Accreditation – Magnolia Recovery Center Hilton Head Island, SC

Magnolia Recovery is accredited by the Joint Commission and is a member of the National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers.

What Does it Mean to be Accredited?

There are accreditation organizations (accreditors) in the field of behavioral healthcare dedicated to ensuring a set of standards of care and treatment at behavioral healthcare facilities. Each accreditor has its own set of criteria to validate the quality of care and services that a facility or organization provides and some are more rigorous than others.

When a facility is evaluated by one of these accreditors and passes, that means their facility and program is meeting the standards of care set by this independent organization. Facilities that are accredited are more trustworthy because of this outside, official validation. You should look for the official seals of accreditation for any facility you choose, and if you aren’t sure, call and ask about their accreditations.

The Joint Commission

Magnolia Recovery is accredited by the Joint Commission. The Joint Commission is considered “The Gold Standard” in accreditation for behavioral health facilities and organizations, respected in behavioral health and medical communities. To be accredited by the Joint Commission, our facility had to meet comprehensive standards of performance in providing a trauma-informed and recovery-oriented approach to care, as well as medication-assisted treatment.

National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers

Magnolia Recovery as an organization is a member of the National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers, a nonprofit professional society focused on offering clinical and operational resources and law and policy advocacy for addiction treatment providers. Magnolia Recovery joins 600 other treatment providers and supporters striving to raise the standards of safety for addiction treatment and advocating for the field of addiction medicine.

Inpatient Treatment Planning for Your Stay – Contact Magnolia Recovery Center

Preparing for the changes that you are making in your life so you can focus on your recovery in our inpatient treatment program.

Before You Go to Magnolia Recovery

  • In some cases, federal law recognizes addiction as a disability under the Americans with Disabilities Act, and the Family and Medical Leave Act may protect your job and insurance if you’re absent from work to receive addiction treatment. Call our care advocates to learn more about this legislation and find out if it applies to your employment situation.

    Tell your employer that you’ll need to take medical leave and how long you will be out of work, but remember that you aren’t required to disclose the reason why. You have a right to privacy regarding medical issues, and employers are required by law to keep your situation confidential.

  • Talk to your trusted loved ones about their availability to care for your child or children. Your kids will likely want familiar, comforting faces around while you’re in treatment. If your child has any programs, events or appointments in the upcoming month, be sure to arrange plans for those obligations as well.

    If you have pets, you may ask friends and/or loved ones to see if they can care for them temporarily while you are receiving treatment. If not, there are many pet boarding options in every state.

    The person or people caring for your dependents should have contact information for our facility so they can stay in touch. And remember: when you help yourself recover, you’re helping your dependents, too!

  • If you’re anticipating bills to be due while you’re gone, make those payments before your first day at our facility. You can also opt into automatic billing for your rent/mortgage payment, utilities, cell phone, or other monthly bills so you don’t have to worry about late payments during treatment.

    You may also consider asking a trustworthy loved one to pay bills for you if you’d rather not have money automatically taken from your accounts. Give this person your online banking information or any other account details they may need to make payments if you decide to go this route.

What to Pack for Your Stay

We recommend patients bring about a week’s worth of comfortable clothing. Magnolia Recovery has a laundry facility with everything you’ll need to do your wash. Though Hilton Head Island typically has mild weather year-round, some light outerwear will be needed during the winter.

Clothing Items

  • Comfortable shirts, pants and/or shorts, depending on the season
  • Sneakers and flip flops
  • Outerwear for colder months
  • Gym clothing for exercise and outdoor activities

Recovery Testimonials & Success Stories – Magnolia Recovery Center

I came to [Magnolia Recovery] on December 3rd of 2016 a broken mess. I’d relapsed after 28 years of sobriety. Making the decision to go was an easy thing to do, doing the work necessary for me to be whole again—not so much. The entire staff was wonderful. I felt supported every step of the way in my journey back. I now have my retirement home in Charleston, SC and am well on my way back to me!
