you describe your program?
JFK ADATC offers
an Acute Care Unit for short term crisis stabilization or detoxification
services. Both involuntary and voluntary admissions are considered. In
addition to the Acute Care Unit JFK ADATC also offers two distinct inpatient
substance abuse treatment programs. The two programs are; the Acute Rehabilitation
Services Program (ARS) and the Acute Recovery Transitional Program (ART).
The Acute Rehabilitation
Services (ARS) program consists of a full day of classes/groups to help
the individual understand the addictive process, the impact of co-occurring
mental health issues, and provide education/tools to begin the recovery
process. Our acute rehabilitation treatment program generally lasts between
14 and 28 days, depending on the specific needs and progress of the individual.
At discharge, individuals are referred for continuing treatment through
their local mental health programs, self help groups, and other outpatient
The Acute Recovery
Transitional (ART) Program is located within the secure Acute Care Unit
and is designed to serve patients who have co-occurring substance abuse
symptoms and mental health symptoms. The patient with these unique limitations
will receive supportive services specifically designed to address both
conditions. The primary objective of this 14-day treatment program is
to provide patients with skills to manage thoughts and behaviors associated
with substance abuse as well as management of symptoms related to mental
illness. The ART patient will benefit from the enhanced, structured setting
and frequent interaction with the Treatment Team. .
do I (or a family member) obtain admittance to your rehabilitation program/facility?
admitted to JFK ADATC an individual must be evaluated and then referred
by the local mental health management entity (LME.) Please contact your
local management entity (i.e., Western Highlands; Mecklenburg; Smoky Mountain;
etc.) for an assessment. If the LME determines that an individual could
benefit from inpatient treatment for substance abuse or a co-occurring
mental illness complicated by substance use, the LME will make the arrangements
with JFK ADATC. Treatment is available to any resident of the 37 western
counties of North Carolina.
