I can not say enough wonderful things about how caring, compassionate, hopeful and patient SLOW has been w our son. This is the first program that my son has ever successfully completed and he continues to work w Katee on an individual basis. This place believes in hope, moving forward and recovery. Beyond thankful for SLOW in my son’s life… and in ours as well
First, I must say that the mental facilities in GA are not the best in general. Having said that , Southern Live Oak Wellness was able to take my son after leaving the hospital with a mental crisis. I was able to tour the facility and meet the staff. The staff was extremely caring and attentive to our family and my son. The level of communication was outstanding and they were able to accommodate my son with some special request. My son was also assigned to an incredible therapist and lead counselor that sincerely wanted the best for him. I also appreciated the level down process which allowed the people their to gradually get back to their lives. My son was able to be released and return to his normal life. Normal meaning to realize that continued therapy is a huge part of growth.
I can only think of good experiences when I look back at my time at Southern Live Oak Wellness. The staff is extremely genuine, friendly, and committed to bettering the lives of each individual client. I have learned so much from individual therapy sessions and group processing. I have seen growth in myself here that I couldn’t imagine possible before I knew about this place. I have made great friends and this place in particular has the most “family” like feel I have ever seen in a treatment center. I will definitely miss all of the people I have met at SLOW and I am excited to move forward in my new life using all the tools I have learned here.
I can’t shame certain people, there are staff who are helpful and respectful. However, there are certain higher ups who are extremely culturally bias and is not afraid to show their authority. Staff don’t last too long, if you’re used to structure, this place is not for you. Know your policies because they will not show you and will use it against you. Thanks for stealing my money Nick, I have a God that’s bigger than yours.
I started my journey at SLOW in August of this year, and I can honestly say it was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. SLOW was my step down program that I came in from Tennessee, and I wish I could have found this place first. The staff are amazing and personable. My therapist has taken me to new elevations I’ve never thought possible. The clients were very supportive of one another and it was great to know that ppl actually cared about you. The program only works if you work the program, actually putting in the hard work and not just depending on medication to ease your anxiety and depression, but to come face to face with yourself and traumas. I would recommend SLOW to everyone in my circle, and to those that disagree just mind your business.
I have so much to say about this wonderful place, but I’m sure my words will never do my experience justice. Southern Live Oak Wellness and it’s people not only helped me find myself again, but they saved my life. I was extremely depressed and had given up, they helped remind me why life is worth living. The staff is absolutely wonderful, working relentlessly to help people through some of the hardest times in their lives. It’s clear that they have a heart for this, and create a positive, authentic, informative, incredibly supportive environment. Thank you SLOW. Please please please, of you need help, give them a call. It might save your life too.
Going to SLOW has impacted my life in ways I never thought possible. I came for help with my mental state and came out with so much more; life skills, medical advice, mental health counseling and addiction treatment. SLOW is a whole life transformation program and I highly recommend it to anyone I know! This program will find a way to get you the help you need, no matter what. The staff has dealt with mental health and life's problems first hand so they aren't just going by textbook treatment. When you think of a person that should work in mental health, you can find that person here wherever you look. The staff is 5 stars from the chef, therapists, techs, nurse practitioner, etc. Unlike any other treatment center I've encountered.
Coming to S.L.O.W. has completely changed my outlook on life. The staff were caring and attentive and everyone genuinely wanted the best for their clients. This facility has helped me find the direction I want to take and has helped me find myself once again. I would recommend this facility to anyone who is struggling with their mental health as this place will be beyond beneficial for them. That's for everything S.L.O.W.!
literally the absolute best treatment center I have ever been to. The tech staff is qualified and genuinely cares about you. the therapists are incredible too. the residential program is a great experience. I have legitimately seen a huge difference in my mental health and have a new perspective on life. take this as a sign to go if you are thinking about it!!
My name is Ryan, and I came here back in December because I needed some complex help that I never realized I needed. This place seriously ROCKS, and I recommend deeply that if you're in need of mental help, life skills, really just in need of direction and a new drive of hope, S.L.O.W. is the place you need to come to. Staff is amazing, therapists are extremely wise and helpful. This program will get to the bottom of your troubles, and change your life for the better.
I can honestly say I’m the happiest I believe I have ever been in my entire life. For those who don’t know, I was in a horribly abusive relationship for a year and a half. I had never been so low. My family saw everything happening and stepped in to save me. I was so traumatized and brain washed by my ex that even doctors suggested long term mental health rehabilitation. I went to an amazing facility in Atlanta where I met some life long friends, made some great memories and gained coping skills as well as the ability to navigate through life and protect myself from bad. Now I’m living in Atlanta, working at a job that I absolutely adore and I’m learning, growing, healing. I never thought life could be as great as it is for me today. I wouldn’t be here today without my family, the amazing staff at Southern Live Oak Wellness, the friends I made along the way, and of course my two corgis Alaska and Maverick. Thank you for helping me pave my way up here and create the life I deserve for myself!
If it weren't for SLOW,I wouldn't be alive right now. Going through this program completely changed my mental health, I was able to figure out the proper medications, and have the time and space to truly focus on myself. The group therapy sessions in particular were incredibly helpful in processing trauma and understanding my diagnosis. The staff is so friendly, and all have personal experiences regarding the importance of mental health. I would highly recommend (and have) this program to anyone who needs help
Southern Live Oak Wellness has been life changing for my sweet troubled daughter and our family. We have been through so many facilities that have not met the needs of my daughter and we had lost hope..until SLOW. Every step of her treatment from entry, billing, her ongoing treatment, and family involvement has been outstanding. My daughter is finally getting the help she needs, and we owe it all to Southern Live Oak Wellness. I thank GOD that this place was able to get my daughter there and assist her on her journey. I would recommend this place to ANYONE that has felt that the system has failed them. It was life changing.. not only to my daughter, who needed them the most, but they gave us back a sense of normalcy in what has been chaos for a very long time. If you or a family member need help, this is a place that makes treatment feel like an extension of home. Again.. life changing. Thank you from the bottom of our heart Southern Live Wellness.
Southern Live Oaks Wellness Center has truly help save my life. This has been an excellent place for me. My experience here has been amazing. The therapists are very involved and the entire staff is helpful and caring beyond belief. I know that I wouldn’t be mentally stable today if it wasn’t for this place. This treatment has helped me so much. I was so emotionally exhausted and mentally damaged when I arrived, but they helped me to find the inner wisdom, self love, and security that I needed to fight through. The staff doesn’t give up on anyone and will go above and beyond for those who are willing to do the work to better themselves. Thank you so much for caring and loving me, when I couldn’t do this for myself, I am eternally grateful ❤️
