TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Treatment is based on the 12-Steps, and Edgefield also uses the therapeutic community model, which gets residents involved in their own and other clients’ recoveries. Methods related to cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and rational emotional behavioral therapy (REBT) are also utilized. The length of treatment varies depending on each client’s needs.
During detox, nursing staff is present 24/7.
During residential treatment and partial hospitalization (PHP), clients receive a minimum of 15 hours of therapy each week, and attend group five days per week. Clients must also participate in individual treatment and community programs, namely 12-step meetings, and they must provide documentation proving that they have attended these meetings. Also provided are chemical dependency education, access to a psychiatrist if needed, a family program, nutritional education, relapse prevention and, and exercise and group recreational activities, such as a weekly exercise group facilitated by a personal trainer.
An intensive outpatient program (IOP) offers group therapy three nights a week, using the same modalities as residential treatment, minus the recreational, nutritional, and exercise components. Clients must also continue to attend (and provide documentation of attendance at) Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) meetings.
A family program, available to the loved ones of all clients, provides education and training in coping skills, to help improve families’ own lives as well as that of their loved one.
