Rehabs 360 Guide


Based in Southaven, Miss., Addiction Campuses of Mississippi provides a full continuum of treatment for services for adults struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring mental health disorders. The center’s programs include medical detox, residential treatment, outpatient treatment (OP), intensive outpatient treatment (IOP), and medication management for individuals dealing with opioid addiction (Suboxone). Intervention services and ongoing aftercare are also available for clients and their families.


Upon admission, clients undergo a detailed assessment to determine whether or not medical detox is necessary. Those who require treatment for withdrawal symptoms begin their stay with detox before transitioning to residential or outpatient treatment, which is offered at both standard and intensive outpatient levels. Additionally, IOP Suboxone treatment, which incorporates counseling, addiction education, 12-step work, and family programming along with regular dosing, is available. Aftercare is provided through counseling, relapse prevention programming, educational workshops, and vocational rehabilitation.

According to the facility’s website, treatment is tailored to each client’s goals, but programming emphasizes the use dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) in both individual and group counseling. Additionally, clients participate in life skills education, 12-step meetings, and family programs. For those needing help with transitional planning for housing and continued support, assistance is available.


According to the center’s website, its team of licensed professionals and medical staff includes physicians specializing in psychiatry, nurses, counselors, and clinical supervisory personnel.


According to the facility’s website, residential clients stay at the Lighthouse Recovery sober living homes located a few miles from campus. The facility provides separate residences for men and women and can accommodate up to 40 clients at a time. Living quarters are simple but homelike; clients sleep in twin beds in shared bedrooms and have access to a full kitchen and furnished living room. Meals are provided.


The two alumni polled by Rehabs.com shared vastly differing opinions of the treatment they received at Addiction Campuses of Mississippi. T.P. provided five out of five stars for the center’s treatment effectiveness and commented on the caring staff and “very helpful” admissions department; however, L.W. provided the program’s treatment effectiveness with just one star, characterizing their experience as “Horrible.” “Treatment and accommodations are awful,” they wrote.

Reviews submitted to Google were more conclusive; each of the four reviewers submitted five out of five stars.[1] Two reviewers commented on the “great experience,” and Justin specifically highlighted the treatment team. “The staff truly cares about your recovery. I would recommend this treatment center to anyone and everyone,” he wrote.


The three loved ones surveyed by Rehabs.com were unanimous in their negative opinions of the facility and its treatment. The two respondents who were polled regarding the program’s treatment effectiveness provided just one star, and D.H., the third respondent, characterized the facility as “a joke.” While D.H. admitted that they encountered “a few good counselors,” Mike and S.F.T.W. complained about communication problems with the staff that impacted the care their loved ones received. “They will tell you and promise you everything before you commit your loved one. Then suddenly they treat you as if you don’t exist,” Mike wrote. S.F.T.W. noted that employees failed to return calls and “do not pay attention to the patients nor do they hold themselves accountable for when things happen in the facility with patients.”

Lori, the single reviewer on Yellowpages.com, also provided the facility with a rating of one out of five stars.[2] She noted inappropriate housing facilities, “questionable” treatment, and a lack of communication with the staff. “We decided to pull our son immediately, but were blocked for over a day by this organization, who conveniently ‘lost’ him. No one knew where he was for an entire day, including … a director.”


According to its website, the center accepts credit cards and works with a number of private insurance companies, including Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and Cigna Behavioral Health. Some financial assistance is available, and clients may secure loans through Clark Behavioral Health Financing.
