Farley Center Offers New Options for Those Struggling with Addiction in Virginia

July 29, 2013

There is a new addiction treatment option in Virginia for those who are in the early stages of addiction that is less disruptive to patients' normal lives. By treating drug and alcohol abuse in the early stages, there is greater hope for successful recovery.

Williamsburg, VA (PRWEB) July 29, 2013

The Farley Center at Williamsburg Place, recognized nationwide for their successful programs treating addiction, has launched a new intensive outpatient program (IOP) for those who struggle with moderate or early stages of substance abuse. The program consists of a combination of group therapy 4 times a week with family participation during one of those sessions. The IOP program also addresses co-occurring disorders, which means that in addition to the physical addiction, psychological root causes are also taken into consideration.

“We typically are more familiar with images of those hitting ‘rock bottom’ on television and in movies,” added Dr. Melissa Lee Warner, MD, Medical Director. “In fact there is a full spectrum of dependency from a clinical perspective. Just as in any other disease, there is greater hope for recovery if we are able to diagnose the symptoms early.”

The IOP Program is the latest expansion of the Williamsburg Place campus, which added a psychiatric hospital to the campus in 2012, and will be located at 1309 Jamestown Road in Williamsburg, VA. The new location is intended to provide treatment in the least restrictive setting possible and allows patients the opportunity to maintain employment and improve work performance, as well as to maintain their living situation.

“As The Farley Center continues to grow, we hope to serve a wider population by applying the core strengths of our traditional program to new areas of addiction treatment,” stated Don McCourtney, Executive Director. “For those who feel that their lives are becoming increasingly dependent on drugs and alcohol, it offers a treatment option at a pivotal time that is less interruptive to their normal daily lives.”
