Helping Hands Community Based Services is a CARF-accredited outpatient treatment facility for substance abuse and behavioral health in College Park, Georgia. With over 30 years of combined experience, the program’s clinical team focuses on helping addicts, families and the community on a self-referred and court-ordered basis. In addition to being members of several federal, state and local organizations, Helping Hands is also a CORE Provider for the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities.

Treatment and Staff

After an initial assessment, clients are given an individualized treatment plan designed to best serve their needs. The main track is the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), which meets Monday through Thursday from either 9 am to 1 pm or 2 to 6 pm. Treatment is available for both individuals and families and consists of group therapy using the Matrix Model and rooted in evidence-based methods such as CBT. Clients can add individual therapy to their plan as necessary. 

Twelve-step support is also a major component of the program. Within the first month, clients are expected to choose an outside peer-support program to participate in—typically AA or NA. However, not all treatment plans are abstinence-based; in some cases, a harm reduction model may be deemed more appropriate. Also, while some mental heath issues are addressed, clients with more severe co-occurring disorders may be better served at a facility with more comprehensive dual diagnosis support.

The IOP has three main phases that decrease in intensity as clients progress, each lasting either 24 or 12 weeks. As clients work through the phases, groups tend to focus more on relapse prevention and discharge planning.

Staff consists of LPNs, LCSWs and Master’s-level clinicians.


Other services include individualized intervention for all stages of recovery—pre-recovery preparation, initiation of recovery, continuing recovery and post-relapse. There is also a six- to eight-week anger management course (generally court-ordered) that can be completed for a certificate.

For those who complete primary care programs, aftercare is included and lasts for three to six months.

In Summary

In all, Helping Hands Community Based Services offers solid treatment for drug and alcohol addiction and other related issues. With flexible hours to fit a number of schedules, the programs have a good a balance of proven therapeutic practices in conjunction with 12-step support. The option to work within a harm reduction model is also a somewhat unique feature and could prove to be valuable to those who qualify. Though those with co-occurring disorders may need more comprehensive treatment, Helping Hands Community Based Services remains an affordable option for those in the area.
