Just outside of downtown Detroit, Quality Behavioral Health offers medical detox, residential treatment and outpatient programs for chemically dependent adults who often suffer from co-occurring disorders like depression, anxiety, bipolar, and panic disorder. Rehabilitation here is built around individual attention and a variable length of stay.
Accommodations and Food
The facility doesn’t draw much attention to itself as a nondescript red building on the corner of East Grand Boulevard. Clients range in age from 18 to 70—no special considerations are made based on age, though the program is gender segregated. Men and women at Quality Behavioral Health sleep in separate parts of the facility in dorm-style bedrooms. Two to three clients may share a room and a bathroom. The bedrooms are relatively small, so clients have community rooms with televisions where they can relax.
Dining rooms are also segregated at Quality Behavioral Health. Meals are pre-prepared, but on intake, clients are welcome to communicate any special dietary needs. Clients can also arrange to have family members drop off candy and cigarettes with the staff without having to wait for a formal visit.
Treatment and Staff
Medical detox for alcohol, cocaine, heroin, and opiates is available at Quality Behavioral Health. All clients in detox are guaranteed a bed in residential treatment if they want one, but many people come to Quality Behavioral Health for detox and choose another residential program. A doctor oversees each client’s detox and prescribes medication as necessary. The length of detox varies, but most clients remain for between four and seven days. Clients commit to residential treatment for 30 days, but may extend their stay at any point to 60 or 90 days.
Quality Behavioral Health’s program relies on 12-step philosophy as well as evidence-based systems like CBT and Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET) to empower clients. Each client has a primary counselor with whom they do one-one-one therapy every week. Primary counselors help design clients’ individualized treatment plans and make decisions in conjunction with clients about if and when to arrange for family therapy. After two weeks, once clients are settled in, families and friends are allowed to visit.
Clients meet for group therapy every day to discuss issues related to addiction and to living sober. Group sizes vary, but may be as large as 20 men or women at a time. Clients learn mindfulness and stress management techniques as well as engaging in recreational therapy. To supplement 12-step meetings and step work, Quality Behavioral Health has a spiritual counselor on staff to lead groups and help enhance spiritual understanding. Dual diagnosis support is an important part of treatment here and as such there is also a psychiatrist on staff and an onsite pharmacy for immediate medication management.
There are two levels of outpatient programming available; traditional services focus on individual and family therapy by appointment and ongoing psychiatric care—the key issues being relapse prevention and emotional health; the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), is daytime treatment service for those who require a structured schedule similar in scope to residential treatment, without the overnight stay.
Quality Behavioral Health offers a straightforward service: to get their clients sober and give them the tools to live that way.
