Outpatient Programs at Hillside
Hillside is an outpatient mental health clinic in Atlanta, Georgia, and we offer several treatment options for children and teens who do not need the structure and supervision of a residential program. We can create a schedule of outpatient services for your child that fits their needs and are delivered at convenient times of the day or evening.
Our outpatient programs allow you to keep your child at home, where he or she remains an integral member of your family. Meanwhile, your child is getting the behavioral services he or she needs to function better at home and at school. The amount of time spent at our mental health facility in Georgia depends on the type and amount of services your child requires.
Outpatient Mental Health Services That Come to You
Hillside’s Community Intervention Program gets out into the Metro Atlanta community to offer support to children and families in their own home. A team of specialists works with each family to develop a treatment plan to help achieve your goals for your child and your family.
The community intervention teams work tirelessly to help families stay together and prevent out of home placements such as hospitalization. Following residential treatment, a child may struggle to reintegrate into the family and heal from old dynamics that did not work. Hillside is there to capitalize on the strengths of the family to provide services that help the family reach its goals.
Delivering services in the home is the best way Hillside can support children as they transition home after residential treatment or to prevent residential treatment or out of home placement. By targeting habits that caused problems for the family in the past, the community intervention team helps the family make the necessary changes and acquire the needed understanding of each other so everyone can thrive.
Leading DBT Outpatient Treatment Center
The outpatient treatment center in Buckhead provides dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) for children and their parents. We help children dealing difficult emotions working through conflict and adapting to change to reduce their stress. We teach communication and behavior management skills through the DBT model, which is highly effective at facilitating positive change.
Hillside DBT uses DBT methods to help children prepare for high school or college and overcome anxiety and depression. We help them maintain healthy interpersonal relationships and learn to balance academics with extracurricular activities.
