Substance Abuse Treatment Program

sadnessAddictive Disease Outpatient Services (ADOPS) provides substance abuse services to clients 18 and older. Our services are provided at the outpatient clinic and include service plan development, individual counseling, family counseling and training, group counseling and training, and crisis intervention. We offer a variety of programs in order to provide the proper service and treatment to our consumers. Whether you or your family member is needing help, we can provide help from temporary housing to daily group discussions.

The following is an overview of our services:

  • The Hope House and Recovery House
    • These homes are temporary places consumer’s can live to help them remove substance as a barrier. These services help individuals to get back to their natural communities and help them find permanent, stable housing.
  • Request for Work (RFW): Transitional Housing Program
    • The Transitional Housing Program provides stable housing that supports the client while continuing to achieve self-sufficiency through employment, vocation, and permanent housing.
  • Addictive Diseases (A&D) Transitional
    • The A&D services help link individuals to permanent and stable housing. Individuals in this program must also participate in the A&D Intensive Outpatient Program (SAIOP).
  • SA Intensive Outpatient Program (SAIOP)
    • This program helps provide substance abuse and relapse prevention skills training and counseling.
  • Addictive Diseases Support Services (ADSS) Group/Individual
    • This service helps to prevent a relapse while providing additional skill building discussions, resource coordination, and linking consumers to community resources and supporting them through counseling services.

Treatment Process

We utilize a holistic approach through 12-Step system by developing a recover plan and healthy coping skills to avoid relapse and dependence. The treatment plan will be initiated upon enrollment, and the consumer will be assigned to an appropriate level of care in order to meet their needs. A complete treatment plan will be approved by the clinical doctor within 30 days of admission. Daily attendance of each individual participating in treatment will be documented showing the number of hours the consumer has attended.


The administrative building for Addictive Disease Services is located at 900 Barrows Ferry Road, Milledgeville, Georgia.
