Helping Young People and Their Families Navigate Mental Health Challenges
When standard outpatient treatment is no longer enough, the Hillside team are experts at providing the support our clients need.
Each of our programs is designed with specific treatment goals and structure to meet the needs of our clients at varying level of clinical intensity.
Hillside’s Residential Program offers comprehensive residential treatment for young people whose behaviors and symptoms have not been able to be managed at a lower level of care or in the community. As the first residential treatment program to become a DBT-Linehan Board of Certification, Certified Program in the country, Hillside offers specialized treatment protocols for clients ages 11-17 in a 24/7 supervised and structured environment.
Experience DBT is a 30-day, intensive adolescent day treatment that features experiential, immersive, and comprehensive DBT programming for teens ages 13-17 in Atlanta, Georgia. The curriculum is grounded in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Social Emotional Ethical Learning (SEE Learning.) The treatment goals are for clients to acquire and effectively apply the skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, to feel and show empathy for self and others, and to establish and maintain relationships while living with their family.
Hillside’s Intensive In-Home Therapy provides therapy and support services for children and their families in their own environment. The goal is to effectively meet the needs of the clients and their families where they are with creative and individualized therapeutic support. Our In-Home therapist will do whatever is clinically needed to help stabilize clients ages 6-24, along with their families, to prevent hospitalizations or ease the transition home from higher levels of care.
VIOP offers a minimum of six-weeks online intensive outpatient therapy designed for teens ages 13-17. Our treatment addresses the causes and symptoms that are interfering with school, home, and interpersonal relationships. This program is available to clients throughout the state of Georgia and Florida.
Hillside is unique among mental health facilities for youth in Georgia that focuses on children, adolescents and young adults ranging in age from eleven to 24. Our services resolve family issues by helping children with mental illness move more successfully through adolescence into adulthood. With a staff fully trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), we successfully treat children who have not responded to other treatment modalities.
We offer community-based services and residential programs to reach children and teens where they are - at home, school and in the community.. The help we offer includes individualized treatment programs that also incorporate the family to build a complete wrap-around support structure and improved family dynamics.
We treat each child and adolescent individually, tailoring an approach that includes a broad mix of evidence-based individual and group therapies that help our clients grow, recover, and reclaim their lives.
