About Bluff plantation

Bluff Plantation is one of the most comprehensive, scientifically driven residential drug and alcohol addiction treatment centers on the East Coast.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT

Many addiction treatment programs don’t have doctors and psychiatrists on staff seeing patients daily. Our experienced, onsite team includes physicians, psychiatrists, nurses, licensed clinicians and therapists led by Dr. William S. Jacobs, a nationally renowned addiction medicine expert who is triple board certified in anesthesiology, addiction medicine and pain medicine. Dr. Jacobs is intimately involved in all areas of treatment daily and on a continuous basis, which is vitally important to treating the chronic disease of addiction. Our unique affiliation with the Medical College of Georgia also provides quick access to additional medical specialists and the Augusta University Medical Center, enabling us to treat even the most complex cases. The exceptional quality of care at Bluff Plantation and integrated approach to addiction treatment have helped hundreds of patients restore their health and achieve long-term recovery.

Neuroscience-Driven Approach

Advances in neuroscience have shown that addiction is a complex brain disease requiring a multi-dimensional treatment approach. Many people suffering from addiction also have dual disorders such as depression, anxiety and trauma that must also be treated to allow for full healing.

Bluff Plantation’s medical model of care offers neuroscience-driven drug and alcohol rehabilitation that addresses the genetic, physiological and environmental factors that contribute to addiction.

Holistic Addiction Treatment

Addiction rehabilitation at Bluff Plantation is not a series of events or meetings, but rather a vibrant process of continued learning, character development, restoration of relationships and the attainment of skills to prevent relapse.

In addition to clinical treatments such as cognitive and dialectical behavior therapy, Bluff Plantation fully immerses patients in the recovery process through experiential therapies that involve all of the senses. Equine therapy, art therapy, gardening, yoga and movement therapy offer alternative methods of self-expression and communication.

Guided by skilled therapists and counselors, experiential therapies change perspectives, expose individuals to new and powerful experiences and offer opportunities to develop skills that are beneficial for health over a lifetime.
