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.
