Our Treatment Programs

Willingway offers a complete continuum of care.

Confidential Assessments

Pre-admission assessment – To begin the treatment process, a confidential, essential pre-admission evaluation is administered over the phone by highly trained and caring Willingway admission coordinators. After the evaluation, the medical staff then reviews the information to determine if help is needed for alcohol and/or drug use and to possibly recommend treatment options or make further recommendations. All assessments are confidential. Admission coordinators are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Counselor assessment – Performed by a staff physician or certified addiction counselor, this assessment consists of a complete medical and substance abuse history. Some other assessed areas include the individual’s withdrawal potential and emotional/behavioral conditions and complications.

For professionals, we offer a mental-physical evaluation (MPE) assessment and/or a 96 hour evaluation.

Medically Managed Detoxification

Detoxification is the most intensive level of care that Willingway provides. With more than four decades of proven experience, we are the ideal care provider for complex medical cases. Guided by our ASAM-certified medical director, our medical team has refined a detox protocol that protects against the seizures often associated with symptoms of withdrawal so that patients can remain as comfortable as possible. Willingway is also highly regarded for our expertise in treating high-level methadone and suboxone addiction. Our medical staff is able to safely treat individuals who have abused almost all combinations and amounts of mood-altering chemicals, including alcohol, street drugs, prescription drugs, methadone, and others.

Long-Term Inpatient Residential

This level of care is the next step in the treatment process. This program typically lasts 4-6 weeks, combining a multitude of therapeutic modalities. Group, individual, recreational therapy, family counseling, 12-step meetings, and educational programs set patients on the road to lasting recovery.

During this extended inpatient stay, patients have the opportunity to look closely at how substance use has affected them and their loved ones. Through this process, patients can process life events intimately tied to their addictions and learn new tools for living free of mood-altering chemicals.

Features of this program include:

  • Gender-specific issue groups
  • Five-day integrated family program
  • Group therapy
  • Relapse prevention
  • Spirituality and self-care
  • 12-step recovery education and meetings

Short-Term Inpatient Residential

For those individuals who may not need a longer inpatient stay or whose life circumstances prevent them from doing so, we offer the option of our short-term residential program.

The average length of stay for short-term residential is approximately 2-4 weeks, but these patients can still gain the full benefit of the Willingway experience with a targeted, comprehensive approach to recovery. Integration into 12-step recovery begins immediately, as do additional educational groups and Coping Strategies Groups.

Features of this program include:

  • Group therapy
  • Relapse prevention
  • Spirituality and self-care
  • 12-step recovery education and meetings
  • Private rooms and baths
  • Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT)

Extended Treatment Services

Extended Residential

Willingway’s recovery residences provide a supportive, structured environment where individuals can build skills for living sober a day at a time. We often recommend extended treatment for inpatients when:

  • It appears that their chances for recovery are increased by long term treatment
  • The risk of returning to their previous living situation is such that their continued sobriety is threatened.

Located throughout Statesboro, the recovery houses are also a good option for those who could benefit from a recovery environment but do not require inpatient treatment.

Features of extended residential treatment include:

  • Gender specific programs
  • Lengths of stay from 6-18 months
  • Varying levels of accountability
  • Group therapy
  • Opportunities to return to work and school
  • Life skills classes
  • Community service involvement

Sober Living Environment (SLE)

SLE Programs are designed for men and women who have a high level of motivation in developing 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 required, individuals who demonstrate a continued positive attitude, motivation, and willingness, are able to earn privileges such as cell phones, vehicles, and family visits. Participants are required to obtain a job in order to be, at least in part, financially responsible for treatment.

Features of SLE include:

  • Treatment is tailored to meet individual needs
  • Work is required to be financially responsible
  • Minimum six-month commitment
  • Average length of stay is 12 months

Outpatient Services

The Willingway Outpatient Program in Statesboro is our least intensive level of care, accessed directly from the community or after stepping down from another Willingway program. Outpatient services provide group counseling five days a week, three hours a day, but each patient participates as his or her individualized treatment plan recommends. One individual counseling session is also a part of the outpatient program.

Features of Outpatient include:

  • Group therapy
  • Relapse prevention
  • Spirituality and self-care
  • 12-step recovery education and meetings
  • Coping strategies groups

Continuing Care Groups

Each patient discharged from one of our programs will receive aftercare recommendations. If a patient is returning home to an area that can access one of Willingway’s thirteen continuing care meetings, we highly encourage them to do so. These weekly meetings are facilitated by volunteers who are friends of Willingway, and there is never a cost to attend. They are the ideal place for anyone who is recovering from substance abuse or is a family member or friend of someone with an addictive illness. All can receive support and encouragement from people who have travelled the road to recovery before them or who have experience, strength, and hope to share with others.
