overview

Substance use disorders can affect many aspects of a person’s life. With this in mind, our addiction medicine and recovery experts aim to treat the individual as a whole. By providing behavioral therapies, medication management (when appropriate), experiential therapies, family therapy, and aftercare support we can help participants gain skills to handle and balance family, community and work life situations, and to help prevent relapse. We offer several programs to meet each individuals specific treatment needs.

Chemical Dependency – Detoxification Treatment

Frequent use of drugs and alcohol can result in physical dependence, and when individuals stop using drugs and alcohol abruptly, they often experience severe withdrawal symptoms. Our inpatient detoxification program ensures safe withdrawal and the beginning of the recovery process.

Patients are detoxified under the care of a psychiatrist, nurses, social workers, and psychologists who provide medication, monitoring, and support during the withdrawal period. Additional treatment includes group therapies and activities throughout the day to address the disease of addiction.

Customized Discharge Plans

To ensure continued success when the patient leaves the hospital, we create discharge plan outlines with the patient and family for appropriate follow-up care.
