Palmetto Addiction Recovery Center

Palmetto Addiction Recovery Center is located in Rayville, LA and provides high quality, personalized treatment to individuals suffering from alcohol, drug, sex, or gambling addictions. We believe that addiction can be managed though emotive therapy, cog

Palmetto Addiction Recovery Center has been helping people recover from addiction for more than 16 years. Our team of caring professionals share over 250 years of experience in breaking the cycle of this devastating, chronic disease. We believe recovery must occur in three areas: physical, emotional and spiritual. Our program is designed to address all three of these key areas from day one. Our facilities and staff provide an environment that encourages a return to basic living skills, development of non-addictive coping skills, recognition of character defects, development of a non self-centered way of living, and a spiritual approach to life.

Each morning, our multi-disciplinary team meets to review each patient’s progress ensuring our approach and treatment is continuously updated. Goal oriented and patient specific methods provide the basis for patient care and prevention of relapse.

Palmetto is located on a beautiful 70-acre rural setting surrounded by Lake Lafouche. This setting is private and tranquil to promote a safe and healing environment for treatment. Men and women residents live in separate, self-contained 8-bed cabins. We offer a state of the art 3,000 square foot fitness center equipped with a full circuit of nautilus machines, a large free weight area, and a wide variety of aerobic equipment. In addition, we have a 5,000 square foot pavilion with state of the art audio visual equipment for family therapy, lectures and our annual conference. We also have tennis and volleyball courts.
The bottom line is we genuinely care about our patients, our staff is second to none, our fees are less than comparable programs, and we have created an excellent environment to promote recovery.

The ‘Gateway Drug’ Is Alcohol, Not Marijuana Researchers at the University of Florida have found that the theory of a “gateway drug” is not associated with marijuana – results from the Guttman scale indicated that alcohol represented the gateway drug, leading to the use of tobacco, marijuana, and other illicit substances. Furthermore, students...

Addiction now defined as brain disorder, not behavior issue

There is some amazing insight in the realm of addiction medicine. Addiction is a chronic brain disorder and not simply a behavior problem involving alcohol, drugs, gambling or sex, experts contend in a new definition of addiction, one that is not solely related to problematic substance abuse.

The opioid epidemic may be even deadlier than we think

This is scary! The current drug crisis already kills more people than guns or cars. But a new study suggests it’s even worse than the current numbers say.

Addiction and Relationships - Palmetto Addiction Recovery Center

Addiction heavily influences relationships. Being aware of the signs of addiction and the possible emotional repercussions is important for not only the addict but their loved ones as well. Being addicted to drugs and/or alcohol and being in a loving relationship are like putting a match to dynamite.

The Fix

I thought that people with drug or alcohol problems could control them if they tried hard enough.

The Fix

There is no question that the 12 steps have transformed my life, but there is a common misconception that they are all you need.

The Fix

My father bailed me out of any situation without question. It was clear I had no idea how to manage my life. I washed up in AA ten months later. I was 24.
