For containment, structure and loving care Bluff is incredible! I’ve been there twice and both times I was impressed with interactions with daily staff. My therapists on both occasions were incredib...

I wasn't the patient. Small groups. Disorganized.

No follow up care fixed into place before my fianc� was released. They feed them well. That�s about it. They don�t make sure that exit day treatment is in place for the future. They don�t care...

The staff is very nice. As for the program...it leaves much to be desired. They love to talk about steps one through three and then expect you to make your amends, step 9, in front of another patient,...

Dr. Jacobs and the clinical staff are amazing!! It's rare to have daily interaction with the Medical Director, the doctors usually "stop by" a couple times a week at other programs. The property is ...

Areas of Focus
Co-Occurring Disorders

People with drug and alcohol addiction often have co-occurring 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.

Trauma & Associative Awareness Therapy (AAT)

Associative Awareness Therapy (AAT) uses the brain’s innate ability to adapt to change in a healing way, essentially “retraining” the brain to respond differently to familiar memories of trauma or pain.

Medical Detoxification

Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.

Relapse Prevention

Whether sobriety is brand new or has lasted for many years, the risk of relapse remains a threat to recovery. What separates those who relapse from those who don’t? Using evidence-based treatments and therapies, Bluff Plantation teaches strategies and provides the support that has been shown to help men and women in recovery stay healthy and sober.

Equine Therapy

A form of animal therapy, equine therapy involves visiting, working with and sometimes riding horses as a way to create a metaphoric relationship that leads to life-altering insights.

Aftercare Support

Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.

Nutrition and Physical Wellness

At Bluff Plantation, our goal is to make sure that all of our patients’ healthcare needs are addressed. This is crucial to maintaining long-term sobriety. When people feel healthy physically and mentally, they sleep better. They have the energy to exercise and to participate in activities that are good for the body, mind and soul. They can enjoy their time with family and friends. Each one adds another brick in a strong foundation for recovery.
