Trauma Recovery Care

After Care Services

We see a lot of injuries in our Marcus Trauma and Emergency Center. From a lot of research, we know that someone is at a high risk of being injured again after a traumatic event. We also know that all the factors that may have put you at risk of being injured today will still be there when you leave the hospital. And most things that put you at risk aren’t entirely in your control or easy to change.

Grady’s Trauma Recovery Center can provide you with 16 weeks of free psychotherapy and supportive case management services. We offer services for patients 5 years or older who are DeKalb/Fulton county residents and have experienced any of the following within the last three years:

  • Burns
  • Domestic Violence
  • Firearm Violence
  • Human Sex Trafficking
  • Motor Vehicle Collision
  • Physical assault
  • Sexual Assault
  • Stabbing

We want to help. Grady’s Trauma Recovery Center can connect you with the services you need like:

  • Access to primary medical care
  • Assistance with finding emergency/safe housing
  • Case management and assertive outreach
  • Individual and group psychotherapy
  • Legal and financial assistance referrals and advocacy
  • Medication management and support
  • Self-care education and emphasis

If there are changes you think could help you be safer, let us be your resource. Receive services through telehealth, in-home/community visits, and in-person at Grady. Insurance is not required to participate.
