At The Recovery Village Atlanta, our full continuum of treatment programs are led by addiction experts and personalized to meet your specific needs.

Each person’s addiction is unique, so there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to rehab treatment and recovery. Instead, effective treatment addresses a wide range of factors that can contribute to substance use, such as underlying health concerns, past traumas and unhealthy coping mechanisms. 

At The Recovery Village Atlanta, our multidisciplinary teams of health experts use evidence-based methods to help people achieve lasting addiction recovery. We do so by helping clients repair all aspects of their lives, giving them tools and resources they can use to overcome challenging situations and avoid relapse in the future. This approach is bolstered by our full continuum of care, which allows clients to receive the right amount of support, independence and care in each stage of recovery. 

Ranging from medical detox to long-term aftercare, treatment programs at The Recovery Village Atlanta are equipped to address a wide variety of substance addictions, mental health concerns and related needs.

Medical Detox

Withdrawal symptoms that arise when quitting certain substances, such as alcohol or opioids, can be incredibly uncomfortable and even life-threatening in some cases. Paired with intense cravings, these symptoms can easily lead someone to relapse in an attempt to ease the discomfort. 

In a medical detox program, health professionals work to make the withdrawal and detox process as safe and comfortable as possible. Clients receive around-the-clock medical supervision and treatment for emerging withdrawal symptoms, reducing the risk of relapse and making the detox process easier to endure.

Residential Rehab

In most situations, clients will begin residential treatment following the completion of detox. Residential rehab, also known as residential treatment, provides intensive care to those in the early stages of recovery. Clients live onsite at the rehab facility and attend a rigid schedule of doctor appointments, therapy sessions, group meetings and other treatment modalities.

Residential rehab offers a safe, comfortable environment that eliminates the triggers of the outside world. This allows each client to focus solely on their recovery, address the root causes of their addiction and begin learning how they can cope with difficult situations when they return to their daily life.

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

Partial hospitalization programs (PHPs) provide an intermediary step between residential and outpatient care. These programs are best suited to those who do not require the intensive treatment of residential care but still need the onsite support services offered at the rehab facility. Clients in PHP have less rigorous treatment schedules and more independence in their recovery.

People with supportive home environments may be able to return home in the evenings after attending treatment sessions throughout the day. Those who need a more supportive living space may stay at the facility overnight while in PHP treatment.

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) serves many different purposes in a rehab setting. It can help reduce the discomfort of withdrawal and allow people to gradually taper off the use of more powerful drugs. 

For people addicted to opioids like heroin or prescription painkillers, MAT can include medications like methadone or Suboxone. These are commonly used as opioid replacement therapy, as they reduce cravings and help prevent the risk of relapse. They do not have the same euphoric effects as other opioids and are difficult to abuse, so many people with opioid addiction continue MAT over the long term. 

For people addicted to alcohol, MAT can involve acamprosate, naltrexone or disulfiram. These medications may reduce cravings or create unpleasant effects when the person drinks alcohol to reduce the chance of relapse.  

Dual Diagnosis

Substance abuse and addiction often stem from undiagnosed mental health conditions like depression or anxiety. Substance use can cause mental health concerns to develop as well. For addiction recovery to be effective, these underlying concerns must be addressed. Dual diagnosis care involves treating mental health symptoms and addiction simultaneously through therapy, counseling, medication and ongoing support services. This program is often combined with other levels of care, like residential.


Telehealth services help people receive life-saving care from the comfort of home. Depending on the treatment program, clients in rehab may be able to attend virtual appointments with doctors, therapists, substance abuse counselors and other treatment providers. Teletherapy can be especially beneficial during the aftercare stage of recovery, as it allows clients to continue working on coping strategies and find ways to manage difficult situations that emerge in their post-rehab life.

Aftercare and Recovery

Receiving treatment at a licensed rehab facility is just the first step of the recovery journey. Recovery is a lifelong process that requires ongoing maintenance and support, which is why each of our clients receives an individualized aftercare plan following rehab treatment. Aftercare services may include follow-up appointments, alumni events, peer support group meetings, relapse prevention plans, counseling sessions and more.

Family Programs

When someone struggles with drugs or alcohol, it’s common for their relationships with friends, family members and loved ones to suffer. Part of recovery involves repairing these bonds, addressing trust concerns and creating a better foundation for communication. We offer family and couples therapy to help clients and their loved ones begin to heal from the damage caused by addiction.
