ABOUT ASSISTED RECOVERY CENTER- SAVANNAH, GA

Assisted Recovery Center of Georgia, Inc., located in Savannah, Ga., offers short-term inpatient as well as outpatient, medically-assisted treatment for struggling with alcohol or opioid drug use disorder. Assisted Recovery Center was started in 1999 as an alternative to traditional treatment methods such as 12-step programs. The facility’s website boasts a success rate of five to six times higher than traditional programs.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

To be admitted, clients should contact the facility directly using their 24/7 help-line to determine the best course of treatment and schedule an intake appointment. The length of stay at the inpatient detox facility varies for each individual but is typically short-term and may only last seven days for some clients. Length of treatment in the outpatient programs is typically three months although there is a two week accelerated day program available.

The facility’s treatment program recognizes addiction as a physiological brain-based disorder and takes a medical-approach to treatment, utilizing medications to help decrease cravings for clients as they detox and progress through treatment.

During inpatient medical detox, clients are cared for by specially trained nurses with physician supervision and they stay in private suites during their treatment. Clients must be medically cleared before starting treatment including no history of seizures, not currently pregnant, not have acute hepatitis, uncontrolled hypertension, or any other uncontrolled mental or physical illness. Throughout inpatient treatment, clients receive a physical assessment, an individualized treatment plan, medication therapy, and nursing services at least three times per day.

The outpatient therapy program at Assisted Recovery Center includes group therapy sessions at least twice per week. The group sessions implement cognitive-behavioral therapy and use cognitive restructuring methods. Client will also have an opportunity to complete individual therapy with a licensed therapist for a total of ten hours as well as optional family therapy if it would be beneficial. Clients in outpatient therapy will be assessed by a physician or nurse practitioner and receive medication treatment as needed.

The IOP at Assisted Recovery Center is a more intensive outpatient option providing group therapy sessions at least twice per week or more, lasting 1.5 hours each and are led by a licensed therapist. Clients may also complete individual or family counseling sessions for up to 20 hours total and receive medication as needed.

The Day Treatment Accelerated Program condenses the same material from the three month long outpatient program into two weeks. Clients meets daily for a minimum of three hours per day in the evening and is led by a licensed therapist and support from registered nurses. Clients in this program meet for individual counseling sessions for 5 hours total per week and may also receive medication as needed.

Specialized treatment programs are available for professionals or executives who want more flexibility and confidentiality during treatment, an alcohol harm reduction program, and an opioid specific treatment program. The opioid treatment program lasts from three to 13 weeks depending on the individual’s needs and clients receive methadone, Suboxone, Naltrexone, or Subutex during the program to help relieve cravings and decrease relapse risk.
