Admissions Process

Navigating mental health treatment admissions can be confusing. If you or a family member are struggling with any mental health issue, please reach out to us immediately. We have treatment professionals available around the clock to speak with you.

The first step in our admissions process is a thorough assessment to determine clinical needs and find the appropriate level of care. Your assessment will be entirely confidential; we will evaluate your behavioral health history to determine the best step towards the help you deserve.

We have mental health treatment admissions staff available around the clock to facilitate 24/7 intake and admissions. Our team will be in contact with you every step of the way, to make the process as smooth as possible

Southern Live Oak Wellness is located outside of Atlanta, Georgia and serves men and women struggling with mental illness ages 18 and above.

We accept payment through private insurance or self-pay payments. SLOW understands that mental health crises do not run on a schedule, so we are available around the clock to assist with determining cost, to work with your insurance company, and to help calculate out-of-pocket expenses. We are committed to working with families or individuals on a case-by-case basis regarding their financial situation.

Upon Admission

From the second you enter our doors we want to set you up with the highest possible chance of recovery. Our intake process ensures you’re getting the correct care that you need without causing any stress or confusion.


Once you admit, we will go through any previous medical records while completing a current assessment to determine the best course of treatment moving forward.

Genomind testing

SLOW has teamed up with Genomind to offer all of our patients genetic tests that help determine the best medication for an individual based on their DNA profile.

Treatment Plan

We're all working towards a common goal, but our roads to success may be different. Once we assess each individual we put together a unique individualized program based on diagnosis and past treatments. ]
