For over 30 years, our mental health specialists and psychiatrists have provided individualized treatment plans for our patients, giving them the best chances of a full recovery and stability.

Personalized Mental Health Treatment in Macon

In everything we do, confidentiality and sensitivity are always at the forefront of our minds. Whether your treatment is in an intensive inpatient program or intensive outpatient program for substance abuse, we emphasize the importance of individualized care so that you can return to your normal life as quickly as possible. Utilizing independent, clinical patient-outcomes studies, our psychiatric team has demonstrated significant improvement in patients’ symptoms between admission and discharge.

Our treatment methods include medication management, individual group and family therapies, classes in coping skills and a wide range of therapeutic activities.

Our psychiatric and substance abuse programs may be what you need if you experience:

  • Feelings of sadness, anxiety or emptiness
  • Changes in sleep patterns
  • Changes in weight or appetite
  • Significant changes in weight or appetite
  • Loss of interest in hobbies or other activities
  • Restless and irritability
  • Fatigue or loss of energy
  • Thoughts of suicide
  • Trouble concentrating, remembering or making decisions

Mental Health Life-Line

We sponsor a 24 hours a day, seven days a week telephone resource for people who are struggling with a mental health disorder. This community resource offers confidential psychiatric services free of charge for residents of Macon and the surrounding area.

Inpatient Care for Behavioral Health Disorders

Our inpatient psychiatric program allows patients to begin treatment for behavioral health disorders in an intensive therapeutic environment where they are cared for by a compassionate staff 24/7.

Partial Hospitalization

This program offers the same quality mental health treatment as our inpatient program, but allows patients to return home in the evening to be with family and friends. This is flexible option for patients who need more structure than outpatient treatment can provide, but do not require constant supervision from a mental health counselor.

Substance Abuse Treatment

Substance abuse can destroy the life of the individual with a dependency on alcohol, cocaine, crack, marijuana, ecstasy, amphetamines, or prescription medications. It can destroy the lives of their family and friends also. Coliseum Center for Behavioral Health serves patients with a wide range of chemical dependency problems that include alcohol and drug abuse and dependency. Coliseum Center for Behavioral Health also treats individuals who have psychiatric problems along with chemical dependency. From admission to discharge, substance abuse treatment at Coliseum Center for Behavioral Health focuses on family involvement in the recovery process.

S.T.A.R. Military and Veteran Wellness Program

Nightmares, flashbacks, depression, anxiety -- many service members and veterans struggle with these and other symptoms every day. If you've served your country and are now dealing with post-traumatic stress (PTS), depression, transition issues, a drug or alcohol addiction, or other mental health issues, don't go it alone. Turn to people who know what you're going through, and more importantly, how to help you overcome it.

Coliseum Center for Behavioral Health's STAR (Stress, Trauma, Addiction, Recovery) program is the only one of its kind in the middle Georgia area. Determined to provide the best care to those who have served, Coliseum has created a program that allows qualified service members and veterans to reside on their own dedicated unit. Our average length of stay is 28 days and we are proud to offer around-the-clock contact with appropriate military staff or primary care providers to aid in a seamless transition back to duty and/or to a productive life.

Our ten-bed unit provides 24-hour care and treatment for current and former military members with service- or transition-related mental health challenges, including those with co-occurring addictions.
