Treatment includes exploration of how psychological disorders contributed to clients' chemical dependency, and the island setting ensures privacy and anonymity, enabling residents to concentrate completely on their treatment.

Specialization

  • 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.
  • 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.

I stayed in the adolescence unit and my depression got worse due to "suck it up” attitude of the therapist.

This place is heaven sent they took me in when I had a serious Alcohol problem and in bad shape. I could not even do the paper work I was shaking so bad. There is some good people who work at this place, I wish I knew the nurse that real took good care of me. She told me she never lets her patients suffer. I wish I could thank her in person one day.I stayed here a week and then went to Willing Way for longer treatment but SSI is where I changed my thinking and I give them the most credit for getting me sober. They did more for me in a week than Willing way did for me in a month. But I am 9 months sober thanks to the great people who runs this place.

    This was the biggest joke for treatment I have ever seen in my life. Sasha and yoga were the only valuable remnants of therapy. The kitchen staff was not even nice without a doctor’s order. It took five days to get that. Otherwise, eating faster than the speed of light was necessary. Tepid is not a good description of the staff. Lawyers have been called. Go to Ridgeview in Atlanta, if you have a choice.
