Our Programs and Services

Intensive Residential Treatment

Devereux Georgia is committed to providing high-quality, evidence-based programs and services to help improve the lives of children, adolescents and young adults. We offer intensive residential treatment for youth, ages 10 to 21, who are struggling with significant emotional, behavioral and intellectual/developmental challenges. Our beautiful campus located in a serene, wooded setting offers a swimming pool, volleyball court, tennis court, playing field, lake and playground, which allow our youth the opportunity to enjoy plenty of outdoor activities.

Specialty Foster Care

We provide specialty foster care services for youth and families in the metro Atlanta region and the state of Georgia. Our services, which are uniquely focused on helping children, teens and young adults with special medical, psychological, social and emotional needs, provide youth with a family-based treatment alternative to more intensive levels of care.

Residential Group Homes

Our residential group home program, officially named Devereux Cottages, serves girls and boys, ages 14 to 18, who need maximum oversight, including 24-hour supervision in a home-like environment. Youth reside in gender-specific cottages. Each cottage contains eight beds and includes a common living area, dining area, laundry room, bathrooms/showers, administrative space and a fully-equipped kitchen.

School and Education

Devereux’s on-site accredited school offers small class sizes and access to regular and special education services. In addition, youth receive tutoring as needed. Older individuals can participate in career technical education services to explore their professional interests and learn valuable and marketable job skills. Youth enrolled in this program have the opportunity to participate in “real life” work settings, such as food service, information technology and cosmetology. These experiences promote teamwork, individuality and the achievement of personal goals. Youth also may earn a job readiness certificate that is nationally recognized by employers.
