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.

On a case-by-case basis, 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 five 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 clients 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 clients on the road to lasting recovery.

During this extended inpatient stay, clients have the opportunity to look closely at how substance use has affected them and their loved ones. Through this process, clients 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
  • Access to Trac9 Relapse Prevention Program

Short-Term Inpatient

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 clients 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

At Willingway, it is our belief that some individuals who are addicted to alcohol or drugs 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 one day at a time. Each residential program and location is 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 early recovery.

Features of extended residential treatment include:

  • Gender-specific programs
  • Lengths of stay from 90 days to 18 months
  • Varying levels of accountability
  • Individual and group therapy
  • Opportunities to return to work and school
  • Life skills classes
  • Community service involvement
  • Budget and financial management instructions

Men’s Programs

Women’s Programs

Sober Living Environment (SLE)

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 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:

  • Tailored to meet individual needs both financial and clinical
  • Work is required to be financially responsible
  • Length of stay ranges from 90 days to 18 months

Outpatient Services

Located in Statesboro, Willingway Outpatient provides a host of services that can meet the needs of each client. From individual counseling to group therapy, Willingway Outpatient provides a level of treatment that is perfectly suited to those who want help.

Adult Outpatient

Adults who have experienced negative consequences as a result of their substance use could benefit from Willingway Outpatient’s treatment program. Some of these consequences may include strained family relations, legal troubles, financial woes, physical problems, workplace difficulties, and more. Adult outpatient offerings include:

  • Intensive Outpatient – 4 days per week, 3 hours daily
  • Outpatient – individual counseling
  • Family Program
  • Drug Screens
  • Education and Community Outreach

Group Therapy in the adult program is geared toward learning to live without mood-altering chemicals. Our 12-Step philosophy is enhanced with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and incorporates a variety of offerings to promote long-term recovery.

Continuing Care Community Groups

Each client discharged from one of our programs will receive aftercare recommendations. If an individual is returning home to an area that can access one of Willingway’s thirteen continuing care community groups, 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. These groups are open to anyone, not only those who have been through Willingway.

REFOCUS Relapse Track at The Pines
