LifeWays Community Mental Health (LCMH) is the leading agency for mental health and substance abuse treatment in the Jackson and Hillsdale Counties of Mississippi. With several locations spanning the two counties, clients have the opportunity to choose the location that best suits their recovery needs. The substance abuse treatment program offers both regular and Intensive Outpatient (IOP) services as well as an inpatient option.
Accommodations and Food
The accommodations for the residential treatment program are dormitory-style bedrooms in a fully-staffed facility. There are two clients of the same gender per room, with shared bathrooms on each floor. There is a common area with a cable TV, plenty of couches and a phone. There is also a laundry facility, a fully equipped kitchen and a dining area. Meals are served three times a day cafeteria-style and there are always salads, soups, cereal, sandwiches and other healthy options.
Treatment and Staff
If necessary, LifeWays Community Mental Health offers detox services in a medically monitored setting prior to individuals entering into the residential or outpatient programs. All of the clients must initially undergo a clinical drug and alcohol evaluation to determine which track would suit them best and to develop an individualized treatment plan. LifeWays Community Mental Health is a dual diagnosis equipped facility therefore it’s also a solid option for those struggling with co-occurring disorders. Methadone treatment is also offered in addition to the outpatient treatment. The counselors and doctors on staff will prescribe and monitor the medication throughout the course of treatment.
The residential program is 30 days and for those seeking outpatient treatment at LCMH, there are two tracks: standard outpatient and IOP. These tracks follow the ASAM I and the ASAM II.1 guidelines for treatment and care, and all therapies are based in CBT methodology. Treatment consists of individual and group therapy, educational seminars, holistic approaches such as nutrition planning and mindfulness training, relapse prevention and life and social skills training.
Those in the regular outpatient track typically attend individual therapy once a week and group therapy twice a week. Those in the IOP typically attend individual therapy once or twice a week and group therapy three times a week. The frequencies of the other treatment modalities are determined by the individual client’s need for them. The only difference between the outpatient programs and the residential program is the hours in therapy per week. Clients attend sessions several times a day rather than several times a week
In addition to the comprehensive substance abuse treatment programs, LifeWays Community Mental Health also offers an array of other services to its clients and community members. Some of these include mental health counseling, outreach programs, prevention programs, community education services and the facilitation of interventions.
The substance abuse program at LifeWays Community Mental Health offers a variety of options through its structured residential program, IOP and standard outpatient track. Clients in the program receive the level of care best suited for them through a variety of different evidence-based treatment modalities, giving them a strong foundation in recovery.
