ABOUT WEEMS COMMUNITY MENTAL HEALTH CENTER

Founded in 1970, the center offers residential and outpatient care for individuals struggling with substance use disorder and dual diagnosis of mental illness as well as outpatient care for mental health disorders.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

According to the facility’s website, residential care is offered in a 30-day program for adults ages 18 and over at the Weems LifeCare Recovery Center. For clients who need a longer stay, there is an extended care secondary residential option lasting up to 60 days; clients may work during the day while in extended care.

Outpatient care consists of an intensive outpatient program (IOP) that meets three evenings a week for 10 weeks. The IOP offers individual and group care. There’s also a dedicated 10-week IOP for adolescents. Following treatment, all clients have access to two years’ worth of aftercare services.

Some of the faculty do really make an effort to help some of the patients. Outside drugs are still easily available to.patients with very little effort. There just isn't much to chose from here and people don't expect much.
