ABOUT THREE RIVERS BEHAVIORAL HEALTH
Three Rivers Behavioral Health is a behavioral health and psychiatric hospital in West Columbia, S.C. Located next to the Lexington Medical Center, the facility accepts both involuntary and voluntary admissions. Substance abuse treatment consists of medical detox, residential rehab, and intensive outpatient care for adults and seniors struggling with addiction and dual diagnosis. For adolescents, there’s a residential dual diagnosis program.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
A free initial assessment is conducted by a psychiatric nurse or licensed social worker. During detox and the intensive phase of an inpatient stay, clients receive medical and psychiatric stabilization along with 24-hour nursing care.
Three Rivers follows the disease concept of addiction. Though the facility provides few details of its treatment modalities, the course description for adolescent dual diagnosis treatment lists Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) participation, indicating that this is a 12-step-based facility. Programming emphasizes relapse prevention and self-realization.
The adolescent inpatient treatment program, designed for clients aged 11 to 17, offers a high degree of structure based on 12-step principles. Treatment includes group, individual, and family therapy as well as activity therapy.
There is also an adult chemical dependency intensive outpatient program (IOP) that meets three times a week during the day or the evening. This program offers 12-step programming, group therapy, motivational enhancement techniques, relapse prevention skills, family group counseling, and continuing care planning.
According to the facility’s website, treatment is administered by a multi-disciplinary team of psychiatrists, social workers, activity therapists, nurses and technicians. To date, 13 individuals polled by Rehabs.com gave the staff’s level of training and experience an average of 4.31 out of five stars.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Pictures published on the facility’s website show a clean, modern, clinical facility with sparsely decorated shared bedrooms and an outdoor seating area. The 13 individuals polled by Rehabs.com to date rated the center’s cleanliness an average 4.1 out of five stars — though in other commentary, several individuals cited dirty conditions.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
Of twenty-one alumni polled by Rehabs.com to date, ten left positive reviews, four mixed reviews, and seven negative reviews. Seven alumni polled on the facility’s offerings in a variety of areas gave it average ratings of 4.29 stars, 4.71 stars, and four stars respectively for its family program, exercise and leisure provisions, and counseling options.
Repeated praise was awarded to the center’s staff, aftercare programming, and group counseling. “This place saved my life!...The staff, every single one of them, truly cared about me and what they were doing,” one alum, Joe wrote.
Two reviewers, however, complained about dirty conditions. Alum Teresa wrote: “This place is nasty, not clean at all.” Two other alum wrote that they found the center physically cold. Others described a lack of care from staff: “They don't care about you here and most of the time the staff will call you names and worse,” John wrote. An anonymous reviewer added: “The staff could benefit from more empathy exercises.”
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
Of seven loved ones polled by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing, three would recommend treatment at this facility, two would strongly not recommend it, and the remaining two declined to comment. The six reviewers who evaluated several of the facility’s metrics gave it average ratings of 2.83 stars for its family program, 2.67 stars for its counseling options, and 2.17 stars for its holistic offerings.
The reviews yielded no recurring praise, but repeated criticism cited dirty conditions and rude staff. “Not productive, verbally abusive, dirty, poor staff and poor accommodations,” one anonymous reviewer wrote. Another loved one claimed that their sister was overmedicated at this facility.
According to its website, Three Rivers is an approved provider for most major insurers and managed care plans. Self-payment is also accepted. To date, 14 individuals polled by Rehabs.com rated the facility’s affordability an average 3.8 out of five stars.
