Positive Growth Inc. professional staff work collaboratively with consumers and families to address issues that hinder consumers from living a quality/productive life; to reduce the need for out-of–home placement or separating family members (particularly inpatient hospitalization) with children and youth with mental health diagnoses. To accomplish this, Positive Growth provides outpatient services aimed at restoring, enhancing, or maintaining consumers, the highest level of functioning and preventing and/or decreasing psychiatric hospital admission. These consumer-directed services should build upon the strengths, needs, abilities, and preferences of the individual.
Consumers who qualify for and would benefit from outpatient programming are identified through initial and ongoing assessments designed to identify the needs of the consumer. A discussion is held with each consumer regarding available services and an Individual Service Recovery Plan (ISRP) is developed identifying consumer goals and services. Consumer choice and participation in the development of goals and services are directed toward optimizing the empowerment of the individuals.
When deciding whether an individual is eligible for services, Positive Growth considers the problems and issues that the consumer face; and the risks of the consumer’s independence or health. In order to efficiently and expeditiously address the needs of the consumer seeking assistance, a quick assessment of the presenting circumstances is warranted. A brief assessment is initiated by a designated mental health professional on the consumer who present for services or who are referred for an evaluation. The assessment will determine the need for services and which service and/or program is adequate for the client. Other eligibility criteria are:
- Proof of financial eligibility for services (to include private and/or public insurance)
- Mental health needs must meet APS mandated criteria (target population)
- Must meet criteria for admission to the specific program
We accept referrals and are a service provider for Private Insurance, County Social Service & Corrections agencies, Schools, Public and Private Clinics/Hospitals from the Metro Atlanta Areas to name a few. Services are offered on an income-based sliding scale to endure that everyone gets the help they need regardless of income.
