Anchor Hospital

5454 Yorktowne Drive, Atlanta, Georgia, 30349
The Anchor Hospital campus of the Southern Crescent Behavioral Health System specializes in treating mental health and substance abuse issues in adults. The facility offers a full continuum of care in a safe and secluded setting, including confidential assessments, detoxification, inpatient treatment, partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient services. Led by a psychiatrist or addictionologist, skilled multi-disciplinary teams ensure that each and every patient receives the highest quality care and most current clinical treatments.

Facility Highlights

  • Expressive Therapy
  • Family Sessions
  • Relapse Prevention


  • Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT)

    Also called “shock therapy,” electroconvulsive therapy uses electricity applied to the brain to bring about a seizure that, research shows, can be helpful in overcoming debilitating, treatment-resistant depression.
  • Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

    Patients who undergo intensive outpatient treatment continue to live at home and sometimes go to school or work while participating in a highly structured treatment protocol that is focused on ending substance abuse. Programs vary in terms of how much treatment patients receive, how often and for how long. Some facilities design individualized intensive outpatient treatment programs.

It's in a poor area and lots of people on fixed income makes the facility seem like 2nd class treatment. Good counselors. Such a bad area, very rundown area.

She reported a positive experience. Professional, experienced staff. Unknown,it has many years since her treatment.
    My husband was in this facility 4 times this year 2016. He hasn\'t complained about the facility or the staff. He was so distraught with his mental depression and anxiety that I don\'t know if he actually noticed all the other bad things that others have described about Anchor. I am the wife and I had several upsets with the way this hospital is actually ran. We were told that visitation was on Wednesdays and Saturdays between 6:00 - 7:30. n I would ALWAYS get there early to be able to spend all the time I could with my husband. Every time I came I had to set in the lobby until they decided to take me back to the lunch room which one time was at 7:15. When walking to the lunch room I started balling my eyes out because at this time I only had 15 to spend with my husband. The staff was VERY nice and place my husband and I in a room by ourselves so that I could stay longer. Another time they actually took me to the lunch room early THEN didn\'t bring my husband to see me until 6:55. My biggest upset is when you can\'t get anyone to talk to you about your husband progress and what you need to do when he comes home. Duh, don\'t you think that\'s important?!?!?!?!?
      Wonderful program wish it was longterm. Classes are awesome as well as the staff.
        This is the best way to get your mind wright and I could not ask for a better staff
