Specialization

  • Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

    Patients who undergo intensive outpatient treatment continue to live at home and sometimes go to school or work while participating in a highly structured treatment protocol that is focused on ending substance abuse. Programs vary in terms of how much treatment patients receive, how often and for how long. Some facilities design individualized intensive outpatient treatment programs.
  • 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 son was a combat Marine, serving tours in Fallujah and Ramadi, and currently suffers PTSD, and alcohol dependency. He admitted himself to 3 Rivers, having been unable to negotiate the hurdles to receiving care at the VA. As a parent and retired psychologist, I believe I have a reasonable idea regarding the etiology of my son\'s pathologies. The six day course of \"evaluation\" and \"treatment\" at 3 Rivers exposed nothing short of incompetence and malpractice in my opinion. He was abruptly diagnosed with a severe mood disorder, had his current medication regimen stopped, completely changed, and then abruptly reversed 48 hours later, and was discharged with little more than an outdated list of AA meetings and a referral to the VA. He would have been clinically better off spending a week in a homeless shelter.

I was treated very poorly and without respect. I am a professional with a 4-yr college degree and didn't like being treated like I had a moral shortcoming. I have the disease of addiction. In three days, we were allowed outside for 45 minutes total. Facility was extremely cold and the food was extremely salty . If you got to know the staff, they began to treat you like a human being. They're not all bad.

The treatment at this facility seems better than other similar facilities. The patients were given chances to socialize as well as exercise. Security was a top priority here. The facility has very good physicians and counselors. The layout of the facility helps aid patient recovery. The facility is limited in space.

Wish they had dual diagnosis. The doctors and therapists were knowledgeable. No exercise, or means of relaxation for anxiety. Cost, and ways to pay.
