Bryan Independence Center Philosophy

Bryan Independence Center offers hospital-based treatment for individuals struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. The substance abuse rehab provides each client with a personalized plan for recovery based on 12-Step principles and effective, evidence-based practices. A comprehensive range of treatment activities are offered, including individual counseling, group therapy, family therapy, addiction education and relapse prevention, all designed to motivate clients and help them form a solid foundation for continued sobriety.

Areas of Specialization

  • Medical Detoxification
    Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.

  • Outpatient
    Outpatient treatment describes all addiction treatment that is not residential. Patients live at home while undergoing rehab.

ABOUT BRYAN INDEPENDENCE CENTER

The Bryan Independence Center –– a division of Bryan Medical Center –– is a drug and alcohol treatment center in southeast Nebraska. Located near a park, this center provides residential treatment and 24/7 access to nurses. According to its website, the center offers detoxification, an inpatient treatment for adults and adolescents, short-term residential treatment, and intensive outpatient treatment.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Bryan Independence Center’s treatment is founded on 12-step principles. The center focuses on group therapy, spiritual assistance, and works with co-occurring mental disorders. Most residential clients stay between two to three weeks while detoxification lasts about one week. They also try to prepare clients for life after treatment. Three outpatient programs, one that meets only once a week and two intensive programs that meet for three hours each week, are available.

Treatment for adolescent drug abuse for teens aged 13-18 is available. Parents and guardians of teens struggling with substance abuse can participate in a support group for free.

Educational programs and presentations are presented by the facility’s staff on anger, nutrition, sleep and physical problems resulting from substance abuse, among other topics.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

Bryan Independence Center employs a teacher, nurses, licensed counselors, mental health technicians, psychiatrists and a spiritual counselor.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

Bedrooms equipped with twin beds, dressers and desks are shared and are separated into different areas for men, women, and teens. Washers and dryers are available for clients to use, as are treadmills. Weekly trips to nearby Bryan LifePointe for aerobics or swimming lessons are available. Meals are provided for people in residential care, while partial care recipients receive lunch, according to the website.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

Alumni polled by Rehabs.com left mostly praise. One alumni gave middling ratings on affordability, the staff, and connectivity, and wrote “Very little communication. We had a few meetings per day otherwise we sat in our rooms and did nothing but dwell on our problems. Felt like the staff didn't really care.” Another alumni praised staff, food, and facilities, and wrote “Great people, that care about you and your recovery.”

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

One anonymous loved one wrote, “The treatment wasn't very effective, too expensive,” and gave a three star rating for counselling options and treatment effectiveness.

Another family member complained that no family day or visitation with the counselor was available but praised the center overall. “this is a great facility about 50 miles outside of omaha. ammenities and food are fantastic. counselors are great and my wife has been sober now for 6 months. life is a lot better in the household.”

FINANCING

So if this is not a Christian boot camp, why the hek do we have to pray at the end of every lame meeting? Sounds like religion to me. Argue all you want but at the end of the day you make us chant "god, grant me the-" what was that first thing you said? Yeah.

The one on one counselling for dual addictions and mental incapabilities was great. No family day with counselors and patient. They have visitation; but nothing where we sit down with the counselor. this is a great facility about 50 miles outside of omaha. Ammenities and food are fantastic. counselors are great and my wife has been sober now for 6 months. life is a lot better in the household.

Group time was good, liked most of the people (leaders or teachers) I talked to during group. Very little communication. We had a few meetings per day otherwise we sat in our rooms and did nothing but dwell on our problems. Felt like the staff didn't really care. I feel this facility has the option to be more successful but they seem to just want to up the drugs on their patients and let them sleep/hang out alone in their rooms all day. I didn't feel I had anyone that I could open up to plus my communication with family was very limited. It was not really helpful in my recovery.
