ABOUT THE CAROLINA CENTER FOR BEHAVIORAL HEALTH

Located on a quiet street in Greer, S. C., the Carolina Center for Behavioral Health offers treatment for individuals struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. The facility provides residential care, partial hospitalization programs (PHP), and intensive outpatient (IOP) programs to teens, adults, and seniors. A crisis intervention and stabilization program is also available, as well as medical detox services. The facility is one of only two, non-hospital residential detox facilities in the state.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

The Carolina Center for Behavioral Health begins treatment with a comprehensive assessment to develop an individualized care plan. Treatment methods are based on 12-step principles, as are 72.2 percent of facilities in South Carolina. It offers a 24-hour assessment and referral service, so that new clients may seek help at any time of day. Assessments last up to 45 minutes.

During detox, clients are monitored by nurses and physicians or an addiction specialist 24 hours per day. The detox program also uses motivational interviewing (MI) for further assessment purposes. Following detox, a short-term residential program offering individual and group therapy is available. Dually diagnosed clients may also receive ongoing medication management to alleviate any psychiatric symptoms.

During residential care, visitation and phone hours are limited to allow clients to focus on their recovery. However, family members are encouraged to participate in a family education session once per week.

An intensive outpatient (IOP) program meets for three hours, three times a week. IOP provides treatments focusing on developing coping skills. It uses group therapy and educational sessions on topics such as relapse prevention, 12-step orientation, relationships, and communications.

Specialized programing is available for different age groups, including program tracks for teens and seniors. They focus on age-specific coping and sober living skills alongside education about addiction and recovery.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

My mother, who suffers from a personality disorder, was able to convince the doctors there that they should not have any input from her children or spouse on her history/past behaviors. Because of this, she was not properly diagnosed.

Secure but needs better cleaning, Support of elderly is lacking. This facility, while I am sure has its highlights, was not good for my elderly grandmother who suffered a mental break. She was basically just left to lie in bed all day with no stimulation and no help taking showers and using the bathroom. The only good thing they did was help her regulate her medications. Even that process was sketchy.
