Comprehensive Opiate Rehab Program in Virginia

Life Center of Galax is prepared to help treat your opiate addiction.

Our addiction rehab center is designed to access and treat the individual with the most appropriate treatment modality. These modalities include inpatient medical detoxification and stabilization to abstinence; administration of medication (Methadone or Buprenorphine) for continuance in an outpatient maintenance program; or the utilization of Vivitrol (seven to ten days after detox) for sustained recovery. Also, for the men and women of Virginia who are currently participating in an outpatient medication assisted program (Methadone or Buprenorphine) but may require a more intensive program or detoxification from other drugs, our addiction rehab center allows the patient to transition into inpatient and return to their outpatient provider upon discharge.

We believe the most effective rehab addresses not only the medical needs of our patients, but also the emotional, physical, and spiritual aspects of addiction. This holistic approach provides patients with a solid foundation upon which to begin long-term recovery.

At our addiction recovery center in Virginia we understand that recovery is a lifelong experience and our program includes an introduction to Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA), as well as Celebrate Recovery, a Christian based recovery meeting.

Galax's specialty programs allowed me to receive an individualized treatment plan that helped me get back on track.
