ABOUT US

The professionals at Palmetto Addiction Recovery Center have provided high quality Chemical Dependency Treatment for more than 20 years in Louisiana and nationwide. Palmetto offers care for male and female adults(18 and older) faced with the challenges of alcoholism and drug dependencies.

Our treatment team has over 250 years of experience with recovery and treatment of addictions along with treatment for patients afflicted with coexisting psychiatric disorders. The staff at Palmetto includes addictionists, psychiatrists, psychologists, certified substance abuse counselors, masters level social workers, and a comprehensive nursing staff.

At Palmetto, we believe that addiction is a primary drive that must be managed through education, cognitive restructuring, emotive therapies, and the experience of learning to live addiction free. Each of these processes helps our clients to unearth the issues that drive their addiction and learn how to halt the addictive response. In doing so, clients begin to recover from the shame and guilt that surrounds their illness, and learn how to relate to self and others in healthier ways.

The goal of treatment for every client who enters Palmetto is that they are given every opportunity to develop the coping skills necessary to build a long term, self-sustaining recovery based on abstinence from alcohol, drugs, and other mood and mind altering addictions.

Treatment centers often use a rigid approach to treatment that requires the patient to "plug in" to a fixed treatment program without careful evaluation. This approach to treatment often results in instances of misdiagnosis and mistreatment of the patient. A primary goal at Palmetto is to ensure that this does not occur.

We believe that the key to successful treatment is accurate evaluation, which assesses all aspects of the patient's symptoms and living situation. We provide a careful medical examination to identify any medical problems resulting from substance abuse, and to properly manage any concurrent medical conditions. This is followed by a thorough psychosocial and substance abuse evaluation to identify the problems that must be addressed in the treatment of the patient and the family. Finally, if indicated, psychological testing and psychiatric evaluations are used to ensure that all psychiatric conditions are discovered and properly treated. This information is used to formulate an individual treatment plan.

Every morning, our multi-disciplinary team meets to review each patient's progress so that our approach and treatment is continuously updated. Goal oriented and patient specific methods provide the basis for patient care and prevention of relapse.

Palmetto's program includes the use of group, individual and family psychotherapy. Social skills, physical fitness and nutrition are stressed. Daily attendance at 12-step meetings is mandatory. Special issues such as gambling, sexual addiction and relapse prevention are addressed. Treatment with medication, if necessary, is determined by the physician.
