For someone with an addiction, withdrawal can be medically dangerous and difficult. Detoxification services are the medical management of the physical withdrawal process from alcohol and/or other drugs in a residential or outpatient program. It is indicated when the individual experiences physiological dysfunction during withdrawal but life or significant bodily functions are not threatened.
The first step is for an assessment to be completed by our Intake Coordinator to determine the severity of the individual's withdrawal symptoms and level of supports needed during the detoxification process. This assessment will be reviewed with medical personnel to determine whether the individual will be admitted to a residential or outpatient setting based upon the amount of nursing and physician supervision necessary during the withdrawal process.
Recovery Place's treatment philosophy is to develop a Plan of Care which provides services in the least restrictive, most empowering setting. This is an essential consideration for each individual's plan of care. A person who needs detoxification can be admitted to our residential treatment program, with round-the-clock medical supervision or may only require partial hospitalization or day treatment. This empowers individuals by fostering independence. The average length of stay for residential detoxification is five to fourteen days. In addition to medical monitoring, clients will receive group counseling, psycho-education, individual counseling, and case management services.
