Buckhead Behavioral Health opens in Atlanta

Center provides addiction and mental health treatment for adults and adolescents

ATLANTA, GA (October 18, 2021) – Buckhead Behavioral Health, an outpatient center providing
treatment for addiction and mental health, has officially opened its doors today. The facility, which
accepts most major private medical insurance, offers a partial hospitalization program (PHP), intensive
outpatient program (IOP) and outpatient services for both adults and adolescents. Conveniently located
treatment options—all within walking distance of the Buckhead Behavioral Health office—are also
available for adults.


“Our mission at Buckhead Behavioral Health is to offer a thriving start to recovery journeys with
individualized programs and structured treatment plans,” said Carter Pope Jr., CEO and founder. “The
coronavirus pandemic has led to increased isolation and stress, exacerbating mental health and
addiction issues in people who are struggling. This service is needed now more than ever, and we’re
proud to step up to the plate to serve Atlanta and surrounding areas.”


The team of professionals at Buckhead Behavioral Health will treat drug addiction, alcoholism, dual
diagnosis and mental health conditions including, but not limited to, depression, anxiety and post
traumatic stress disorder. The adolescent program will treat teens ages 13 through 18.


“With our group and one-on-one therapy, we’ll help both teens and adults battling these issues get back
on track to have a healthier and happier life,” said Doug Paul, Clinical Director. “Along with Dr. Rahul
Gupta, our Medical Director, I couldn’t be more excited about our talented team of therapists and the
meaningful difference we’ll make for our patients and their loved ones.”


Buckhead Behavioral Health is located at 2285 Peachtree Rd NE, Suite 210, in a safe, central and
convenient area near Peachtree Hills. The clean, modern office—which has an underground parking
deck—fosters a private and peaceful atmosphere to help patients recover. A mural by Claire Paul, local
artist and Doug Paul’s wife, provides a calming backdrop for the common room. The facility features a
waiting area, intake room, medical room, kitchen/break area for staff and patients, three therapist offices
and two spacious group rooms for shared healing.


“We’re launching Buckhead Behavioral Health to raise the standard and offer a high-quality treatment
option inside the perimeter,” said Alec Pagliarulo, President.”We want to redefine addiction treatment in
Atlanta, and we look forward to working with our trusted network of industry partners in Georgia as we
tackle this issue together. Addiction doesn’t discriminate, and it’s important to start hard conversations to
raise awareness and reduce the stigma around these issues.”


Carter Pope Jr., a lifelong resident of Atlanta, began his own journey of recovery several years ago, and
since has made it his mission to expand treatment options for people suffering from substance use
disorder in the Buckhead area. In 2019, he opened Creekside Recovery Residences to offer premier,
community-living sober residences. The three main tenets of Creekside are luxury accomodations,
technology-driven recovery tools, and community and family integration.
