Acute Detoxification Programs
For someone with an addiction, withdrawal can be medically dangerous and difficult. Detoxification services are the medical management of the physical withdrawal process from alcohol and/or other drugs in a residential or outpatient program. It is indicated when the individual experiences physiological dysfunction during withdrawal but life or significant bodily functions are not threatened.
The first step is for an assessment to be completed by our Intake Coordinator to determine the severity of the individual’s withdrawal symptoms and level of support needed during the detoxification process. This assessment will be reviewed with medical personnel to determine whether the individual will be admitted to a residential or outpatient setting based upon the amount of nursing and physician supervision necessary during the withdrawal process.
Recovery Place’s treatment philosophy is to develop a Plan of Care which provides services in the least restrictive, most empowering setting. This is an essential consideration for each individual’s plan of care. A person who needs detoxification can be admitted to our residential treatment program, with round-the-clock medical supervision or may only require partial hospitalization or day treatment. This empowers individuals by fostering independence. The average length of stay for residential detoxification is five to fourteen days. In addition to medical monitoring, clients will receive group counseling, psycho-education, individual counseling, and case management services.
Residential detoxification services in Savannah, GA are available to those needing 24-hour support. All clients will be assigned a primary therapist as well as a case manager to assist in linking them with continuing treatment, transportation, and other social services. Case managers will also facilitate their entry into a sober support network such as AA, NA or CA.

Level One Outpatient Program
Treatment services must be individually tailored to fit the needs of each person affected by a substance use disorder. Each person has different needs when it comes to substance abuse treatment. When patients first enter rehab, it is important that they are assigned to the proper level of care.
This approach to treatment, or continuum of care, ensures that clients receive adequate care on admission and are smoothly transitioned to a higher or lower level of care as needed. Level One Outpatient services require clients to attend regularly scheduled meetings. This level of care allows clients to carry on with their routine while receiving face-to-face services with licensed/certified professionals.
Level One care includes evaluation, treatment, and recovery follow-up services. It addresses the severity of the individual’s addiction, helps implement behavioral changes and ameliorates mental functioning. It can be a stepping stone for people who are not ready or willing to commit to a complete recovery program.
Individuals may attend services once to three times a week.

The Family Program offers the following:

Appropriate referrals for continuing counseling may also be made.
Survivor’s Workshop Therapy Program
The Survivor’s Workshop is designed to assist clients in recognizing and understanding “core issues” that are often barriers to recovery. These issues often involve childhood trauma and abuse and can be a hidden source of relapse. Once these issues are confronted, the healing process can begin as the client recognizes and experiences the intense emotions associated with childhood trauma.
The Survivor’s Workshop consists of three phases:
- The Educational Phase teaches clients about the nature of their boundary system and how boundary violations affect their growth from childhood to adulthood.
- The Experiential Phase allows the client to revisit the abusive “less than” experiences and process those feeling that are uncovered. This is with the guidance of an individual counselor.
- The Shame to Grace Phase focuses on a personal recovery plan and identifies ways to continue building a successful recovery program.
The Survivor’s Workshop also focuses on family of origin issues such as codependency, the nature of abuse, parenting styles, post inductions therapy, and personal recovery.
