Substance use disorders are medical diagnoses that are often accompanied by social or legal challenges.
We look at all of the ways that your life has been affected by substance use so you can succeed long-term. The caring, professional staff at Keystone meet all patients where they are. Without judgment, our clinicians guide each individual, based on his or her unique set of circumstances, to an appropriate program in Keystone’s broad continuum of care.
Assessment & Screening Services
To create an individualized plan of care, it is vital to fully understand the situation and needs of the person.
Keystone’s team of assessing counselors are available to perform a comprehensive assessment that helps us understand which education or treatment program will best help given your unique set of circumstances.
An assessment for the Alcohol & Drug Safety Action Program (ADSAP) is required by South Carolina law for those charged with or mandated to complete services due to driving under the Influence or other related charges. Patients should bring a current 10-year driving record on the day of their ADSAP assessment.
Outpatient Medical Assessment
Medical professionals on the Keystone team include registered nurses, a nurse practitioner, a psychiatrist, and a physician-addictionologist. These dedicated professionals assist patients with Medication Assisted Treatment, manage co-occurring substance use and mental health diagnosis, and work through medical issues that emerge while patients are in Keystone outpatient programs of all intensities.
Alcohol and Other Drug Assessment
During your bio-psycho-social assessment, a certified/licensed clinician will interview you regarding your history of substance use, your medical history, and many other factors that bring you here today. Following your assessment, our full clinical team will collaboratively determine a recommended program placement that best fits your strengths, needs, abilities, and preferences.
Were you removed from employment at a safety-sensitive workplace for substance use? We offer evaluations and intensive case management by a Substance Abuse Professional.
If you are required by court, employer or other referral to complete an alcohol or other drug assessment, we offer a legal evaluation service. With your consent, the results of this assessment will be directly forwarded to the referral source and will have our diagnosis and recommendations.
Keystone offers drug screening services for persons that are Keystone patients. Keystone also provides drug screening for contracted employers and schools in our community.
In Keystone’s specialized outpatient services, patients learn about the physiology of using substances and about the risks that are ahead should their substance use continue.
Patients connect with peers who are dealing with similar issues, learn how to better communicate with family members and friends, and get the support they need.
Crossroads program is designed for those who may not have a substance use disorder, but are experimenting with drugs or alcohol and realize that they might be headed down an unhealthy path. The program consists of three individual counseling sessions and three group sessions focused on changing behaviors that are potentially harmful to your health and well-being.
Solutions and Transitions are programs for persons with a mild or moderate substance use issue. The Solutions program is a once-a-week program, and the Transitions program is a twice-a-week program. Both programs are designed to help you find hope and healing through counseling.
Peer Support Services
Making connections while participating in treatment for substance use disorders can be one of the most powerful ways to find hope and healing. We offer Peer Support Services so patients who are currently in treatment can receive support and motivation from peers who are in sustained recovery. This highly successful program helps patients achieve vital life linkages such as employment, housing and healthcare.
Recovery Management is for persons who have completed an intensive treatment program. This level of care allows patients to create support systems so they can continue successful management of a substance use disorder and prevent reoccurrence of substance use symptoms. In Recovery Management, patients will receive support from others who are also in early stages of recovery. Patients are welcome to continue in Recovery Management for an unlimited timeframe.
Gambling can result in similar challenges as substance use disorders. At Keystone, we provide specialized services to help with gambling disorders.
With substance use disorders, emergency situations are not uncommon. Keystone offers services to help patients manage crisis events and find connections to ongoing care.
If you or someone you know needs medical care for drug or alcohol use, call our main office at (803) 324-1800 for a confidential screening. We will help you determine the best course of action and connect you with others in the community who can help you recover.
