Bluff Plantation

963 Bennock Mill Rd, Augusta, Georgia, 30906
Our clinical team will develop an individualized treatment plan to address your unique challenges.

Our program includes mindfulness meditation, spiritual care, exercise, and nutrition counseling. During your stay, we’ll help you discover the tools needed for better self-awareness and for sustaining long-term sobriety and wellness.

  • Partnership with Medical College of Georgia
  • Individualized treatment plans based on one's unique needs
  • Five-star residential setting on 178 wooded and secluded acres.

Specialization

  • Co-Occurring Disorders

    People with drug and alcohol addiction often have co-occurring disorders – mental illnesses such as depression, bipolar disorders, anxiety disorders or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Drinking and drug use may be an attempt to relieve the symptoms of mental health disorders. Bluff Plantation has psychiatrists on staff who assess, diagnose and treat dual disorders. Effectively treating mental health conditions improves well-being and brings the individual a greater sense of peace – necessary for sustained sobriety.
  • Trauma & Associative Awareness Therapy (AAT)

    Associative Awareness Therapy (AAT) uses the brain’s innate ability to adapt to change in a healing way, essentially “retraining” the brain to respond differently to familiar memories of trauma or pain.

This treatment center is nothing short than Life Changing. They go far beyond just treating your addiction. The staff really cares and helps you work through issues that have gone untreated for most of your life. I left there a new person and can not thank them enough.

This place is NOTHING as it claims to be. They lock you out of your own shared room ALL DAY. You are stuck in a large living room area ALL DAY. There is a communal tv and it’s god awful to fight over what to watch before curfew at 9:45pm. The place is filthy...carpets have obviously never been cleaned...same for the rooms. The food is mediocre at best. It’s a waste of time and $$ and they nickel and dime you into staying as long as possible. If you’re lucky you can a have 15 min phone call twice a week that you must sign up for (but only after a week or two of having absolutely no contact w family or friends before being able to do so). People run away at all hours. It’s poorly managed and run by addicts who constantly tell you about their horrible bouts w addiction (blah blah blah). Please do not go there. The only good part is the horses and the wonderful man who runs that program. If you want to exercise....GOOD LUCK! Torture!

I have previously been to 11 different rehabs before going to bluff plantation and this place was the first that helped me get out of myself and be able to help others. When I first got there and was able to see that I was going to be able to focus on myself and try to get better. The staff treated me great. My therapist really helped get down to the issues that were preventing me from getting better. I cannot thank them enough for helping me how they did. I was able to complete bluff and then go to the atlanta location. This place saved my life!

I attended this life changing facility in late 2019 to treat addiction for alcoholism and drug addiction. I learned so much about my disease and the amazing staff took such good care of me. I just cannot tell you how this experience changed my life. I highly recommend this state of the art facility and personalized care from each staff member. I will never forget them.
