Edgefield Recovery Center Focus:

Opiate Addiction

Opiate Addiction Treatment Centers specialize in supporting those recovering from opioid addiction. They treat those suffering from addiction to illegal opioids like heroin, as well as prescription drugs like oxycodone. These centers typically combine both physical as well as mental and emotional support to help stop addiction. Physical support often includes medical detox and subsequent medical support (including medication), and mental support includes in-depth therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction.


The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning. Recovery and Maintenance are usually based on 12 step programs and AA meetings.

Mental Health and Substance Abuse

A combined mental health and substance abuse treatment center has the staff and resources available to handle individuals with both mental health and substance abuse issues. It can be challenging to determine where a specific symptom stems from (a mental health issue or an issue related to substance abuse), so mental health and substance abuse professionals are helpful in detangling symptoms and keeping treatment on track.

Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

Many of those suffering from addiction also suffer from mental or emotional illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, or anxiety disorders. Rehab and other substance abuse facilities treating those with a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder administer psychiatric treatment to address the person’s mental health issue in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation. Edgefield Recovery Center offers treatment for individuals with co-occurring diagnoses such as major depression or anxiety disorders.

Rehab Services:

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) | SAMHSA

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is the use of medications along with counseling and therapy to treat substance abuse. MAT is mainly used to treat opioid addictions (i.e. heroin and/or prescription drugs like OxyContin or Vicodin). Medications like buprenorphine are used in MAT to help normalize brain chemistry, block the effects of alcohol and/or opioids, relieve cravings, and stabilize body functions, making sobriety easier to maintain. All medications used are approved by the FDA, and every MAT program is tailored to the patient’s specific needs.

What does Edgefield Recovery Center offer?

Medically Assisted Detox

Detoxification (detox) refers to the period of withdrawal during which the body returns to homeostasis, or balance. At ERC, they do have established protocols to aid a person suffering from withdrawals. The physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual symptoms experienced during detox are addressed and minimized, and positive support for a successful rehabilitation begin while in detoxification.

24 Hour Clinical Care

At certain points in the recovery process, it’s important to have support available 24/7. 24-hour clinical care offers a safe environment in which to recover from drug or alcohol addiction in peace, knowing medical detox and other treatment will happen with professionals on hand. At Edgeview Recovery Center the nursing staff is present 24/7 and in position to make any adjustments necessary in a prompt and efficient manner.

Outpatient (OP)

Outpatient programs are for those seeking mental rehab or drug rehab, but who also stay at home every night. The main difference between outpatient treatment (OP) and intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) lies in the amount of hours the patient spends at the facility. Most of the time an outpatient program is designed for someone who has completed an inpatient stay and is looking to continue their growth in recovery. Outpatient is not meant to be the starting point, it is commonly referred to as aftercare.

Residential (inpatient) Treatment

A level of care that provides treatment, education, counseling, specialized groups, and programs designed to overcome substance abuse and dependency. Inpatient residential treatment can help achieve a substance free life, prevent or reduce the frequency of relapse, and maximize an individual's quality of life. Inpatient treatment programs can provide a safe environment to learn the effects of prolonged substance abuse through education, counseling, and groups that stress reducing risky behavior, building healthy relationships with friends that are drug/alcohol-free, and changing unhealthy lifestyle patterns. Inpatient treatment teaches individuals how to avoid triggers that may lead back to drinking or drug use, how to handle cravings, how to develop plans for handling stressful situations, and how to find appropriate recreational activities. During the residential treatment phase, the client will attend group throughout the week and receive a minimum of 15 hours of therapy each week. Clients are encouraged to participate in the recovery programs, individual treatment and community programs, and are required to provide documentation of such participation. During this period of time, clients will receive nursing assessments, psychosocial assessments, the development of their personal history, access to a psychiatrist, if needed, group and individual therapy, chemical dependency education, a family program, nutritional education, aftercare planning, relapse prevention planning, and access to exercise.

Intervention Services

Intervention Services helps family or friends of addicts stage an intervention, which is a meeting in which loved ones share their concerns and attempt to get an addict into treatment. Professional intervention specialists can help loved ones organize, gather, and communicate with an addict. They can guide intervention participants in describing the damage the addict's behavior is causing and that outside help is necessary to address the addiction. The ideal outcome of an intervention is for the addict to go to rehab and get the help they need.

