Palmetto Addiction Recovery Center has been helping people recover from addiction for more than 20 years. Our team of caring professionals share over 250 years of experience in breaking the cycle of this devastating, chronic disease. We believe recovery must occur in three areas: physical, emotional and spiritual. Our program is designed to address all three of these key areas from day one. Our facilities and staff provide an environment that encourages a return to basic living skills, development of non-addictive coping skills, recognition of character defects, development of a non self-centered way of living, and a spiritual approach to life.

Facility Highlights

  • Palmetto offers a full continuum of care with treatment that is both effective and cost efficient
  • Bringing hope and lasting recovery to individuals and families since 1993
  • Thorough evaluations and individual treatment plans

Specialization

  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
    EMDR is a highly specific, research-validated form of therapy that can help people overcome traumatic stress, anxiety and depression. With EMDR, a trained practitioner uses bilateral stimulation, eye movement and touch to stimulate parts of the brain as a patient recounts certain experiences and memories as a way to more thoroughly process uncomfortable, painful feelings.
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
    The focus of cognitive behavioral therapy (also called CBT) is helping people to understand the thoughts and emotions that underlie their addiction with the goal of learning new, healthier and more productive ways to understand and express themselves.

avoid this scam! It is a miserable experience..horrible food, living quarters, and staff! Treatment is questionable at best. If you like being treated like a prisoner, this is the place for you.

I don’t recommend anyone come to this place if they have any respect for themselves. Perhaps that is what they are counting on. The counselors are dishonest and everyone is guilty until proven otherwise. If you truly have a choice, shop around. They will lie and believe their own lies, therefore proving that you need to stay longer than you actually need to. They threaten you and force you to willingly submit yourself to their brainwashing and convince you that you’re worse than you are. The only legitimate provider there is the medical doctor “addictionologist.” Perhaps this works for some but the educated person will steer clear of these people. Unfortunately for some, they are the only ones recognized by their “board” and basically have a monopoly. There is no way they get 4 stars!! They may have been good in the past but they are absolutely not the place to go now. The meals are all made by the people who are inpatient.

    This place is not fit for humans. I am lucky that I survived without dying from a mental disorder. They allow the other patients (former drug users) to belittle you and treat you very badly. It was verbal and mental abuse behind my comprehension. If you care about your loved one, do not send them here. Family Day was devastating, and my Advisor was the ultilmate "mean girl".

    It was in 2009 I completed the program at Palmetto. By the grace of God I stayed despite the horrible treatment by administration, physicians, and clinical staff. One example is when my cabin was called to the center of the pavilion. I am hard of hearing and the size of the room made it even harder. When I would ask one of the counselors to repeat what they said to me, they lead the entire room in laughing at me. I should have been shown respect for my disability. This had nothing to do with my addiction.There was absolutely no good that came from the humiliation. The clinical and medical staff are stupid. One of my discharge plan was to return to Palmetto, sit in our counselors small group, and see t the other physician, see how much he impressed me, can not remember his name. He was extremely rude to me and wanted to know why was he seeing me. By that time I was finished with treatment and said to him,why don,t you read my discharge plan. Trust me, I would prefer not to see your face. Forty dollars a week times six in a cabin equals $ 240.00. This was to pay for everything, including toilet paper, etc. It is almost impossible to make it on this budget. We never had fruits or vegetables. The brown water was disgusting. How could you cook,drink or bathe in it without feeling dirty or enjoy your coffee or cooked food. I am still sober not thanks to Palmetto, but thanks to the Lord who gave me the strength to make through the Palmetto HelI.I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS TREATMENT CENTER AT ALL! There is much more I could say , but I know anyone reading this gets it.
