Treatment and Staff
Before beginning treatment, all clients go through an initial intake and assessment process to help the staff develop their treatment plans. Although detox services are not available on-site, those in need can get referrals to outside programs. While the specifics of each program may vary, all plans include individual and group therapy rooted in evidence-based practices including CBT and Motivational Interviewing (MI). The program is 12-step based and also includes support for basic co-occurring disorders like depression and anxiety. In addition to addiction-specific topics, groups also discuss parenting, life skills and anger management. Though lengths of stay are flexible, as clients progress through the program they also work with case managers on any outstanding legal issues and relapse prevention strategies.
The facility also offers daycare services for children while the women are in treatment during the day. As part of the larger Volunteers of America Southeast, other standalone mental health counseling services and assessments are available as well. Those in need of stepped down aftercare services can also attend further outpatient therapy or work with staff members to set up other plans.
In all, Pines Family Campus is a well-rounded treatment facility which offers women and their children a safe and flexible program for early recovery. Treatment includes evidence-based practices, 12-step integration and dual diagnosis support.
