Established more than 46 years ago, Life Center of Galax, part of Acadia Healthcare network, is located in Galax, a small town situated in the lap of the Blue Ridge Mountains in southwest Virginia. Focusing on adults, the center offers several treatment programs for substance abuse as well as co-occurring disorders. The programs include medical detox, residential programs, and day treatment programs.
Initially modeled on 12 step philosophy, Life Center’s programs have witnessed changes. Even though 12 steps are an integral component of the treatment protocol, it also includes comprehensive treatment for drugs and alcohol and dual diagnosis support.
Life Center of Galax is located in a mountainous and secluded town of Galax. The grounds are attractive, and a seasonal stream runs through it. The center has a gazebo and a large outdoor porch. The facility resembles a schoolhouse. Clients are gender-segregated and share their dorm-style rooms with two or three other roommates.
Residents can smoke in designated outside areas. Residents also enjoy weekend outings like visits to the recreation center, bowling and hikes to the mountains.
Clients are served three nutritious meals every day in the dining hall. The residents are served breakfast at 7:00 am. Lunch is provided at noon. Dinner is served at 5:00 pm.
All residents who undergo treatment at Life Center are introduced to 12-Steps philosophy. Those who seek medical detox are offered support with Vivitrol, Suboxone, and methadone. The primary treatment modality at the Life Center is group therapy. The center provides CBT, experiential therapies like role-play and psychodrama, reality therapy, gender-specific groups, and leisure groups.
Individual sessions are also held as part of the treatment program. Residents receive addiction education. The center holds family workshops every week. Few specialized services such as the DUI program, Christian Recovery Program, and program for opioid addicts are also offered. Life Center also provides a specific plan for active military personnel.
Day support program offered by Life Center comprises a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP). The program pattern is the same as in a residential program but allows clients to get back home after the sessions. The center also offers discharge planning to its graduates.
The treatment team at CARF-accredited Life Center of Galax comprises an American Society of Addiction Medicine certified medical director, board-certified psychiatrist, licensed professional counselors, a 24/7 nursing staff consisting of registered nurses and licensed practical nurses, and certified counselors.
Approximately $8,600-$10,200 (30 days). The center accepts insurance like Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, Medicaid, Tricare, and United Healthcare. It also works with American Healthcare Lending.
