Located in Sandy Springs, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta, the Center occupies 20 heavily wooded acres overlooking the Chattahoochee River. The expansive grounds feature indigenous trees, plants, wildlife, and even a waterfall. A three-tiered deck, gazebos, and benches provide quiet resting places for meditation and introspection. Walking trails through the woods and the river’s edge, beckon you to outward and inward discovery.

Atlanta Center for Wellness (AC4W) was formed out of a need for a collaborative, holistic, integrative-wellness approach to mental health on an outpatient basis in Atlanta. In addition to offering mental health counseling, AC4W provides training courses, including mindfulness-based interventions. The Mindfulness Center of Atlanta has partnered with AC4W to offer MBSR courses on site. AC4W is located just outside Atlanta’s Central Perimeter market. The upscale five-story office building offers quick and easy access to East Cobb, Buckhead, Sandy Springs, and Perimeter and the many amenities found in the Central Perimeter core, with faster ingress and egress to I-285, Georgia 400, Roswell Road, and metro Atlanta.
