Through the years, Life Center has worked to respond to the needs of the patients in the region. As drugs of choice have changed, we have worked to update our programs and practices to offer the best opportunity for successful treatment and recovery.

The first significant change came when the facility sought a license to include dual diagnosis services as part of our addiction treatment program. For more than 20 years our psychiatrist and medical director have worked together with our treatment team to ensure we address patients holistically.

One of the most significant recent changes occurred with the introduction of new and stronger pain medications and the subsequent increase in opiate addiction. Now, almost half of our patients are receiving treatment for opiate addiction.

Life Center of Galax is located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Southwest Virginia. We were the first residential treatment program both licensed and accredited to exclusively treat adults addicted to alcohol or drugs.

At Life Center of Galax, we focus on one thing-your recovery. You and your family have suffered enough from the devastating disease of addiction.

Staff in Life Center
on March 1, 2021

Mostly dedicated staff who believe in and want to help those struggling with addiction. However inadequate staffing and huge caseloads make it nearly impossible to achieve quality patient care on a daily basis.

The idea of the company is great but the execution is horrible. The management is a mess and there is no communication. You go in thinking it’s a great place and leave disillusioned realizing that they will do anything when it comes to money.

Certain departments are great at team work, some need improvement. Leadership team does the best with what they have. Could work on better communication amongst staff. Overall a great place and great people to work with.

Don’t work there! No teamwork! They need more staff! They put to much on you and expect it all to be done. There is no structure in the company at all!

This facility is not effective in treating substance users. It is a revolving door often with 5+ readmit patients. The pay and hours are extremely unbalanced and most staff are way underpaid. Find another place if you are looking for meaningful work.
