Accommodations and Food
Up to 20 men and women are housed in the inpatient facility adjacent to the hospital. Clients are separated by gender and share a room and a bathroom. The rooms are typical hospital-style, with single beds, small dressers and a cabinet for personal items. There are group meeting rooms and a common area with a TV and games.
Meals are served cafeteria style in a dining room. There are two entrée options for lunch and dinner. The menu is approved by a registered dietitian, who is available to work with anyone who may have dietary restrictions.
Treatment and Staff
An initial assessment with a doctor determines whether an inpatient or outpatient treatment program is recommended for the client and an individualized treatment plan is created. Programs generally last between 21 and 28 days, during which time clients are assessed by psychiatrists and are offered dual-diagnosis and psychiatric support, if needed.
Medically supervised detox is also available, as is Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT). Most people struggling with an addiction to opioids are prescribed methadone. An alternative option is Suboxone maintenance. Each client works with a physician to determine which option is right for them, based on drug history and recovery goals.
Group therapy and individual therapy are required daily, with participation in 12-step programs encouraged. Doctor visits occur once or twice a week, as needed. A typical day consists of a session with a counselor, group therapy and a 12-step meeting. Free time is allocated after lunch and dinner. Schedules are strictly supervised and clients are not allowed to leave the facility except for approved appointments.
On completion of the inpatient program, clients can step down to the outpatient program at Spring Valley. The individual’s counselor recommends a treatment routine that includes individual therapy, psychiatric evaluations, educational lectures and group therapy. Groups are offered during both daytime and nighttime hours, seven days a week, and are led by a counselor. Sessions that focus on harm reduction, early intervention and personal responsibility are offered, with some catering specifically to older, adolescent or Spanish-speaking individuals. Continued support during outpatient care is offered and may involve family sessions, educational assistance and lifestyle management.
The staff at Nyack Hospital includes physicians, nurses, therapists, counselors and social workers. Clients each have a personal team assigned to them and four or more nurses and counselors are available at all times.
Nyack Hospital offers significant support staff and treatment plans specific to the individual, in a structured environment. By encouraging 12-step participation as well as group and individual therapy, they target chemical dependency from multiple angles, giving the client the best chance for recovery at an affordable price.
