Bluff Plantation provides comprehensive substance abuse treatment options that helps men and women break free of addiction while building a foundation for lasting change. As a dual diagnosis treatment center with integrated treatment for dual disorders, a high level of onsite medical care and a wide range of clinical, holistic and experiential therapies, Bluff Plantation has the expertise and resources to assist patients in achieving a life of peace, health and happiness in recovery.
People with alcohol and drug addiction often have co-occurring mental health disorders – mental illnesses such as depression, bipolar disorders, anxiety disorders or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Drinking and drug use may be an attempt to relieve the symptoms of mental health disorders. Bluff Plantation has psychiatrists on staff who assess, diagnose and treat dual disorders. Effectively treating mental health conditions improves well-being and brings the individual a greater sense of peace – necessary for sustained sobriety.
People who have suffered traumatic experiences may self-medicate with drugs and alcohol to relieve distressing emotions or temporarily forget painful memories. The use of substances or having judgment clouded due to being under the influence may also lead people to put themselves into dangerous situations, in which traumatizing experiences are more likely to occur.
Our therapists specialize in trauma-informed care, which avoids re-traumatizing the individual. By creating a compassionate and healing environment and through the use of specific techniques such as EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing), we help patients feel safe and empowered, so that they can process traumatic experiences and heal.
