Lillian Barnwell is the Director of Providence Women’s Recovery Program which is affiliated with Providence Ministries, Inc. located in Dalton Georgia.

Lillian received her Bachelor’s Degree from Birmingham-Southern College. She received her Master’s Degree in counseling graduating with honors from the University of Birmingham at Alabama. Lillian is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and is currently working on becoming a Certified Addiction Counselor. Prior to becoming a mental health specialist, Lillian worked many years as a Human Resources Professional. Lillian was drawn to Providence Ministries due to their commitment to sharing the love of Christ as they work to help people recover from their addiction.

- 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.
- Individualized Treatment
Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
