Addiction Services

Addiction Care in Your Neighborhood

Our team offers hope in the face of addiction. We provide judgment-free  treatment to manage substance use. Our services are designed for individuals ages 14 and older. We specialize in the treatment of addiction and mental health disorders. 

When addiction occurs simultaneously as a mental health disorder, this is known as having a "dual diagnosis.” People with a dual diagnosis often face a high level of stress. To achieve long-term recovery, treatment should include both conditions. 

A strong support system is essential for long-term recovery. No one support system will be the same. However, a robust support system often includes friends, family, healthcare providers and addiction specialists. During treatment, patients learn new skills to foster healthy relationships. 

We’ve teamed up with the best to provide excellent care for our patients facing addiction. Emory Healthcare is joining forces with the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation. The Addiction Alliance of Georgia is a community-based model that includes:

  • Addiction-focused treatment
  • Prevention
  • Research
  • Education

Together, we offer a comprehensive approach to addiction in Georgia.  Please visit AddictionAllianceofGeorgia.org to learn more.

Emory Adolescent Substance Use Treatment Service

Emory Adolescent Substance Use Treatment Services (EAST) is a division of the Emory Addiction Center. EAST treats people 14-26 years of age. Our team includes clinical experts in addiction care and mental health.

We use a model for substance use treatment that focusses on how thoughts and emotions affect behavior. Our approach helps patients build skills to prevent using. We focus on identifying triggers for substance use. Our team teaches everyday strategies to resist the pressures to use.

We believe that an individual’s background and belief systems play a role in personalized care. Our approach respects the unique nature of each patient’s recovery.

Patients are encouraged to join community support groups to strengthen their support network. Support groups are useful both during and after treatment.
