Substance Abuse Treatment

Devereux Georgia recognizes that many youth struggle with co-occurring mental health and substance abuse challenges. In order to address these treatment needs, Devereux offers a substance abuse treatment track designed to meet the recovery needs of each individual youth facing the challenges of substance abuse or dependence.

Youth who are at risk for substance abuse are assessed using the Substance Abuse Subtle Screening Inventory (SASSI). The Substance Abuse Treatment track includes weekly group therapy that targets substance abuse education, as well as an opportunity to identify and address the emotional and social experiences that led to substance abuse or dependence. Youth who meet the criteria for a substance abuse disorder receive more intensive group therapy using the MATRIX model as well as individualized therapy addressing substance abuse risk factors and an individualized relapse prevention plan.


I came seeking treatment and now I am leaving feeling healthy, stable and normal for once. Staff have helped me reach my goals and I am very grateful for the consistent patience and advice. I feel so much more myself again : ) Katie
