The residential treatment environment at Palmetto Addiction Recovery Center is based on the Therapeutic Community model. Clients learn to work together to solve problems as a drug-free community. The size and design of our community and campus provides a special opportunity to create a working model of healthy peer confrontation. Under the guidance of counselors, denial is broken down, self-disclosure begins, changes in behavior and thinking occur, and long-term sobriety skills are taught.
Palmetto Addiction Recovery Residential Treatment Center has served people from all over the country including Texas, Mississippi, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Missouri. As a residential treatment facility, Palmetto has the ability to take people from the stress and demands of their everyday surroundings and provide an environment that offers seclusion and focus.
The treatment week during a residential stay is carefully planned to provide the best use of each day, and to address the many topics and issues that are essential to addiction recovery. Educational topics include areas of recovery such as abuse survivors, sexual compulsivity, family of origin issues, neurochemistry of addiction, boundaries, spirituality and relapse triggers/prevention. Addiction is viewed in the context of an individual's social and psychological deficits, and our residential treatment model focuses on developing personal accountability and responsibility and socially productive lives.
Staff and patients Palmetto work together during their residential stay to assist each community member in moving through the four phases of addiction treatment. There are no predetermined lengths of stay at our recovery center. Each patient is given an explanation of the assignments to be achieved in each phase in order to successfully complete the corresponding phase. Phase advancement is then based on assignment completion and notable behavior, along with emotional and spiritual changes. Staff and patients meet weekly as a general community to consider each person's request for phase advancement.
The medical staff reviews each individual case in order to assess a suitable detox protocol. Care is given to each patient to help ensure a safe, therapeutic transition from active substance abuse.
