Coliseum Health System operates two hospitals in Macon, Georgia. Among the network's provisions is a center for behavioral health that provides a range of services for psychiatric disorders, plus treatment for substance use disorder. Substance use programming consists of inpatient detox and outpatient treatment at a variety of intensities, plus aftercare services.


Coliseum's addiction treatment services are based on the 12-Steps as well as education about recovery and addiction.

Detox is medically monitored for the client's comfort and safety. While they're staying at the hospital, detoxing clients participate in classes, groups, and activities to introduce them to recovery and help them to understand addiction and relapse-prevention techniques.

Outpatient care is offered in two treatment tracks: a partial hospitalization program (PHP) and an intensive outpatient program (IOP). The PHP runs Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. until 2 p.m. and includes a weekly family day. The IOP is on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday mornings only, from 7 a.m. until 11.45 a.m. Clients are required to attend both on-site and off-site 12-step meetings. During their treatment, all clients work on discharge plans to ensure a smooth transition to life after treatment. A cornerstone of these plans is a weekly aftercare meeting, held on-site and offered free of charge.


The treatment team include psychiatrists, social workers, a counselor, and a nurse. The two individuals polled by to date gave the staff's level of training and experience a four-star rating and a five-star rating.


There is currently no information provided by Coliseum Medical Centers' substance abuse department regarding its living arrangements and related offerings, however, both of the alumni polled by to date on the center's cleanliness gave it four stars. The single alum who rated the center's accommodations, meals, and exercise and leisure offerings gave them three, five, and three stars respectively.


The single alum polled by to date would recommend Coliseum Medical Centers' substance abuse services, praising in particular the center's "food and ease of admission," but adding that they would have liked more "options for loved ones to participate." They gave the facility one star for its holistic offerings, three stars for its counseling options, and four stars for its treatment effectiveness and ability to treat co-occurring disorders.

At the time of this writing, secondary review sites yielded no coverage of the hospital's substance use treatment in particular, and mixed reports on the hospital as a whole, which had average ratings of four stars based on 498 reviews on Facebook (where the facility can manage its own page), 2.9 stars based on 61 reviews on Google, and three stars based on 10 reviews on Yelp.[1] [2] [3] The positive reviews repeatedly featured high praise for the center's staff: "My family and I have received nothing but 5 star service from the doctors, nurses, and other staff in all my experiences," C.H. wrote in a representative review on Google. Among the negative reviews, recurring complaints cited dirty conditions, unhelpful staff, and long wait times. "Terrible staff that was not sensitive to the needs of the patient," A.B. wrote in a typical negative review on Google.


The single loved one polled by to date gave positive feedback. "Treatment was effective," they wrote, indicating that they would recommend the facility and giving the program four stars for its holistic offerings, family participation, and ability to treat co-occurring disorders, and three stars for its counseling options.


The IOP at Coliseum is covered by most insurance plans, but the facility's website does not provide prices or insurance details for the other treatment programs. The two individuals polled by to date gave the facility a two-star rating and a four-star rating for its affordability.
