ABOUT THREE DIMENSIONAL LIFE FOR YOUNG MEN

Located on a secluded plot of land in idyllic Gainesville, Ga., Three Dimensional Life provides long-term residential treatment for teenage boys struggling with substance abuse. It is one of 51 facilities in Georgia to offer long-term residential care. The organization takes a faith-based approach to treatment that focuses on the residents' "relationship with Christ” to aid them in their road to recovery. It is part of the 26 percent of treatment facilities in the state that operate as non-profit organizations.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Three Dimensional Life admits boys between the ages of 14 and 19. It is one of 68 facilities in Georgia that offers treatment specifically for adolescents. Treatment takes place over nine months and is divided into four stages.

Over this period of time, clients participate in a highly disciplined program that prioritizes school and incorporates group therapy and weekly individual counseling. Following treatment, clients may enroll in the LifeTrack program, a nine-month aftercare program where clients complete their educational goals or secure an apprenticeship or internship.

Clients can continue their high school education by enrolling in Faith Academy, a non-traditional education option that utilizes tutoring and small group instruction. Faith Academy is a fully accredited high school with accreditation from AdvancEd. Clients may also spend time studying for their GED test or pursuing online college education.

Three Dimensional Life maintains a strict communication policy. While the program does incorporate family counseling and visitation sessions, contact during the first 30 days of enrollment is strictly prohibited. Once this initial phase has passed, family members are allowed to visit and attend church with their loved ones twice per month. Family counseling is also conducted two times per month. Clients may visit their families after completing six months of treatment.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

According to the facility’s website, the rehab appears to be run in large part thanks to trained volunteers, instructors, and counselors. Loved ones may receive professional counseling from a licensed counselor. It is governed by an independent board of directors.
