I have a family member suffering from addiction that needs help. Can I make them come to your facility?

Our Answer

We offer a voluntary program, meaning patients come to our facility of their own free will seeking treatment. You can encourage a loved one to seek treatment, but not by force or threat. For example, you can provide them with our information and resources so that when they are ready, they have the information they need to reach out for help. Also, they can speak to a member of our team by calling (423) 569-7866.

If I leave mid-treatment, can I come back?

Our Answer

Every patient’s treatment can vary. While we may wish that everyone would be successful, we fully understand that for many patients their treatment journey may be disjointed. 

With that in mind, if you were to leave treatment against medical advice, and decided to seek treatment again, we would be happy to evaluate you and if treatment would be appropriate, we would of course offer your that option, as long as your meet admission criteria at that time.

What services do you offer?

Our Answer

Can I stay longer if I feel like I need to?

Our Answer

All treatment at Myrtle Recovery Centers, Inc. is driven by the healthcare providers at our Center. They determine and document the “medical necessity” of the treatment, which is required by insurance companies and payers. If you wish to seek additional treatment beyond that, we would need to explore alternative options for self-pay or charity gifts.

What happens next? Is there support after discharge?

Our Answer

We offer follow-up support for all our patients. We will also have support for patients at our OBOT (Office Based Opioid Treatment) Clinic. This treatment will include Individual and Group therapy, family therapy sessions, medication assisted treatment, case management services and long term follow up planning.
