ABOUT LIFE HELP REGION VI MENTAL HEALTH CENTER
A nonprofit organization with more than 40 years of experience, Life Help Region VI Mental Health Center offers a wide range of services for those struggling with a mental health, behavioral, or substance abuse disorders, including residential and intensive outpatient (IOP) treatment. The main office and several gender-specific residential units are located throughout Greenwood, Miss., with additional centers in surrounding counties.
Within Mississippi, Life Help is among 24.7 percent of substance abuse treatment facilities that provide long-term residential, non-hospital care.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Clients at Life Help start with an intake assessment that includes a psychosocial evaluation to develop an individualized treatment plan and determine and appropriate level of care. Each client has a primary counselor, who acts in the capacity of a mentor and recovery coach. Expectant mothers receive priority admission into the program. Clients with co-occurring substance abuse disorders also are recommended for residential treatment and aftercare services.
Alcohol and drug treatment services include residential treatment at Denton House, which lasts for a minimum of 30 days. During residential care, clients receive intensive individual therapy, group therapy, as well as engage in psycho-educational classes and 12-step meetings.
Life Help offers a special residential track for clients with opioid dependency. These clients typically stay for as long as 90 days at Denton House and at the Darden House secondary treatment center, which offers a transitional program. This phase focuses on reintegration and job skills training while clients continue to participate in counseling as well as other recovery-oriented activities.
The IOP meets three nights per week for 10 consecutive weeks. Designed for clients who do not need primary residential treatment, IOP includes individual therapy, educational classes, and group therapy. A specialized IOP is also available for adolescents (A-IOP) from age 12 to 18 who are struggling with substance use.
Adolescent clients engage in individual therapy, skills development, psycho-educational classes, drug and alcohol refusal training, and relapse prevention techniques. The facility also sponsors alcohol and drug prevention services, targeted to youth from 12 to 17 years and young adults to age 25, as well as recovery support services to reduce the risk of relapsing. In Mississippi, the facility is among the 29.2 percent of facilities to provide specialized programming for adolescents.
Life Help is certified and partially funded by the Mississippi Department of Mental Health. The organization employs a team of master’s level clinicians, therapists, social workers, psychologists, and case managers.
