Statistics indicate that drug abuse or drug addiction, the seemingly perpetual social issue, costs the United States more than $484 billion yearly, taking into account lost job wages, traffic accidents, crime, health care costs as well as criminal justice system costs. Needless to say, drug addiction and alcoholism play key roles in driving accidents, violence, stress and human rights abuse, ultimately destroying lives.
With the definitive goal of helping alcohol and drug dependents get back to their normal lives, professional rehabilitation programs have been created. An alcohol rehab center is expected draw on research, experience and community to raise the odds of treatment success.
Founded in 1993, Palmetto Addiction Recovery Center is a treatment facility in the United States that provides specialized programs for addiction treatment. This Alcohol rehab center has been effectively treating, for more than 15 years, male and female patients with alcohol and drug dependencies. Palmetto's staff includes addictionists, psychiatrists, psychologists, certified substance abuse counselors, Masters Level social workers, and a comprehensive nursing staff.
At PalmettoCenter.com, the goal of treatment for every client is to give them every opportunity to develop the coping skills necessary to build a long term, self-sustaining recovery based on abstinence from alcohol, drugs, and other mood and mind altering addictions.
"Treatment centers often use a rigid approach to treatment that requires the patient to “plug in” to a fixed treatment program without careful evaluation. This approach to treatment often results in instances of misdiagnosis and mistreatment of the patient. A primary goal at Palmetto is to ensure that this does not occur," Palmetto COO Darren Davis, RPh, explains.
Located on scenic Lake Lafourche in the northeast Louisiana region of “Sportsman’s Paradise", Palmetto Addiction Recovery Center's 70-acre campus includes 11 cabins, an administrative building, a pavilion, a fully equipped gym, as well as tennis, basketball and volleyball courts.
Before admission to any of Palmetto’s Addiction programs, clients go through a comprehensive evaluation to assess all aspects of the patient’s symptoms and living situation. The Center provides a medical examination to identify any medical problems resulting from substance abuse, and to properly manage any concurrent medical conditions. A thorough psychosocial and substance abuse evaluation follows, as well as psychological testing and psychiatric evaluations, which data are used to formulate an individual treatment plan.
