Welcome to Addiction Services 

Our team provides you with a multidisciplinary treatment approach to manage substance use (individuals ages 14 and older). We specialize in treatment for individuals with both addiction and psychiatric disorders, identified as having a "dual diagnosis" or a "co-occurring disorder."

People with "dual diagnosis" often face various psychosocial stressors. With the simultaneous treatment of both conditions, successful long-term recovery often occurs. Long-term recovery involves a strong recovery support network and learning healthy skills that influence relationships and decision-making.

Emory Adolescent Substance Use Treatment Service

Emory Adolescent Substance Use Treatment Services (EAST) is a specialized division of Addiction Services and treats people 14-26 years of age. Our multidisciplinary team consists of board-certified addiction psychiatrists/child psychiatrists, licensed clinical social workers, and psychologists.

Our clinicians utilize the Community Reinforcement Approach (CRA), a cognitive-behavioral model for substance use treatment. This approach helps patients develop and strengthen relapse prevention skills by identifying external and internal triggers for use, patterns of using behavior, consequences of use, and practical techniques in resisting pressures to use. We believe that an individual’s culture, background, family, and belief systems are important aspects of individualized care.
Patients are also strongly encouraged to participate in community support groups to develop and strengthen their support network while in and after treatment.
