Behavioral health center opens in Bluffton

61UPx.AuSt.9Stephanie Jamison thinks most people struggling with substance abuse, mental-health and behavioral problems want help.

They just don’t always know where to look, she says.

Jamison is trying to make things a little simpler.

The CEO has opened a center in Bluffton that offers a range of services under one roof. Jamison Consultants Behavioral Health Center, which opened at 167 Bluffton Road in April, specializes in the care of children, adolescents and families, including mentoring students in school and at home.

The company held a ribbon-cutting Tuesday. The center provides psychotherapy, substance-abuse treatment and behavior modification. It accepts most types of insurance and Medicaid, Jamison said.

The center also provides treatment to those in pre-trial intervention programs, which target behaviors and addictions that likely contributed to criminal actions, Jamison said. Many of the people referred by the courts can’t afford treatment programs, she said.

“There is a place here you can get help now,” she said. “Hopefully, it will cut down on crime, it will cut down on negative behaviors in the community, maybe it will cut down on homelessness.”

The Bluffton center is the second Jamison facility in the state. The first launched in 2010 in Holly Hill, where about 100 patients have completed rehabilitative programs, according to a news release.

Jamison expects the Bluffton center to serve about the same number of people, though she has prepared for different demographics.

Holly Hill is a rural town in Orangeburg County with less than 1,300 people, she noted.

To accommodate Beaufort County’s growing Hispanic community, Jamison hired several Spanish-speaking counselors and staff members.

The center also caters to children and adolescents whose behavioral problems hinder their education, Jamison said. A few families have already signed on as clients, and their children meet with staff in the center and at school, she said.Another company, Wright Directions Family Services, offers similar support to Beaufort County families.

About 50 students receive mental health counseling and therapy from the Ridgeland-based service provider, which also works with students in their homes to tackle the source of stress, according to the district’s student services officer, Gregory McCord.

Since mid-October, the district has referred families in need to Wright Directions, McCord said. While the district has not done the same for Jamison Consultants, McCord said, families that have chosen to work with the company have been pleased.

“They’ve been great to work with,” McCord said. “And I don’t know if you can ever have enough agencies working together, if you’re talking about putting kids and families in better environments and better situations.”

Jamison Consultants Behavioral Health Center Offers Medicaid Patients Counseling and Therapy For Both Mental Health and Substance Abuse Issues

Jamison Consultants, a South Carolina licensed provider for Medicaid-covered Rehabilitative Behavioral Health Services (RBHS) therapy, has opened a new facility in Bluffton, South Carolina. The center offers Medicaid-funded behavioral health services for children, adolescents and families, and is an important new option for local Medicaid patients to receive mental health and substance abuse services.

The new Jamison Consultants Behavioral Health Center, which opened on April 7th, is located at 167 Bluffton Road in Bluffton. At 2,400 square feet, the spacious center includes areas for playroom therapy and group therapy sessions as well as private areas for individual therapy and case management. The new facility is a second location for Jamison Consultants Behavioral Health Center, which first opened its Holly Hill, South Carolina center in 2010. Since its launch, Jamison Consultants Behavioral Health Center has helped more than 100 individuals through its rehabilitative behavioral health services and programs.

“Our new Bluffton location will allow us to provide local residents with a convenient new option in receiving a broad range of behavioral health services which can dramatically enhance their lives,” says Stephanie Jamison-Void, CEO and Executive Director of Jamison Consultants. “In particular, by offering Medicaid-funded behavioral health services for children, adolescents and adults throughout Bluffton and the surrounding areas, we are able to provide so many people with access to the mental health and substance abuse services that they may previously not have been able to receive and which can have a tremendous positive impact.”

Jamison Consultants Behavioral Health Center in Bluffton offers an experienced clinical staff with years of expertise in mental health/substance abuse counseling, and provides a full range of rehabilitative behavioral health services for children, adolescents and families. Specific services offered include individual psychotherapy, family counseling, group therapy, children’s therapy, couples counseling, day treatment and behavior modification. The Center specializes in a number of issues affecting families today, including ADHD, oppositional defiance disorder (ODD), bipolar disorder, depression, eating disorders and grief/loss, as well as help with self-esteem issues and stress management. Children and adolescents with a diagnosable mental health condition who have problems functioning successfully in school or at home and have Medicaid insurance may be eligible for these services.

The new Bluffton Jamison Consultants Behavioral Health Center also offers Drug and Alcohol and Substance Abuse Counseling for Medicaid patients, and is an important new option to help individuals suffering from addiction to alcohol and other substances to manage their addictions.. The Center’s substance abuse counseling program includes drug and alcohol assessments, follow-up assessments and group alcohol and drug substance abuse counseling, and is particularly valuable for individuals who have failed routine drug tests from their employer and are seeking an effective program to help overcome their addictions – and keep their jobs.

“By offering drug and alcohol abuse counseling to Medicaid patients we are able to help many people referred to us keep their jobs, which is so important in today’s economy,” notes Jamison. “Through EAP referrals, our center offers those individuals who have failed drug tests the substance abuse rehabilitative services they need in order to remain drug-free, providing the critical support, counseling and therapy they need to effectively manage their substance abuse issues and remain in their jobs.”

Jamison Consultants Behavioral Health Center’s new Bluffton office is open from Monday – Friday: 8:00AM – 5:00PM, Saturday 9am-2pm and Sunday by appointment. In addition to serving the needs of Medicaid patients, Jamison Consultants Behavioral Health Center also accepts many other forms of insurance.
