Substance Abuse

At Holly Hill we recognize alcohol and drug dependencies as a treatable medical illness. Our treatment program for chemical dependency utilizes traditional group therapy combined with a strong 12-step education component to help our patients begin their road to recovery. We also provide medically managed detox for certain substances. In addition to daily therapy groups, patients will also attend regular NA/AA meetings. As a dual diagnosis program, patients also receive treatment for any underlying psychological disorders that may be at the core of the patient’s addiction.  The inpatient program is a short term program and when appropriate, patients may step down into a traditional 28-day program or to the Holly Hill Hospital Partial Hospitalization Program for chemical dependency.

As with our other programs, we encourage participation in treatment and discharge planning by the patient’s family or support system.  The substance abuse recovery program also participates in our Treatment Trails Programming.

Holly Hill also offers an outpatient chemical dependency PHP that treats patients who are safe to return home at night. The program utilizes The Matrix Model, an evidence-based treatment modality recognized by Hazelden and SAMHSA. The Matrix Model integrates Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Contingency Management, Motivational Interviewing, Twelve-Step facilitation, family involvement and other elements, to give patients the skills and understanding they need to overcome addiction.
