Devereux Georgia

When families experience crisis, children suffer most.  We can help!

The Devereux Georgia Treatment Network (Devereux Georgia) is located on a secure, tree-lined, 40-acre campus in Kennesaw, Georgia. Devereux Georgia is licensed to serve 100 children up to the age of 21, who are experiencing emotional and behavioral challenges brought on by abuse, neglect, mental illness, sexual exploitation, or intellectual/developmental disabilities. They struggle with mental health and/or emotional challenges including major depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. Symptoms of their illness often manifest in expulsion from school, additional disrupted foster care placements, and even placement in the juvenile or criminal justice system.

Devereux Georgia Campus

Devereux Georgia is a campus, not a building!

In many instances, Devereux Georgia is the last hope for many of these children.  Without the care and services we provide, these children may be lost into a world of helplessness, homelessness or crime.

We help children learn how to manage their mental, emotional and behavioral disorders.  They develop the competency and confidence to achieve once-unthinkable goals such as literacy, graduation from high school and the acquisition of basic job readiness skills, so they may lead happy, productive lives, and become self-sufficient members of the community. 

If you believe a child would benefit from our services, contact our Admissions Office for more information.
