Gadsden, AL, Residents Can Find Alcohol and Chemical Addiction Treatment at Flemming-House - For some people in Gadsden, Alabama, simply the idea of entering a "facility" or "treatment center" for alcohol and chemical addiction treatment may have negative connotations. However, the idea of receiving treatment at a place called Flemming-House may not seem so scary or even appear to be so "stigma-ridden" (something that is usually less grounded in fact than it may appear.) They may be more amenable to using the facility located at 607 Broad Street, Ste. A, in Gadsden, AL.
The location of Flemming-House in Gadsden makes it possible for people in that city as well as Anniston and other surrounding cities to take advantage of the treatment methods offered there. These can include individual and group therapy sessions, offered on an inpatient or outpatient basis.
Some Gadsden residents do not need inpatient treatment (in which a person remains at Flemming-House without leaving the house or grounds for a specific number of days, weeks, or even months.) In this instance, the outpatient treatment program allows them to continue working, attending school, or otherwise going about their normal activities even while receiving alcohol and chemical addiction treatment.
Flemming-House staff members are aware that alcohol and chemical dependency affects family members and loved ones as well as the person who has the dependency problem. For this reason, counseling sessions may sometimes include family members, or they may attend separate sessions. In addition, information on support groups in and around Gadsden, AL, can be obtained, so they can take advantage of these programs.
This can be especially important if there are children who are affected by alcohol and chemical dependency of a parent or relative. Support groups and counseling programs that address the issues that are indicative of children, both younger, older, and those in the adolescent years, can be as beneficial as the services offered to the patient seeking help.
Here again, the idea of receiving these sessions at Flemming-House, rather than a "clinic" or "facility" may have a positive psychological effect. This in turn can make the counseling sessions more successful, for everyone involved.
By visiting or writing to 607 Broad Street, Ste. A, in Gadsden, Alabama, residents in this and other cities can receive information on the services available at Flemming-House. These can include treatment programs and options available to an addicted person, as well as family members and others who have been affected by a person's alcohol and chemical addiction.
Information can also be obtained by calling 256-399-0220. If this method of communication is used, and the caller likes what is heard, appointment times or arrangements for a person with alcohol and chemical dependency entering Flemming-House can be made at that time.
