Palmetto Addiction Recovery Center
Rayville, LA. 71269
Treatment centers often use a rigid approach to treatment that requires the patient to 'plug in' to a fixed treatment program without careful evaluation. This approach to treatment often results in instances of misdiagnosis and mistreatment of the patient. A primary goal at Palmetto is to ensure that this does not occur. We believe that the key to successful treatment is accurate evaluation, which assesses all aspect of the patient's symptoms and living situation. We provide a careful medical examination to identify any medical problems resulting from substance abuse, and to properly manage any concurrent medical conditions. This is followed by a thorough psychological and substance abuse evaluation to identify the problem that must be addressed in the treatment of the patient and the family. Finally, if indicated, psychological testing and psychiatric evaluation are used to ensure that all psychiatric conditions are discovered and properly treated. This information is used to formulate an individual treatment plan.
