Jolimar Recovery Center

Jolimar Recovery Center


From a rural location in southern Mississippi, Jolimar Recovery Center offers outpatient treatment at a variety of intensities for adults struggling with substance abuse and mental health disorders.


For individuals struggling with substance abuse, the center offers assessment and education services as well as an intensive outpatient program (IOP) that’s offered on weekday afternoons or evenings, to suit a variety of schedules. The length of the IOP is tailored to suit the individual client’s needs.

Treatment is quite traditional, taking in individual and group counseling, an introduction to the 12-Steps, a family program, education about addiction and recovery, relapse prevention groups, and education about HIV, AIDS, and other infectious diseases. The family program includes family group counseling as well as individual family sessions and an introduction to 12-step groups such as Al-Anon. Jolimar also places a particular emphasis on continuing care, offering weekly aftercare sessions on-site, as well as referrals to aftercare in Louisiana, Texas, and the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

In addition to substance abuse treatment, the facility offers a drug and alcohol awareness program that consists of six two-hour classes.


Staff includes a PhD-level counselor employed on a consulting basis, as well as a master’s level therapist and two certified alcohol and drug counselors, both of whom are in recovery and are active members of 12-step groups. The single alum polled by to date gave the facility five out of five stars for its staff’s level of training and experience.


The single alum polled by to date would strongly recommend treatment at Jolimar Recovery Center. “Great counselors, many meetings… Taught responsibility , love of self, how to svoid relapse,” L.P. wrote, though they added that they felt treatment was too short. L.P. gave the facility five stars for its family participation and its treatment for co-occurring disorders, four stars for its treatment effectiveness and holistic offerings, and three stars for its counseling options.

“Without the tools I was given by the staff here I would not be alive today. Thank you all for what you do,” S.U. wrote in a five-star review on Google, the only secondary review was able to uncover at the time of this writing.[1]


Prices for substance abuse counseling are available only upon request, but the cost of marriage and family counseling is $100/hour. Drug screenings cost $25, an alcohol screen costs $40, and the two combined cost $55. The facility’s website does not state whether insurance is accepted, however, the single alum polled by to date gave the facility three out of five stars for its affordability.
