Georgia Regional Hospital

, The Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities

Various Locations, GA


Activity Therapy has become an integral part of the rehabilitation process for individuals with physical/psychological disabilities or mental illness. Working through the Georgia State Financing & Investment Commission, the Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities (DBHDD) renovated 3 of their hospitals to have a psychosocial treatment mall and recreational center - encouraging the community through programs that can help heal the mind.


These facilities accommodate active recovery-oriented courses that prepare individuals for their transition back into the community by allowing them to cultivate skills and generate motivation necessary to fully participate in and manage their wellness once discharged from institutionalized care.

While these hospitals have unique missions, values and services they are each a vital part of the DBHDD’s continuum of care, offering security and treatment integrated spaces to ensure a supportive, therapeutic and violence-free environment where people heal in an atmosphere of mutual respect and dignity.
