Treatment and Staff
Before a program begins, all clients go through an intake and assessment to help determine their needs. Those in detox are monitored around the clock by nurses and doctors with Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) available as necessary to treat withdrawal symptoms. The acute detox lasts for a minimum of three days but usually lasts for less than two weeks. A similar option is the 12-step medical detox, a program which integrates the above with an outpatient or IOP track with 12-step participation and evidence-based care. These programs also tend to last longer. Finally, psychiatric stays for mental health issues are also available with flexible lengths of stay.
In all the above, treatment includes individual, group and family therapy with evidence-based treatment practices which often include CBT, DBT and Motivational Interviewing (MI). As mentioned, 12-step participation is strongly encouraged whenever necessary and dual diagnosis support with medication management is available as well. While the acute detox plan is light on group therapy, other tracks include groups covering self-esteem, coping skills, trigger identification, relapse prevention, anger management, healthy relationships, problem solving and communication skills.
