Why We're The Best Rehab In Atlanta, Georgia
Our Approach To Treating Addiction
The Summit Wellness Group’s outpatient programs are based on a highly individualized approach to treating addiction that is designed to meet the unique needs of each client – all while providing an incredible, one-of-a-kind environment where clients feel safe, supported and loved throughout their recovery journeys. We’re open to both 12-step and non-12-step rehab approaches.
Our Treatment Services
Psychological and behavioral therapies and methodologies continue to evolve with each passing year. The Summit Wellness Group’s team of expert clinicians utilize the following therapies to treat our clients:
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). A well-known form of psychotherapy focused on modifying dysfunctional and harmful emotions, thoughts, and behaviors by closely evaluating and uprooting negative and/or irrational beliefs. During the process of working with one of The Summit Wellness Group’s therapists, CBT helps the client become aware of negative or otherwise inaccurate thinking so that he or she may address challenging situations more effectively.
- Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). A type of CBT whose goal is to provide the client with mechanisms for remaining in the present moment, regulating emotions, coping with stress in a healthy manner, and improving interpersonal relationships. Originally intended for sufferers of borderline personality disorder (BPD), it has since been effectively adapted for clients with substance abuse.
- Group Therapy. A form of counseling involving regular sessions during which one or more of The Summit Wellness Group’s Master Level (or above) clinicians work with multiple substance abuse sufferers simultaneously. Advantages of this type of treatment include empowerment of group members through encouragement to provide mutual assistance and feedback, provision of peer motivation, support and accountability to enable individuals to reach and maintain recovery goals, and the ability of one or more therapists to treat multiple patients in one session, allowing for greater efficiency of resources and quicker access to therapy.
- Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) A form of psychotherapy in which the patient is prompted to recall distressing images while the therapist attempts to use external stimuli in order to facilitate bilateral stimulation, such as side-to-side eye movements or the tapping of one’s hands. Practitioners of EMDR strive to reduce subjective distress within patients and strengthen their adaptive beliefs relative to traumatic events they have experienced. While there is not a tremendous amount of evidence that EDMR is effective in treating substance abuse, it has proven to be quite useful in treating anxiety and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) from which individuals with substance abuse disorder often suffer.
- Experiential Therapy. A type of therapy involving physical, hands-on activities or experiences which provide interactive opportunities for patients to transcend communicative barriers and open up more effectively to therapists. This type of therapy is extremely valuable for patients who have difficulty discussing painful events or deep emotions.

We offer many different groups as part of our comprehensive curriculum. Our groups occur daily and are a primary focus of our program. We offer relapse prevention groups, early recovery skills, neurobiology education, co-dependency education, healthy living skills, co-occurring illnesses education, mindfulness and grief and loss groups. The level of care (PHP, IOP, OP) that the individual is attending will determine the amount of hours the client attends group per week.
Family Therapy / Family Night
Addiction is very much a family disease. In addition to focused individual family therapy, we host free bi-weekly family support groups for client’s loved ones to gain knowledge on the disease and build a strong community in the area.
Family night is a time for families and loved ones of individuals struggling with addiction to come together and learn more about what their loved one is going through and to build a support system within the community.
Any approach combining counseling and behavioral therapy with medications in the treatment of substance use disorders. The medications utilized in this type of treatment typically resemble the patient’s drug of choice in certain ways, but is much safer and easier to monitor and control. An example of a widely-applied MAT is the use of buprenorphine (Suboxone) to suppress cravings for, and withdrawal symptoms of, opioids.
A mind-body technique involving the use of visual or auditory feedback for the purpose of gaining control over certain involuntary bodily functions including, but not limited to, heart rate, breathing rate, skin temperature, muscle tension, blood flow, blood pressure and pain perception. Biofeedback can be useful in treating substance abuse patients because it enables them to get a better understanding of their own involuntary bodily functions, which can also assist therapists in more adequately customizing a treatment plan to best suit the patient’s needs.
