Devereux Georgia offers troubled male and female youth an individualized treatment program based on their diagnosis while building from their strengths and potential.
At Devereux Georgia, our treatment places emphasis on learning from the successes of today, rather than reliving the failures of the past.
Every experience throughout each day is seen as therapeutic, and every day is planned to resemble that of a healthy adolescent.
Through this innovative program, adolescents have time to internalize change, develop self-discipline and self-esteem, and practice newly acquired personal and social skills.
Devereux youth return to society as emotionally stable and vocationally able young citizens.
