ABOUT EDGEFIELD RECOVERY CENTER

From a 27-acre estate in rural central Louisiana, Edgefield Recovery Center offers subacute medical detox, residential treatment, and a variety of outpatient programs for men and women aged 18+ who are struggling with addiction to drugs and alcohol, as well as co-occurring disorders such as depression and anxiety.

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 aftercare planning, 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.

Intake coordinator had no idea how to explain what my responsibility of payment was going to be,” an anonymous reviewer wrote. In addition, two reviewers criticized the staff: “The staff’s professionalism leaves much to be desired,” L.L. wrote in a representative review.

Reviews about Edgefield Recovery Center

This place is not what they make it appear online. The rooms they show online are not the rooms they put u in once u check in. There are at least 3 people per room and u are in a dorm like set up. The only thing u do in the plantation home is eat. They have a nice formal bathroom but the patients are forbidden to bathe in it, it's strictly for looks for when your family comes to visit. The administrator and counselors are nice enough but they do not get your body well enough through detox to begin working on your mind. It's very boring, limited recreational activities. I think they could do alot more for the patients through a proper detox for all MACs and by providing fun constructive activities for the patients.

  • Above description of facility and services are BS——she in returne cursed the tech—figured she was going to get kicked out and asked to call to be picked up—they told her no you are doing good and need the help—next morning – they kicked her out—there were witnesses that back her story but were ignored- they protected the tech—it seems to be a scam—if they would let her go when she wanted they would not have been paid for the balance—the next day they got paid entire amount —they lied to her to get more money—they say they treat anger-not so—tech has major anger issues and would have kept daughter to teach her how to cope with the inadequate tech—-the tech may be part of the scam—they respond and then you kick them out to make room for another sucker—money making scam/-getting with the state and Medicare to investigate this place—only saw 3-4 people that had a proper education—no psychologist or psychologist—I have a masters in clinical psychology and I was surprised at some of staff behavior I observed

  • I tried to become a satisfied client at this facility. Very unsatisfied with the way they make sure that you have no choice AT ALL once you are dropped off there. They make sure that you are by all means stuck there even if you signed yourself into their facility.

  • This facility was pretty okay.
    I would recommend Edgefield to anyone with an addiction problem. The staff is very professional. The consolers are excellent and very knowledgeable. The techs are caring and helpful in meeting your needs. The food is very good and special requests are honored for food and fruit. We had plenty of what we wanted and needed. This was my first treatment center. I had 10 years of sobriety before I relapsed for another ten years. I learned more at Edgefield in 31 days than I learned in ten years of sobriety regularly attending AA meetings and working with a sponsor. The grounds are beautiful and the accommodations are also very nice and clean. The residents are responsible for cleaning so if they have a complaint about cleanliness it was their own problem. I am now clean and happy. I look forward to going back in the futur

  • The treatment offered is not superb. The location and grounds are nice. However, the staff's professionalism leaves much to be desired. They failed to explain that there would be a balance for room & board and had snooty attitudes. At no time except final discharge was the fact that insurance did not cover room and board mentioned. During admission, papers were slung at us with a Sign Here/Initial Here method.

  • This place sells the image of compassion, care, and cleanliness....all is a BIG LIE! Intake coordinator had no idea how to explain what my responsibility of payment was going to be. She did have the history of the home down though. Meals were prepared well but most of the time didn't have basic necessities (water, milk, fruit). The program was great when the counselors, techs and nurses weren't arguing and contradicting each other. Administration was great, minus one rude secretary or whatever she is. Oh and rooms were nice for the most part, if you like rat feces in you dresser drawers. Would not recommend for my dog to stay the night. NURSING WAS THE ONLY DEPARTMENT THAT HOLDS THIS PLACE TOGETHER!
