Intensive Residential Treatment

DSC_0401.pngWe appreciate your interest in our Intensive Residential Treatment Program. Devereux Georgia is dedicated to providing quality services to improve the lives of the youth that we serve. We provide intensive residential treatment in a secure setting for youth ages 10 to 21 who are facing significant emotional, behavioral and intellectual/developmental challenges. Our beautiful campus offers a serene, wooded setting with a swimming pool, volleyball court, tennis court, playing field, lake and playground which allow our youth to enjoy plenty of outdoor activities.

Our school is designed to advance each student’s academic growth while providing a structured school environment. Our individualized curriculum and low teacher-to-student ratio allows our students to succeed academically.

At the heart of Devereux’s philosophy is a multidisciplinary approach to treatment, providing youth with extraordinary attention based on their individual diagnoses and medical needs. We strive to provide the highest level of clinical competence throughout all of our clinical programs which include individual therapy, group therapy, family therapy, milieu therapy, medication management, substance abuse counseling, activity therapy, 24-hour nursing coverage, and psychiatrist services 24 hours a day, 7days a week.


My child has made great changes since coming to Devereux, and I would seek help again at Devereux if he needed help.
