Specializing in Men

Atlanta Mission, which was formerly called Atlanta Union Mission, was initially established in 1938 as just a soup kitchen. Along the way, Atlanta Mission decided to expand our services to better serve the people we set out to help in the first place. And no longer were just men the ones we wanted to help, but women and children as well. Today, Atlanta Mission provides people in Atlanta and the metropolitan area with emergency shelter, residential discipleship, job attainment services and transitional housing. Our Christian non-profit organization provides not only a place to go, but also life resources for more than 950 homeless men, women and children on a daily basis.

It has been proven through extensive studies that a holistic treatment approach to treatment empowers an individual to recognize and accept his addiction more openly and successfully. Our goal is to establish for each patient a recovery program predicated on abstinence, and to make it absolutely clear that abstinence demands a commitment on his part. Honesty and inner discipline are the keys to success. We seek to inspire our patients to embrace that inner commitment; we want every abuser of drugs or alcohol who comes to Astoria Pointe to leave our center a strong, positive and renewed person.

Welcome to our treatment center. The Georgia Board of Pharmacy, Drug Enforcement Agency, the Georgia Department of Human Resources, and the Joint Commission for the Accreditation of Health Care Organizations regulate our program on a regular basis, and ensure that we continue to provide quality care to those suffering from opiate addiction. Our mission at DM & ADR is to provide a therapeutic environment in which to treat one's addiction to pain medication and/or heroin. We will strive to reduce the risks associated with this addiction by providing education, individual counseling, support groups, and medication therapy. We aim for our patients to regain control of their lives and maintain healthy, functional lifestyles. We will offer all the assistance possible to help patients regain the desire and self-esteem to improve their lives. We will use methadone as the primary intervention to stabilize a person physically, to interrupt the pattern of drug seeking behavior and craving, and then, utilizing group therapy and counseling, begin the process of recovery by healing the mind, body, and spirit.

Opiate addiction is a primary, progressive, chronic, relapsing disease that may end in death, if left untreated. Addiction to opiates involves loss of personal control, compulsive behavior, and tolerance to opiates. Individuals dependent upon these drugs continue to use opiates and other drugs despite disastrous personal consequences.

Intervention and treatment with methadone maintenance, education, counseling, medical and nursing care, group therapy, and peer support afford the addicted person the best opportunity to save their own life, and embark on a life of recovery.
