Shoreline Behavioral Health Services has provided substance abuse recovery programs for the residents of Horry County, South Carolina since 1973. A private, not-for-profit organization, Shoreline offers an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), a traditional Outpatient Program for men and women, residential treatment for women at risk of losing their children and aftercare for all clients. Shoreline is located in Conway, a small town not too far from Myrtle Beach.
Accommodations and Food
The women’s recovery home provides treatment for up to 10 women at a time in a residential, four-bedroom home. Privacy is increased with length of stay, so clients start three to a room and progress to single occupancy. Cooking and cleaning duties are shared among the clients, with chores an essential part of Shoreline’s treatment program. Meals are home-cooked, nutritious and cater to only serious allergies and dietary restrictions.
Treatment and Staff
Women entering residential treatment must have children under 18 at the time of admission. Inpatient treatment consists of 40 hours of group therapy weekly, with individual CBT as needed, usually once a week. Groups focus on parenting, anger management, general recovery issues and life skills. Clients are taken to six off-site AA or NA meetings each week. They are also led through guided meditations and family therapy. Family day is each Sunday, with visitation allowed from noon to 5 pm. This program typically lasts from 60 to 90 days, with a step down to one of the outpatient programs before graduating to aftercare. Detox services not provided, as there is no medical staff on-site. Clients with co-occurring disorders are able to take medications, but not offered additional dual diagnosis support.
The IOP services are offered in three hour sessions three times each week. The groups focus on relapse prevention and addiction education. The program is self-paced, meaning clients attend at that intensity for as long as they need. Clients then graduate to the regular outpatient program, which meets twice weekly for group and individual therapy sessions. These sessions focus on the difference between use, abuse and dependence, relationship and stress management, coping strategies and community support. Specific outpatient programs for women and adolescents are also available, and are tailored to the needs of these groups.
Inpatient clients enjoy trips to the beach and various outdoor activities, like a ropes course.
Aftercare is provided for clients that have completed one of the programs and is offered once a week. The group focuses on relapse prevention, advanced life skills building and strategies to promote long term abstinence from drugs and alcohol.
Staff is available to work with clients that have violated Department of Transportation regulations, and assist with assessments, treatment and follow up evaluations.
The Recovering Professionals program is dedicated to assisting medical personnel that have substance abuse and related issues in a confidential and compassionate way.
Shoreline Behavioral Health Services provide a range of services for adults struggling with substance abuse and gambling addiction. The inpatient program for women with children is highly structured and keeps clients occupied throughout the week with recovery-based and fun extra-curricular activities. This, along with a highly structured and intensive outpatient program, allows clients to build strong foundations in recovery.
