Specialization

12-Step

The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.

Dual Diagnosis/ Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.

    My wife went through treatment here. What they don\'t tell you when call for help is that the facility is located in a very unsafe part of Jackson, Tennessee. I didn\'t feel good leaving my wife there. They are very disorganized. The staff while caring spends much time in their offices with their coworkers talking and aren\'t available for the residents. They were unwilling to address my wife\'s food allergies and don\'t offer alternative choices for eating. There was no communication between myself and the counselor assigned my wife. I called 17 times and never received a return call. The facility itself is run down and dirty. It looks like it hasn\'t been updated since the 70\'s. My wife was miserable while there and the men and women sleep on the same hall. They have no janitorial staff the residents of the program are responsible for cleaning, mopping, and dusting. By God\'s grace my wife has been sober for 2 years but not until she attended treatment at Cumberland Heights in Nashville. This program did nothing for her but leave us in debt. We were told upon admission she would only be responsible for a small amount upon completion but this was a lie. Someone needs to tell the truth about this place. It is a joke and I\'d never recommend this place to anyone.

    Well trained and compassionate workers with evidence based treatment. Number of beds available was small. I have met with workers and facilities and they show a high level of dedication to rehab and personal experience to help connect and identify with the issue.

    There are good counselors and group therapy. However, there is no meditation or yoga or relaxation exercises. I liked the group therapy and games. the food and nutrition is good.

    I turned 44 years old while in treatment and really thought I was too old to change. I had went so far down that I didn't believe change was even possible. I had truly given up on myself and life in genera;. Rehab didn't "give me my life back", it gave me a life I never knew was possible. I learned and continue to learn so much about myself, what makes me tick, what makes me feel good inside and proud of myself. I fell I have a gigantic ego with little to no self-esteem when I got there. In treatment, I "dried" out and were given the tools to learn how to live. How to life a life without alcohol and drugs. A life I can be content with and proud of. I can lift my head up and look folks in the eye today. No, I don't work The Program perfectly, but it's all about progress, not perfection. I have to remain honest and willing to change always. Some days the only thing I feel that I've done right, is not drink or do drugs. I make lots of mistakes but nothing even closely compared to the mistakes I used to make! I do have new life. I am a contributing member of society. I am a good person. God does have a purpose for me (somedays I'm not sure what) I don't always know what to do- but I do know what not to do and life just gets better and better~one day at a time.
