Choosing the right treatment center for your recovery can make a significant difference in your long-term outcomes. The type of community, the treatment methods and the particular expertise of the center you choose should make sense for your lifestyle, your goals and your experiences. If you do not receive treatment for addiction in a setting that makes you feel comfortable, cared for and supported, you may not be fully engaged in your recovery, and you are likely to find yourself facing relapse in the future. Lasting sobriety is best achieved when your recovery experience is suited to who you are and where you have been.

At Palmetto Addiction Recovery Center, we focus on creating a cohesive community of men and women who are dedicated to finding lifelong sobriety. We treat a range of common substance addictions and co-occurring disorders using a blend of traditional and modern modalities that meets the personal needs of people from all walks of life. Our team is highly qualified, experienced, and, most importantly, passionate — and we strive to share our passion with our clients as they rediscover their purpose, their health and their love of life.

Alcohol Rehab Center Addiction

Alcoholism is a broadly reaching problem that has long been the most common substance use disorder in the U.S. and worldwide. Despite many studies over the years that show alcohol is harmful to our health and has a high potential for addiction, it remains a deeply ingrained part of our society. Men and women of all ages are susceptible to developing an alcohol use disorder, especially if they are surrounded by others who drink heavily or regularly. The accessibility and prevalence of alcohol make drinking a difficult habit to break — but with the right approach to treatment and the right tools for addiction management, it is possible to live a long-term, fulfilling and alcohol-free lifestyle.

Drug Rehab Center Addiction

Drugs like heroin, meth, cocaine and marijuana are widely recognized for their addictive potential and harmful effects, yet millions of Americans fall into the trap of illicit drug use every year. These drugs can produce strong, pleasurable effects that can seem like an easy solution for people who want to feel happier, have more energy or avoid problems in their life. But using illicit drugs can cause lasting damage to physical and mental well-being, and in many cases, these drugs result in fatalities due to overdose or related health complications. Specialized treatment for illicit drugs involves monitored detoxification, attentive medical and clinical staff and therapies that reinforce healthier habits and coping mechanisms.

Prescription Drug Rehab Center Addiction

It may seem like the drugs that are given to you by a doctor should be perfectly safe, but there are prescription medications that can be misused or can become addictive over time. Prescription drugs with a high rate of addiction include anti-anxiety medications like Xanax and Valium, also called benzodiazepines; stimulant medications for attention disorders like Concerta, Ritalin and Adderall; and, in particular, pain medications like OxyContin and Vicodin, also called opioids. These drugs come with their own set of challenges in treatment. If you are struggling with a prescription drug use disorder, it is essential to get treatment at a facility that has experience addressing potential pitfalls like drug-seeking behavior patterns, painful withdrawal symptoms and accompanying conditions for which the medication may have been prescribed.

Dual Diagnosis Treatment Center Addiction

Approximately 45% of adult men and women who struggle with a substance use disorder also have a co-occurring mental health disorder like anxiety, depression, PTSD, OCD or a personality disorder. These two concerns tend to compound one another — either when the symptoms of an existing mental health concern lead to self-medication with drugs or alcohol, or when long-term drug and alcohol use causes changes in brain chemistry that lead to symptoms of a mental health disorder. But no matter what the interplay between co-occurring disorders might be, studies consistently show that treatment must address both diagnoses to be fully effective. When only one diagnosis is treated, lingering symptoms of the other often trigger a relapse and lead to a cycle of unsuccessful recovery. With specific, targeted dual diagnosis treatment, patients can instead learn to manage all of their concerns effectively.

Our Recovery Methods

Addiction recovery has historically been grouped into two methods: the traditional 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous, and newer approaches that incorporate modern psychotherapy. There are benefits and drawbacks to both schools of thought, and many people searching for the right recovery experience wonder which is right for them.

At Palmetto Addiction Recovery Center, there is a third option: an individualized blend of the time-tested structure of 12-Step recovery and the science- and research-proven modalities of cutting-edge therapies. At Palmetto, we understand the value of both approaches, and above all, we know that there is never a right or wrong way to find long-lasting recovery. Every patient we treat is different, so we embrace these differences and use them to inform the care we provide. Our multidisciplinary methods of recovery treatment are designed to incorporate aspects of different approaches in a way that makes sense for each patient.

12-Step Programming

The 12 Step addiction recovery method was originally a religious program that focused on prayer as an important avenue for healing. Today, it is a time-tested structure of recovery that has helped millions of people find a way out of addiction and offers ongoing support and purpose. The 12 Steps help people set and achieve their goals, and encourages them to take an honest look at themselves in order to find sobriety. And, while the 12 Steps continue to include God in the person’s restoration, this can come in the form of any person’s “higher power” or even focus on the power an individual has to save themselves.

Evidence-Based Therapies

Our staff includes physicians, counselors, social workers and therapists who are trained and licensed to provide a range of modern treatment modalities. Our therapy sessions include methodologies such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), motivational interviewing and existential therapy. Patients work one-on-one and in groups with our specialized clinical staff to address concerns related to addiction and mental health, including relationships, trauma, self-confidence, accountability and self-control.

Addiction Education

Education is paramount for any person’s recovery. This includes understanding the substance, drug or behavior that is at the root of the addiction as well as learning about the disease of addiction itself. Educational sessions are integral to our recovery methods at Palmetto — we want every one of our patients to feel empowered through knowledge to feel in control of their addiction. We also offer workshops and activities that help our patients learn and develop essential life skills like healthy meal planning, time management, interpersonal skills and appropriate boundaries.
