Palmetto ARC started my foundation in AA, however, I do not believe they are a good center for individuals with mental illness or young adults. I was asked to leave the facility after 25 days because of mental illness, however after leaving I had a relapse and have now been clean and sober since 4/16/04 so I owe some measure of gratitude to Palmetto.
The professionals at Palmetto Addiction Recovery Center have provided high quality Chemical Dependency Treatment for more than 20 years in Louisiana and nationwide. Palmetto offers care for male and female adults(18 and older) faced with the challenges of alcoholism and drug dependencies. Our treatment team has over 250 years of experience with recovery and treatment of addictions along with treatment for patients afflicted with coexisting psychiatric disorders. The staff at Palmetto includes addictionists, psychiatrists, psychologists, certified substance abuse counselors, masters level social workers, and a comprehensive nursing staff. At Palmetto, we believe that addiction is a primary drive that must be managed through education, cognitive restructuring,
therapies, and the experience of learning to live addiction free. Each of these processes helps our clients to unearth the issues that drive their addiction and learn how to halt the addictive response. In doing so, clients begin to recover from the shame and guilt that surrounds their illness, and learn how to relate to self and others in healthier ways. The goal of treatment for every client who enters Palmetto is that they are given every opportunity to develop the coping skills necessary to build a long term, self-sustaining recovery based on abstinence from alcohol, drugs, and other mood and mind altering addictions.
