About Our Facility

Riverside Treatment Center at Flint River Hospital offers a continuum of services to help adults who are experiencing those behavioral, emotional or addictive problems that can lead to fractured lives. Our team of professionals includes board-certified psychiatrists, master’s – level clinical therapists, case managers, nurses, and mental health associates who are here to help people with their behavioral health problems. Our staff is here to help people reconnect with their families, friends, and employers so that they may lead productive lives.

Since mental health issues occur across a spectrum, from mild to severe, we tailor our services for each person. Our programs are based upon the concept that each person has an inherent capacity to learn and grow, and designed to meet the unique needs of each person and family. With each program, we offer diagnostic and evaluation services, medication management, individual, family and group therapy, recreational therapy, dietary services, case management and discharge planning.

Physicians

At Riverside Treatment Center, we acknowledge that our employees stand as our greatest asset and our physicians are no exception. Our physicians are recognized throughout the state of Georgia as dedicated and experienced professionals in the field of mental health.
