Individuals from anywhere in Georgia can call one toll-free number for access to care in a crisis.
The Georgia Crisis and Access Line is staffed by trained professionals who provide the most appropriate linkage to care for mental health crises, developmental disabilities, and substance abuse crises.
The Georgia Collaborative Administrative Services Organization (ASO) works with the Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities’ (DBHDD) network of more than 600 providers.
The Georgia Collaborative ASO facilitates the delivery of whole-health, person-centered and culturally sensitive supports and services to individuals and their families throughout the state. GCAL is one of the three partners in the Collaborative.
