Treatment Options at Saint Simons By-The-Sea
Treatment options provided by the Saint Simons By-The-Sea are as follows:
Residential treatment has been and always will be the best option for addiction patients. At the Saint Simons By-The-Sea, the patients who participate in the residential treatment take part in both individual and group therapy in order to get better as fast as possible. What is so special about the residential treatment at the Saint Simons By-The-Sea is the fact that here, the staff has cut the traditional 28-days treatment period which is found in most rehabilitation centers to only 14-days while at the same time they achieve even better results as compared with other rehabilitation centers.
Dual Diagnosis Treatment
A dual diagnosis treatment is an option for patients that suffer both from abuse or addiction of some kind, while at the same time they are struggling with the symptoms of a psychiatric disorder such as depression or bipolar disorder. This treatment plan binds the most effective treatment techniques for both the psychiatric disorder itself and the addiction as well in order to help the patient achieve success in getting better and preventing any relapse in the near future.
As usual, detoxification is available to the patients at the Saint Simons By-The-Sea as well. However, if the patients have completed their detoxification process at another place or it is estimated that they are not in need of one, then they can right away continue to begin their treatment.
