Areas of Specialization
Intensive Outpatient (IOP)
Patients who undergo intensive outpatient treatment continue to live at home and sometimes go to school or work while participating in a highly structured treatment protocol that is focused on ending substance abuse. Programs vary in terms of how much treatment patients receive, how often and for how long. Some facilities design individualized intensive outpatient treatment programs.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
The focus of cognitive behavioral therapy (also called CBT) is helping people to understand the thoughts and emotions that underlie their addiction with the goal of learning new, healthier and more productive ways to understand and express themselves.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Delta Medical Center does not provide information about the residential facility. As Delta is a hospital, potential clients can expect an environment that’s clinical in nature. Seven alumni, loved ones, and staff members surveyed by Rehabs.com gave Delta’s accommodations medium to low ratings, with an average rating of 1.4 out of five stars. One anonymous family member told Rehabs.com that Delta had a “very depressing atmosphere.”
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
The three alumni surveys conducted by Rehabs.com to date about Delta Medical Center were largely negative. Two respondents rated the treatment effectiveness with one and three out of five stars respectively, its holistic treatment offerings just one star each, and counseling options two stars each.
Complaints focused mainly on the accommodations and ineffectiveness of treatment. Alum T.H. felt that the Suboxone treatment was one of the facility’s strengths, but wrote: “(They) leave you ill prepared for the real world after treatment Over rx meds that you don't need and under rx the ones you do meed.” Alum W.R. was also disappointed with their treatment and wrote: “Poor staff, no help with recovery, very mean to me… I checked out after four days, learned nothing…”
On Google, 47 reviewers to date rated the Delta Med Center as a whole an average two out of five stars, with ten positive reviews, five mixed, and 32 negative.  Reviewers mostly complained of poor treatment from staff, misdiagnoses, and poor accommodations. Alum Iris, writing specifically about the behavioral health clinic, wrote that, although there were a few compassionate staff members, "So much verbal abuse to patients and overall disorganization. Patient privacy/confidentially is not remotely a concern. So many incompetent therapists. They treat patients like they ARE their sicknesses and nothing more."
