Reviews at a Glance
- Upscale Retreat for Recovery
As a renovated boutique hotel, Hilton Head is an upscale treatment facility located on the beautiful island of Hilton Head in South Carolina within walking distance of beaches and parks. This facility is one of the finest in the region and offers patients a retreat from the chaos that often characterizes a period of addiction. The serenity and beauty of Hilton Head Island is ideal for healing body, mind, and spirit.
- Patients Get Involved in the Community
At Hilton Head patients will become involved in the community both inside and outside of the facility through recreation therapy, which includes weekends of sober fun activities like going to free concerts in the area or baking cookies for local convalescent homes. Getting patients involved in the community within the facility and outside of the facility offers them a chance to utilize the coping skills they are learning and to apply these to everyday life, setting them up for a successful transition to normal life.
- Military Trauma & PTSD Specialists
Hilton Head has staff specialize in dealing with PTSD and military-related addiction issues and co-occurring disorders. They also deal well with sexual trauma and are successful in addressing these underlying mental health issues especially in patients coming from military backgrounds.
- Co-Occurring Disorders & Process Addictions
The clinical staff at Hilton Head specialize in treating co-occurring mental health disorders like depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and others, as well as treating process addiction interactions like disordered eating and gambling addiction. Treating these co-occurring disorders will address underlying causes of addiction in order to set patients up for successful, long-term recovery.
- Executive/Professional-friendly Treatment
At Hilton Head we are able to work with patients who may need to continue to handle work obligations while receiving treatment by allowing them to write e-mails and take work-related calls as necessary. While it is crucial to focus on healing and to limit outside distractions during treatment, for some it is difficult to leave work even for a month, which is why we can work with patients to support their professional lives even during treatment.
