Fall 2020: Potomac Programs Transitions to Embark Behavioral Health
Due to COVID-19, We Are Now Offering Our Intensive Outpatient Program via Video Chat.
Embark at Atlanta North
Embark at Atlanta North—located just outside the Atlanta, GA metro area — offers outpatient behavioral health services and support for teens, ages 13-27, struggling with mental health and/or substance use issues.
Depression, anxiety and suicide are on the rise and young people are at risk today more than ever before. Too many teens and young adults go through life suffering from trauma, loneliness, intense social pressure, feelings of worthlessness, anxiety, depression and shame. It doesn’t have to be this way.
Our outpatient program allows your family to get the help they need locally, in your own community, and includes individual, family and group therapy, therapeutic/peer mentoring and parent coaching. We provide a safe, nurturing and healing environment to help families and their children address and overcome the following mental health issues that may be affecting their everyday lives.
Why Choose Embark at Atlanta North?
Centrally located just outside the perimeter of the Atlanta metro area, and less than an hour from the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains—our healthy, warm environment provides the idyllic setting for structured, consistent therapeutic and recreational care and support.
Since schedules can be hectic, we provide both day and evening programming as a way to remove further barriers to treatment. Also, in order to truly be adaptive in supporting our clients and provide additional flexibility to help us meet our clients’ unique needs, we offer virtual teletherapy services as an alternative to our in-person sessions.
Therapy is much more than talking. When focused on an activity or task, rather than the therapy itself, people tend to be less guarded, providing more authentic reactions and emotions. We engage your child’s physical and emotional capacities with a variety of hands-on activities, experiences, creative arts, family and team challenges and mindfulness exercises that provide interactive opportunities for them to open up and share.
Family Systems Approach
We believe that working with the entire family unit, both the child and family members, is essential to the healing process. This tailored approach allows the family to work together to help the child and relieve the strain on the family. Family members explore their individual roles within the family, learn how their individual actions affect each other and discover ways to support and help each other in order to restore family relationships and rebuild a healthy family system.
