Welcome Message

Welcome to Pathways Center, a premier behavioral health care organization serving children, adolescents, and adults addressing an array of mental health and substance abuse issues since 1972. 

We take pride in our ability to identify the needs of individuals that seek services from our organization.  Our team consists of a number of qualified professionals including Psychiatrists, Nurses, Licensed Clinicians, and experienced case managers that work together to provide high quality care.  We offer services ranging from crisis stabilization and residential programs to basic outpatient care. 

Pathways Center collaborates with many community agencies around the state to provide a holistic and comprehensive approach to facilitating growth and progress toward meeting treatment goals for the people we serve.

Our mission is simple; to provide the highest quality of clinical care, serve as many individuals as possible, and to do so in a fiscally and clinically responsible manner. Pathways Center is the first agency of its kind in the State of Georgia to receive national accreditation by “The Rehabilitation Accreditation Commission” (CARF) in 1997.  This accreditation validates our expertise and professionalism in providing the highest quality of services to the community.

Our success over the years has been and continues to be attributed to our employees.  Our culture differentiates us from all other behavioral healthcare organizations.   Working for Pathways Center is an opportunity to serve and help people.  It is much more than a job.  It is a way of life.

I invite you to take time to browse our website and learn more about our organization.
