Assisted Recovery Center of Georgia, which opened in 2000, was one of the first chemical-based alternatives to traditional 12-step based treatment programs. At this facility in the charming city of Savannah, Georgia, clients can skip the 12 steps and tackle their addictions in other ways. In addition to science and medical intervention, Assisted Recovery Center of Georgia believes in luxury and freedom. A 24-hour concierge service and real world, off-campus privileges make rehab life a little bit easier.
Accommodations and Food
Clients have the luxury of staying in two-bedroom suites at Savannah’s Marriott Hotel. While the suites provide plenty of space and privacy, an assigned monitor occupies the second bedroom, providing round-the-clock care for the client. Each suite features king-sized beds, two spacious bathrooms, a living room with a flat screen television and a full kitchen. When it comes time for individual therapy, clients are transported down the street to the main facility, an office building where therapy is conducted in one of several small, comfortable rooms.
One of the benefits of living in a hotel is having full access to its amenities. For those wishing to swim some laps, an indoor, Olympic-sized pool is available during the day. A full, state-of-the-art gym is also just a short walk and elevator ride away from the suites.
The days start with a hotel-prepared, complimentary breakfast buffet. Occasionally, a dinner meal is also an option for those who feel like eating in. However, clients also have the option of dining out (with a monitor) or ordering takeout. For those who enjoy cooking, the monitors can also arrange for weekly grocery visits and often help prepare food in the suite’s kitchen. Besides the complimentary breakfast and occasional hotel dinner, all meals and grocery items are considered out-of-pocket expenses.
In addition to receiving medication (clients may be prescribed Suboxone or Naltrexone), clients attend individual counseling with a licensed therapist several times week. During these sessions, CBT and other cognitive restructuring methods are utilized. While most of the therapy is one-on-one, group therapy is offered on occasion, focusing on topics like life skills and self-esteem. an alternative to the 12 steps, off-site AA/NA meetings are available to those clients who wish to try them out.
Detox can be provided in the comfort of the suites at no additional cost.
Although the client’s monitor is there with them 24/7, a nurse only comes into the suite three times a day to check vital signs and dispense meds. The monitors at this facility are staff members who have worked at Assisted Recovery Center of Georgia for several years. The rest of the staff consists of a visiting physician, clinical director, nurse and clinical therapists.
With access to a 24-hour concierge service, residents can arrange services such as massages, chiropractors, facials, personal training and acupuncture in the comfort of their suite though none of these services are included in the price. Clients are also allowed to do almost anything off-site as long as their monitor is with them buy they will need extra cash for outside activities such as shopping, movies and restaurants.
At Assisted Recovery Center of Georgia, clients can experience therapy and the option of 12-step as well as access to medication if desired in luxury accommodations.
