Ascensa Health provides a behavioral health system of care that sustains recovery from addiction and returns individuals to their communities and families.



Based in Metro Atlanta, Ascensa Health provides integrated care for addiction, co-occurring mental health disorders and physical health conditions. Our programs and services are based on the belief that addiction is a disease. We focus on treating the whole person and we support people over a lifetime of recovery. 


Open to anyone seeking treatment for addiction, Ascensa Health serves approximately 1,500 individuals per year. Most people who come to Ascensa Health are low-income men and women, veterans and families with children. Many are experiencing homelessness, do not have health insurance, or cannot afford life-saving treatment. In 2021, 60% of our clients had a chronic health condition in addition to substance use disorder, and 54% of clients have a co-occurring mental health disorder.


In 2021, we helped over 800 individuals and families recover from addiction. Our outcomes demonstrate our commitment to our clients and our community:

  • 100% of clients were below poverty level at admission, however, only 19% were below poverty at discharge
  • 93% of clients who entered our Employment Services program became employed
  • 86% of employed clients improved their job position and/or income
  • 93% of clients exited our Residential Treatment programs to permanent housing
  • 88% of clients who were previously experiencing homelessness exited our Residential Treatment programs to permanent housing 
  • 100% of babies born while their mothers were receiving treatment from our Family Care Center were born drug free
