CETPA is a private, nonprofit counseling services specializing in mental health, addictions and emotional problems.  CETPA has been designed, from the beginning, to properly assess clients in their own language and determining what services offered by CETPA would be most beneficial or, if the client is not appropriate for our services, to make referrals to the proper agencies.
Our services begin with the initial call or drop-in visit, followed by the assessment, admission, treatment planning, treatment, referral, discharge and continuing care. The levels of care recommended to a client are determined by a multidisciplinary team that includes a psychiatrist, a nurse, licensed counselors, master level clinicians and certified addiction counselors.
CETPA provides, or encourages its staff to attend conferences, and other educational activities to further their knowledge and understanding of addiction, mental health and family violence, including new proven methods and best practices for treatment and prevention.
We utilize a variety of treatment and therapeutic services to enable clients to function alcohol and drug free and/or to learn social and psychological skills to improve their overall functioning in life. Our services include individual counseling, group counseling, family counseling, supportive counseling, substance abuse education and prevention, family  violence groups, psycho-educational groups, evaluations, assessments and referrals.
Our program addresses behavioral health issues such as depression,anxiety, social phobia, substance abuse and addiction for adults and adolescents.
CETPA provides services in Spanish for Spanish speaking consumers or bilingual consumers who, to avoid misunderstanding, prefer to communicate in Spanish. We dedicate a large portion of our resources to meet the linguistic need for behavioral health services in Georgia since we are the only licensed and accredited Latino behavioral health facility in the state. Services are also available in English.
CETPA and its employees are dedicated to improving patient outcomes by ensuring we adhere to human, civil, constitutional, statutory and emotional rights. All employees who have direct contact with clients are bilingual. CETPA includes community leaders, community members and families as part of the decision making process to determine need.
