Hazel Pittman Center Focus:

Substance Abuse

Substance Abuse Treatment Centers focus on helping individuals recover from substance abuse, including alcohol and drug addiction (both illegal and prescription drugs). They often include the opportunity to engage in both individual as well as group therapy.

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.

Rehab Services:

Psychotropic Medication

Psychotropic medications (aka psychodynamic medication) are any medicines used specifically to affect and/or alter a patient’s mind, emotions, and behaviors. Such psychiatric medicines are often used to change chemical levels in the brain that impact a person’s mood and behavior. These medications include mood stabilizers, antidepressants, anti-ADHD drugs, and anti-anxiety medications.

What does Hazel Pittman Center offer?

Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

Intensive Outpatient (IOP) services are designed to meet the needs of those for whom substance use has become a significant, life-altering problem. Meeting Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 9:00 am until 12 pm for four weeks, this group guides clients to understand the way(s) their lives have become unmanageable and make the connections between the problems they are experiencing and their drugs of addiction. A major focus is helping the individual develop and implement a plan for long-term recovery.

Outpatient (OP)

The Hazel Pittman Center provides outpatient services. This means that people appropriate to receive clinical services from their staff are medically and emotionally stable and not in need of detoxification or inpatient services. While they can and will refer to other agencies for more intensive care, their clients do not have to leave their homes for more than a few hours to participate in treatment. Most attend counseling sessions between 1-4 times per week and remain in services until they have achieved their desired goals.

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:

Individualized Treatment

Each individual plan of care is developed between the client and his or her counselor. It is custom-tailored to fit the individual needs of the person receiving services. Your IPOC will be created after your assessment. It will be an agreement that details the goals and objectives towards which you are working and the recommended therapeutic services that will help you get to your desired outcomes.

Family Program

Research clearly demonstrates that recovery is far more successful and sustainable when loved ones like family members participate in rehab and substance abuse treatment. Genetic factors may be at play when it comes to drug and alcohol addiction, as well as mental health issues. Family dynamics often play a critical role in addiction triggers, and if properly educated, family members can be a strong source of support when it comes to rehabilitation.

Aftercare Support

Aftercare is a group offered for clients who have completed IOP or another treatment program, or have had previous success maintaining sobriety and recovery, but who need additional professional support. In Aftercare, counselors guide clients to examine personal recovery plans more closely, identify strategies that have been ineffective, and explore and implement alternate strategies that will lead to more positive outcomes.

Therapies Offered:

Individual Therapy

In individual therapy, a patient meets one-on-one with a trained psychologist or counselor. Therapy is a pivotal part of effective substance abuse treatment, as it often covers root causes of addiction, including challenges faced by the patient in their social, family, and work/school life.

Group Therapy

Group therapy is any therapeutic work that happens in a group (not one-on-one). There are a number of different group therapy modalities, including support groups, experiential therapy, psycho-education, and more. Group therapy involves treatment as well as processing interaction between group members.

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.

Hazel Pittman Center Highlights:

Educational services are designed to help individuals understand substance use disorders and other behavioral health problems, as well as identify personal factors that may increase risk level. Referrals can be made by employers, court system officials, school personnel, and parents or family members. While educational services can be provided individually, they are offered most often in one of two programs.
The Alcohol Education Program is an eight-hour diversionary program delivered in four consecutive 2-hour groups. Participants may be voluntary or court-required and are underage (17-20) drinking offenders who have been charged for the first time with purchasing, possessing and transferring alcohol. The program is designed to discourage future underage drinking by achieving attitude and behavior changes in young people.
ADSAP works with offenders to reduce the number of crashes that result in death, injury or property damage. ADSAP services are certified by the South Carolina Department of Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Services and are available in each of the state’s 46 counties.
The purpose of prevention is to educate community members on healthy lifestyles where alcohol and drugs are only used in legal and responsible ways. The Hazel Pittman Center offers an array of Prevention programs that implement various strategies to help prevent substance abuse and promote healthy lifestyles. These include: evidenced-based programming for school aged children; environmental prevention efforts such as Alcohol Compliance Checks, Tobacco Compliance Checks, Public Safety Checkpoints, Bar Checks, Party Dispersals, and Shoulder Taps; and community-based prevention efforts with participation in Coalitions, Health Fairs, Festivals, and public events. Prevention services are provided by professionals trained in substance abuse prevention and public health.
Hazel Pittman Center’s Treatment staff hold no less than a Master’s Degree in a counseling-related field and are either professionally licensed or in-process of obtaining a professional license. Additionally, all clinical staff must become certified as Addictions Counselors at the state or national level within three years of employment and go through a strict privileging process before they are allowed to deliver direct services to customers. Once certified, counselors must receive a minimum of 40 training hours every two years to retain their certifications.
Drug Screens are used as a therapeutic tool that help clients develop honesty about their use of substances and move forward on a path of recovery. Urine drug screening is the most widely used and most economical form of testing. Urine screens will test from 1-10 drugs and detection windows vary based on the drug(s) used. Results are available immediately, and a confirmation test can be obtained upon request by mailing the sample to a certified laboratory. Confirmation test results are typically available within 72 hours.
