Housed in an historic building from the early 1900s, Courtland Center in Lynchburg, Virginia has been offering drug and alcohol rehabilitation since the 1970s. It provides detox, including Suboxone, in addition to short-term crisis stabilization, residential and outpatient treatment, and dual diagnosis support. The facility is part of the larger Horizon Behavioral Health network, which serves adults and adolescents who require full-time medical and/or psychological stabilization due to severe and prolonged alcohol or drug use.
Accommodations and Food
In the 16-bed facility, 10 beds accommodate clients who are undergoing crisis stabilization and six are reserved for clients who have completed stabilization and are starting treatment. The double-occupancy rooms, which are located in gender-separated areas, contain a tall wardrobe, bedside table and single bed for each occupant. Residents are encouraged to use the communal area, which also serves as the activity room and space for group meetings. On the recreational side, this area has a TV, board games and puzzles.
Meals are served three times a day in the cafeteria, though food is delivered to the rooms of clients undergoing crisis stabilization. There is also a kitchenette in the sleeping area for snacks and beverages.
Treatment and Staff
The initial comprehensive assessment, which may last for several hours, includes basic client information as well as approvals and consent. A certified medical professional experienced in crisis stabilization performs a comprehensive intake mental health and substance abuse diagnostic evaluation. Family and friends are encouraged to visit the client during this intensive withdrawal phase of treatment to lend support and encouragement. Counseling, consultations and updates can be made available to concerned individuals with the client’s permission.
Courtland Center offers a full range of evidence-based crisis-stabilization measures including medication, therapy and case management. A client must be determined to be mentally and physically capable of proceeding with treatment and no longer in need of stabilization to begin long-term residential treatment.
Treatment at Courtland Center consists of around-the-clock residential psychiatric and nursing services and supportive individual and group therapy. Evidence-based treatments such as CBT, DBT and motivational interviewing (MI) are employed to examine the causes and effects of substance abuse and offer alternative behaviors. Groups address the events and experiences that have brought clients to treatment, relapse prevention, models for healthy behavior and strategies for sustainable sobriety.
The staff at Courtland Center is a multidisciplinary treatment team educated and trained in group and individual psychoeducation therapy, social work and substance abuse counseling. The staff-to-client ratio is one-to-four.
Outpatient and aftercare services are offered. Pregnant and postpartum women, DUI offenders, persons with special language needs, the hearing impaired and HIV/AIDS patients can receive services and participate in programs.
Prospective clients may visit the facility Mondays through Fridays from 8:30 am to 11:45 am.
