BDT (Behavioral Day Treatment) is an intensive outpatient substance abuse treatment program that targets adults with alcohol and/or drug abuse issues in Calhoun, Etowah, and other surrounding counties. Participants must report substance abuse issues, but not necessarily have any substance abuse charges. To participate, the initial assessment will take place when a client is referred. BDT is a 20 week program that meets 4 days a week, Monday-Thursday, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. The program is free to all who participate. BDT does not enroll anyone that has been convicted of an unlawful act of sexual misconduct.

The substance abuse staff receives referrals from judges, court referral offices, probation officers, lawyers, DHR workers, and other substance abuse treatment programs. We are proud of the relationships we have built with our referral sources.

We are pleased to offer these free programs to both HIV positive and negative individuals in our community.
