Often, an individual who has a serious substance use disorder may require longer term treatment than the inpatient program. These individuals may have a history of chronic relapse, legal or serious family issues, or have had multiple treatments in the past. Extended Treatment/SLE Programs are designed for men and women who have a high level of motivation to develop a sober lifestyle as well as enough willingness to live within the structure and guidelines of the program. With only a moderate level of accountability provided, individuals who demonstrate a continued positive attitude, motivation, and willingness may earn privileges such as cell phone access and family visits. After they have demonstrated compliance with program rules and active participation in treatment, they may be approved to obtain a job in order to be, at least in part, financially responsible for treatment. Some of the residents will be able to continue their education endeavors such as working toward a GED or even enrolling at Georgia Southern University, also located in Statesboro.
