Emory Healthcare and the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation are joining forces to build a unique strategic alliance that creates a comprehensive approach to addiction in the state of Georgia. The Addiction Alliance of Georgia is a collaborative, community-based model that integrates addiction-focused treatment, prevention, research, and educational initiatives. 

Emory Adolescent Substance Use Treatment Services (EAST) is a specialized division of the Emory Addiction Center 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.
