Feeling trapped by your dependence on drugs or alcohol? Not sure where to turn? If you or a loved one are faced with an addictive disease, there is help. Avita Community Partners offers addictive disease support to individuals and families in the northeast Georgia area. Our addictive disease services are based on two models:
The Recovery Model which states that people have the potential to grow, learn and heal and should be an active partner in their treatment and recovery by identifying their wants, needs, and goals.
The Episodes of Treatment Model that follows the idea that needs will vary over time and clients can leave our services when they’re no longer needed but can return if the need arises.
