Rehabs 360 Guide


Located in the community of Waycross in southeastern Ga., Treatment Center of Waycross offers an inpatient residential treatment program for adults who are struggling with chemical dependency and co-occurring disorders. If necessary, the facility utilizes medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for on-site detoxification services. Within the state, Treatment Center of Waycross is one of 15 substance abuse treatment facilities that provides residential, non-hospital detoxification. The facility is also one of 26 facilities that offers long-term residential, non-hospital care of 30+ days.


At Treatment Center of Waycross, clients undergo an initial substance abuse history and psychiatric evaluation to help clinicians identify which services and tools to include in a personalized treatment program. According to the facility’s website, the team develops an "individualized plan based on the abilities, needs, and personal philosophies" of each client. Although the exact course of treatment varies for clients, the overall process at the rehab blends evidence-based treatment approaches with holistic and experiential methods.

Depending on their needs, clients contending with opioid dependency may receive MAT, which may utilize Suboxone, an evidence-based medication that has proved effective in alleviating the discomfort of withdrawal and minimizing cravings. In Georgia, the center is among 17.1 percent of substance abuse treatment facilities that prescribe Suboxone. During residential treatment, clients also may attend group and individual counseling sessions.

The facility specializes in treating individuals with co-occurring mental health conditions. Such dually-diagnosed clients may attend targeted group counseling sessions and receive ongoing medication management. Within the state, Treatment Center of Waycross is among 49.3 percent of substance abuse treatment facilities with specially tailored programs for clients with co-occurring disorders.

In addition to counseling sessions, clients may attend educational classes on a range of topics that promote long-term recovery, such as relapse prevention techniques, anger and stress management, coping skills, emotional regulation, and developing community-based support networks. Depending on the preference of the client, 12-Step or other self-help participation may be incorporated into overall programming. The facility also integrates holistic and experiential treatments, including equine therapy, exercise activities, and guided yoga sessions.

According to the facility's website, the length of the residential program ranges from 30 to 90 days, depending on the needs of the individual. Once the client completes the program, clinicians help form a comprehensive discharge plan for clients, which may include referrals to outpatient programs, supportive housing, and community-based resources that provide additional support.
