The leadership at Manna have maintained the safety standards of the CDC while we have been enduring this pandemic. Currently, Manna Staff and clients are required to check in and take their temperature each time that they enter the building; they are not allowed to enter if their temperature is above 99.5 degrees. In addition, Manna is doing the following to ensure the safety of everyone:
- Requiring all to wear their mask while they are traveling in common areas throughout the building (hallways, lobby, bathrooms, etc.)
- Engaging in a cleaning schedule every three hours to disinfect commonly used areas
- Asking every person who uses the bathrooms to complete a checklist prior to leaving the bathroom to ensure the safety of others
- Providing touchless sanitizers in the lobby and near the bathrooms
Manna is providing online and in-person treatment options for each person’s personal comfort. We will continue to engage in these practices (as suggested by the CDC) for as long as is recommended by the CDC. The CDC’s recommended procedures for remaining virus-free is HERE
What is Manna?
Manna Treatment is a program under the Manna Scholarship Fund nonprofit. Manna Treatment is a psychotherapy practice located in the northeast corner of the greater Atlanta area that not only focuses on depression, anxiety, grief, and addiction, but provides higher-level treatment programs that specialize in both eating disorders and trauma.
Eating disorder treatments include anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder for all ages and genders. We have created well-planned and effective treatment programs for those who need Partial Hospitalization (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP).
Manna is working towards providing an IOP for trauma-based disorders. This will be a 12-week program that focuses on providing coping skills, but will also address common issues that emerge as a result of PTSD, dissociation, and other issues related to trauma. This program will initially be rolled out and serving adults.
Manna utilizes principles based on the Bible in the therapeutic process. We strive to be a safe environment where individuals struggling can process their feelings, learn new ways of coping and facilitate change. Our therapeutic approach is to show others how we believe that Jesus treated people, not through force or lectures.
In the Bible, “Manna” literally means “What is it?” It was in reference to the food supplied by God to the Israelite’s when they were in the desert for forty years.
He rained down manna for the people to eat, he gave them the grain of heaven. Psalm 78.24
God knew what the people needed, how much they needed and provided. At Manna Treatment, that is what we believe about how food is to be used. It is from God, for us and is made to meet our needs. In the New Testament, Jesus becomes the “Manna” – “For the bread of God is he who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” John 6:33 Therefore, Manna Treatment was designed to replace the “addictive process” of eating disorders with the true Manna, which is Christ himself. We encourage individuals to seek Him in each and every aspect of life, especially in how they use eating (and other addictive, ineffective coping skills) to resolve what only He can.
To provide treatment for those with eating disorders at the Partial Hospitalization, Intensive Outpatient, and Outpatient levels of care, utilizing multiple sources of revenue, for as long as the client needs such treatment. Manna Treatment desires to support the client from surviving to thriving to leading.
