Odyssey Family Counseling Center was founded in 1973 by the local Atlanta community, and for 40 years has provided affordable counseling and mental health services to adults, adolescents, children, and families from all socio-economic and demographic groups.
Our mission: Odyssey empowers families and individuals, regardless of income, to improve their lives by offering quality trauma and prevention-focused mental health, relationship, and substance abuse counseling in the community.
One of the first agencies in Atlanta to offer a holistic approach to treatment and recovery, Odyssey emphasizes the integration of the family and the movement to a healthy lifestyle. It is one of the few agencies in the metro-Atlanta area offering mental health treatment and prevention services for children and adolescents.
Odyssey has always been rooted in the Atlanta community with the objective of providing ‘community wide mental health.’ We have maintained our vision to provide treatment to the underprivileged of metro-Atlanta: over 85 percent of our clients live at or below the federal poverty level and 75 percent are from minority populations. All treatment is centrally located at our main facility which was built in 2006 through a successful capital campaign and the generosity of the Atlanta community.
