Protecting Children, Strengthening Families
Pathways Transition Programs is a private mental health center headquartered in Downtown Decatur. Since 1991, we have been committed to providing innovative, accountable and responsive services to a diverse client population. We accept referrals for services in the following counties: Barrow, Clarke, Clayton, Cobb, Dekalb, Fayette, Fulton, Greene, Gwinnett, Henry, Jackson, Madison, Morgan, Newton, Oconee, Oglethorpe, Rockdale, and Walton counties. Our client services are offered in the home, community or one of our five offices located in Athens, Buford, Covington, Tyrone, and our main office in Decatur. Our staff consists of a diverse group of over 100 full-time professionals that include licensed psychiatrist, licensed psychologists, licensed counselors, licensed social workers and a team of highly trained and supervised behavioral aides.
Our approach to our work is based on a comprehensive, integrated model for understanding and working with clients from all walks of life — The Kaleidoscope Model — and based on the fundamental premise that our behavior patterns reflect our understanding of ourselves and the world we live in and change, and change is basically about shifting this perspective enough to risk trying new ways of coping and thriving. The techniques we use to help clients heal and learn come from a variety of sources, because what each person needs is different and there is no "one size fits all" approach. However, the choice of methods comes from our understanding, in collaboration with the client, of what they need most to regain control over the direction of their lives. The process of arriving at this shared understanding is what makes the Pathways Transition Programs approach unique.
