Inner Harbour Campus


The Youth Villages Inner Harbour Campus is one of Georgia’s largest psychiatric residential treatment programs for children and youth with serious emotional disturbances. Serving young people throughout the Southeast since 1962, the Inner Harbour Campus merged with Youth Villages in the fall of 2009.

The 1,200 acre woodland setting just outside of Atlanta offers a therapeutic environment that includes a lake, a sports field with a running track and playgrounds for recreational activities. Hiking trails, canoeing activities, a ropes course and equine therapy enhance treatment as well.