Treatment Types:

Religion used during treatment

Religion used during treatment means a specific religion is used as the basis for care and treatment at a specific rehab facility or support group. Whether that faith is Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, or another religion, it is the central guiding principle behind the care. Counselors, support materials (like books or workbooks), and peers use that faith to support patients in finding their way to recovery. Surrendering to a higher power can be a relief to many patients, and religion can help those in recovery realize they're worthy or love and forgiveness. Connecting with their religion can provide patients a strong foundation for addiction recovery, and inspire comfort, support, and guidance in a deep, meaningful way.

Individualized Treatment

The purpose of an assessment is to gather the detailed information needed for a treatment plan that meets his/her individual needs. It's also a process for defining the nature of a particular problem, determining a diagnosis, and developing specific treatment recommendations for addressing the problem or diagnosis. This helps match a potential client with appropriate treatment services by providing careful diagnosis, appropriate case management, and successful treatment.


12-step programs are addiction recovery models based on Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). A number of substance abuse programs (including some drug and alcohol rehab centers) use the 12 steps as a basis for treatment. Beginning steps involve admitting powerlessness over the addiction and creating a spiritual basis for recovery. Edgefield Recovery Center is based on the 12 Step Principles of Alcoholic Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous and works to integrate its clients into outside community supports such as AA and NA.

Aftercare Support

At times, some addicts become complacent and place their recovery on the “back burner”. When this occurs, the person in recovery is at risk for relapse. It is extremely important for the recovering addict to learn the signs and symptoms of relapse and to develop a plan of action to prevent relapse from occurring. At ERC they assist their patients in learning and recognizing the signs and symptoms of relapse. They teach not only the “tools” of recovery, but the “tools” of relapse prevention as well.

Therapies Offered:

Family Therapy

Addiction does not just have a damaging effect upon the addict. It also severely damages other members of the addict's family. The objective of a Family Therapy Program is to mutually heal the chemically dependent person as well as the members of the family. The program educates the family on the causes and the effects of addiction. It also provides the family members with coping mechanisms in dealing with their addict and with suggestion in how they can lead a better, contented life themselves.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a therapy modality that focuses on the relationship between one's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It is used to establish and allow for healthy responses to thoughts and feelings (instead of unhealthy responses, like using drugs or alcohol). CBT has been proven effective for recovering addicts of all kinds, and is used to strengthen a patient's own self-awareness and ability to self-regulate. CBT allows individuals to monitor their own emotional state, become more adept at communicating with others, and manage stress without needing to engage in substance abuse.

Individual Therapy

Individual therapy helps chemically dependent individuals explore and develop effective coping mechanisms to deal with the problems associated with their alcohol and drug use. It offers an opportunity to explore how negative thought processes can fuel addictive behavior to assist the individual in identifying ways to begin to change these patterns. Individual therapy also allows further exploration of other barriers to recovery.

Trauma Therapy

Trauma therapy addresses traumatic incidents from a client's past that are likely affecting their present-day experience. Trauma is often one of the primary triggers and potential causes of addiction, and can stem from child sexual abuse, domestic violence, having a parent with a mental illness, losing one or both parents at a young age, teenage or adult sexual assault, or any number of other factors. The purpose of trauma therapy is to allow a patient to process trauma and move through and past it, with the help of trained and compassionate mental health professionals.

Group Therapy

In group treatment, their goal is to help patients to recognize and discard their defense systems. This will enable the patient to acquire a more accurate self-image. Seeing oneself through the eyes of their peers presents the patient with an image of himself/herself that is not attainable through an introspective process. In group patients are taught to share his/her feelings and thoughts. Defenses are often broken down by the truth delivered in a loving and caring way. Most chemical dependent persons are badly out of touch with their feelings and are hard wired to avoid pain. In group, one often discovers that they are not alone.

Life Skills

Life skills trainings involve all the skills a person must have in order to function successfully in the world. These include time management, career guidance, money management, and effective communication. Truly successful addiction recovery is based on the ability to not only live substance-free, but to thrive. Life skills teaches the practical necessities of functioning in society, which sets clients up for success in life, and therefore sobriety.

Nutrition Therapy

Nutrition therapy, aka medical nutrition therapy (MNT), is a way of treating physical, emotional, and medical conditions through diet. Specific dietary plans are designed by professional nutritionists or registered dietitians, and patients follow them in order to positively affect their physical and mental health.
