Greenleaf Behavioral Health Hospital in Valdosta, Georgia offers an acute inpatient program for adults that is designed to meet the individual needs of each client through a detailed treatment plan and programming options that are led by a team of highly trained psychiatrists and mental health professionals. Through our acute inpatient program, we strive to provide exceptional treatment in a safe environment, sending clients from our doors onto the pathway of recovery. Our adult inpatient program offers includes a mental health unit, a substance abuse unit, and a secured unit for diagnostic evaluation and treatment (DET).
Our adult inpatient psychiatric program focuses upon establishing healthy coping skills to teach our clients ways to effectively handle the stresses that contributed to their need for hospitalization. Greenleaf employs licensed clinical staff who provide group-oriented therapy to help clients learn how to process their emotions, develop coping mechanisms, and challenge negative thought patterns. We also encourage our adult psychiatric clients to engage in individual and family counseling to best help them begin to heal.
The adult substance abuse track helps clients who are facing chemical dependency concerns. Within this treatment track, clients will be challenged to face the reality of their drug or alcohol addictions, setting the stage for lasting sobriety. We work hard to help our clients identify the underlying causes that may have led to the development of their addictions, and help them learn the skills needed to successfully lead a life of sobriety. Our adult substance abuse treatment includes individual- and group-oriented work, education on identifying triggers in order to prevent relapse, and family therapy to help mend any bonds that may have been broken as a result of addiction. Additionally, at Greenleaf, we hold both Alcoholic Anonymous (A.A.) and Narcotics Anonymous (N.A.) groups that our clients are encouraged to participate in.
Finally, our diagnostic evaluation and treatment unit (DET) may be utilized for adult clients who have been admitted to Greenleaf Behavioral Health Hospital on an involuntary basis.
