Our Core Programs
Clubhouse Atlanta operates as a community where the day-to-day programming models the traditional work day. Members are involved in helping with maintaining the clubhouse facility, shopping for groceries, inventory planning, recipe planning and preparing lunches.
The Clubhouse Model is widely used in the United States as well as internationally. As participants in a clubhouse, you are not a client or patient, you are a member. The focus is on your strengths and goals, not on your mental health condition. Work in the Clubhouse consists of an array of choices that are completely voluntary.
The Work-Ordered-Day essentially creates a sense of structure that gives purpose and gets members working towards common goals that can be used to strengthen skills that will aid in their recovery.
