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.
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.
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:
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 inpatient program.
The average length of stay for short-term inpatient 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:
At Willingway, it is our belief that some alcoholics and addicts have a better chance for lasting recovery if they are exposed to a period of time in extended treatment. We have created several residential recovery homes throughout Statesboro, Georgia, to provide a supportive, structured environment where individuals can build skills for living sober a day at a time. Each residential program and location are distinctly different from the others. Since we know that our residents have varying clinical needs and levels of motivation to be substance-free, we go to great lengths to make sure the program selected is the right fit for the individual. These gender-separate programs are uniquely created to meet the needs of many who are in the early recovery.
Features of extended residential treatment include:
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:
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:
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.
