Breakthru House transforms the lives of women and their children struggling with drug and alcohol addiction by providing a long-term residential program to empower women to achieve physical, emotional, and spiritual healing through recovery.
Licensed as a Drug Abuse Treatment Program by the Georgia Department of Community Health, Breakthru House is approved as an Intensive Recovery Residence by the Board of Pardons and Paroles and is a founding member of the Georgia Association of Recovery Residences.
The Breakthru House campus is located in south DeKalb County. The campus consists of an administrative building (treatment and staff office space), four residential homes, an art studio and a 19-plot garden.
Breakthru House is nestled in a flourishing community with available green space for experiential therapies and activities inclusive of a 12-step walking trail for outside groups and family engagement. The campus is accessible by public transportation (MARTA), Atlanta Preparatory School of Arts and other needed social services and resources.
Our services are available to women and their children who are in need of addiction treatment and have no means to afford it.
Breakthru House’s mission is to provide gender specific comprehensive treatment to women and their children who present with the co-occurring disorders of substance abuse, mental illness, poverty, homelessness and trauma. This population is often underserved due to the complexities of their needs and the barriers they face with limited access to comprehensive services.
For the past 49 years, BTH has positioned itself to treat and empower women of all ages and cultures with the tools needed to enhance their quality of life to regain self-worth, self-sufficiency, and sober living.
Our objectives are met by providing direct integrative mental health, intensive substance abuse treatment and recovery supports. To determine the clients’ needs and levels of care, each client is evaluated for therapeutic services, community linkage and monitoring.
The delivery of evidenced-based clinical care is composed of 25 hours of weekly treatment (including individual and group therapy) and an additional 15 hours of recovery supports including case management services.
