Community-based services sometimes flawed

This map shows locations of state-authorized providers of community-based services for the 482 people with developmental disabilities who have been transferred from Georgia’s state psychiatric hospitals since 2010. Blue dots indicate group homes or other facilities where deaths occurred. Red dots show facilities that were cited for rules violations but reported no deaths. Yellow dots show all other providers. Information on citations for rules violations comes from two state agencies: the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities and the Department of Community Health. In some instances, locations shown are corporate headquarters, and some providers have multiple locations not depicted. Violations may have occurred at affiliated locations.
