Management

The cycle of addiction is disruptive; you might face legal or professional issues stemming from it. Your case manager will be your advocate. Case managers are equipped with a wealth of knowledge to help you tackle any outside issues.

Facing issues like bad credit or dealing with your criminal record can be daunting, but we will help.

Part of recovery is returning to a more normal rhythm, during treatment you will have the opportunity to start working towards that; we encourage you to begin working, return to school or start training for your next opportunity.

Family Therapy

Addiction is a family disease; we are committed to working with every patient and their loved ones to establish healthy strategies for healing, setting healthy boundaries and dealing with family issues head-on.

Upon starting any treatment level, our staff will assess your family situation, your strengths and needs, and begin reaching out to loved ones when appropriate. We are dedicated to working with you and your loved ones, emphasizing psycho-education, examining codependency and learning successful strategies to set healthy boundaries and build a foundation for success.

Co-occurring Diagnosis

Co-occurring substance abuse issues and mental health disorders are a significant factor in determining your treatment plan. If you need dual-diagnosis care, your treatment plan will be built around your specific mental health needs.

Severe mental health disorders can be debilitating; it is our priority to give you access to the care you need. At Georgia Addiction Treatment Center you will have access to psychiatric care, as well as the proper medications to keep you well.


Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is an accepted and widespread tool used in addiction treatment. In the cycle of addiction, you brain’s reward circuits are malfunctioning as you continue using unhealthy coping methods to deal with life. The focus of CBT is to relearn healthy coping skills to build the necessary tools to deal with the stresses of life.

CBT sessions focus on active goal setting and strategies, designed around your needs, with a focus on providing structure and direct plans of action. The therapy is collaborative and our staff will work with you on your goals.

CBT is educational, focused on you learning effective, healthy and safe ways to identify and deal with stress or other triggers. As you move through treatment, these therapies will help you get used to dealing with stress in a positive manner, without resorting to unhealthy habits.


Your therapy program will help you build the skills and experience you will need once you exit treatment, including strategies to prevent a relapse after treatment. The therapeutic techniques you learn and the community you build will be your strength.

As you progress through treatment, we will focus on giving you a list of resources to use when confronting familiar or new stresses out in the world. From inpatient to outpatient, your treatment program will address a healthy approach to long term success.

Aftercare planning is one of the most important parts of your treatment, and is what will help you move through recovery and beyond.
