Medical Detox Program

Once a person develops a substance use disorder, it can be incredibly difficult to cope. Often, people struggling with drug and alcohol abuse will avoid seeking treatment to delay the uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms. Those who do seek out help can experience relief from the cycle of addiction during a medical detox program.

Without the proper medical assistance, withdrawal symptoms can be difficult to manage and often result in relapse. When people attempt to quit drugs or alcohol on their own they may also experience life-threatening health complications.

To lessen the risks of drug and alcohol withdrawal and begin the process of recovery, it is vital to enter a medical detox program.

What Is a Detox Program?

A detox program is the first step in most addiction treatment programs and is essential for individuals with severe substance use disorders (SUDs). These programs offer medically supervised withdrawal services to assist in the detoxification process.  Licensed and experienced detox professionals provide over-the-counter and FDA-approved medication as needed to assist in the removal of all addictive substances. As a person undergoes detox, they receive around-the-clock medical care to ensure their safety and comfortability.

During medical detox, people are monitored closely and may receive medication to manage withdrawal symptoms. The goal of medical detox is to help individuals safely and comfortably go through the withdrawal process while preparing them for further treatment.

Medical Detoxification Services at The Haven

Detox is the quickest part of the recovery process, but it’s also the most important. Our team of experienced medical professionals works with people from all walks of life and knows that each person who enters treatment arrives with their own unique experiences that benefit from personalized care. This is because we understand how challenging the first few days can be for our new guests as they take the initial step toward a new life of sobriety. As we usher each guest through detox, a vast range of emotions will surface. We are here to help you work through your feelings in a way that aids healing.

Our medical staff understands the extent of drug withdrawal and its damaging effects on the mind and body, so we provide support during each step of the process. To treat each guest with dignity and respect, our staff members tailor our treatment services to meet your individual needs in early recovery. We recognize that detox is only the start of your new life in recovery, and our purpose is to help you begin your journey. Because We Care.

Withdrawal from drugs and alcohol is not easy. Without professional assistance, those attempting to overcome a substance use disorder may experience severe flu-like symptoms and even life-threatening complications like grand mal seizures.

What Happens During Detox?

In addition to a pre-assessment during the initial admissions process, we conduct in-depth medical evaluations on each guest when they enter our detox facility. As a part of our comprehensive treatment approach, these thorough assessments provide background information on each guest’s unique circumstances, medical background, and history of substance abuse. The insights we gain assist us in building out an individualized treatment plan for each guest as they begin the detoxification process.

Depending on the substances in your system, the length of use, and the amount used, our team of medical professionals will collaborate to create your treatment plan. Within your treatment plan, you will experience safe, compassionate care from our experienced team of doctors, nurses, and behavioral health technicians as your body is cleared of all toxins.

During treatment in our medical detox program, we offer observational detox services and medication-assisted detox services on a case-by-case basis to ensure each guest receives the most appropriate treatment for their individual needs.

Thorough Assessments & Evaluations

Our treatment approach centers around understanding the whole person, not just their behaviors or symptoms. In order to provide individualized care that meets the needs of our guests, our medical staff performs evaluations based on the bio-psycho-social-spiritual model.

These in-depth questionnaires assist in developing an overview of each guest’s biology, psychology, social influences, and spirituality. More specifically, our intake evaluations and assessments address the following:

Compiles an individual’s full medical history including physical conditions, mental health disorders, and patterns of substance abuse. These can be used to determine the most effective treatment approach during detox and treatment as a whole.

Outlines an individual’s psychological well-being, any past or current mental health diagnoses, and a review of any medications prescribed in the past for those issues. This can provide a basis for dual diagnosis treatment services such as medication management for co-occurring disorders.

Looks into an individual’s social support system such as family and friends, living environment, school or workplace settings, and any issues experienced in these areas. 

Identifies the presence of any beliefs, attitudes, or practices that may give meaning to suffering, providing comfort in times of stress that are out of a person’s control.

In general, the bio-psycho-social-spiritual model expands upon the questions asked during each guest’s pre-assessment portion of our admissions process. By assessing the four fundamental aspects of a person’s life, our treatment specialists gain a better understanding of your current situation and develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your needs. These evaluations also provide a baseline for measuring your progress over time in treatment.

Individualized Treatment Plans

Depending on the substances in your system, the length of use, and the amount used, our team of medical professionals will collaborate to create your individualized treatment plan. Within your treatment plan, you will experience safe, compassionate care from our experienced team of doctors, nurses, and behavioral health technicians as your body is cleared of all toxins.

During treatment in our medical detox program, we offer observational detox services and medication-assisted detox services on a case-by-case basis to ensure each guest receives the most appropriate treatment for their individual needs.

Detox Safety Protocols & Procedures

We place the utmost priority on proper symptom monitoring and management throughout each guest’s time in detox. Our team of dedicated medical professionals is available 24/7, continuously monitoring your physical and mental symptoms to ensure your comfort and checking your vitals every fifteen minutes to ensure your safety. We aim to provide you with the care and support you need during this time.

At The Haven, all of our detox staff follow the proper safety protocols and procedures to ensure our guest’s well-being. Knowing that detox is often a difficult process for our guests, we also provide the necessary resources and guidance needed to achieve successful outcomes. All of our detox services seek to make the withdrawal process as painless as possible so that our guests are fully prepared for the next stage of their treatment.

Medical Detox

Our medical detox facility offers a full 8-day medical detox program, tailored to meet each guest’s specific needs. For this reason, our medically-assisted detox services incorporate comfort medications and medical tapers to prevent life-threatening health complications and minimize severe withdrawal symptoms. The necessity of these treatment services is determined on a case-by-case basis and depends on each guest’s individual needs. To make the detox process as safe and as comfortable as possible, our team of qualified clinicians provides 24/7 medical care and supervision. In doing so, we offer non-stop support and are readily available to address our guests’ needs as they arise.

Observational Detox

Guests who do not require medically-assisted detoxification are ushered into a 4-day observational detox. During the observational period, we monitor each guest to ensure their safety as their bodies are cleansed of toxins. Our team of nurses and medical professionals provide around-the-clock care, performing 15-minute wellness checks. As a result, guests can reach out to any of our staff members with questions, concerns, or companionship during detox. Guests undergoing observation may also receive comfort medications to lower their discomfort, manage any negative side effects, and assist in sleep and relaxation. However, the medications provided during our observational detox are not considered medical tapers.

Inpatient Therapy Services

The Haven is dedicated to providing a safe, supportive, and therapeutic environment for our guests. We have an experienced team of licensed counselors and therapists trained in addiction treatment who will be there for you every step of the way. Our compassionate staff is committed to helping you develop the skills and resources necessary to maintain sobriety following treatment. 

During detox, we offer evidence-based therapies and other holistic treatments to help you address the root of your addiction. Some of our inpatient therapy services include individual counseling, group therapy, and 12-step programs to assist in the development of healthy coping skills. We also provide ongoing education on addiction and mental health to help you better understand addiction and its effects on your life.

Since sobriety is an ever-evolving process, we also offer a variety of experiential activities and expressive therapies such as art therapy, music therapy, and adventure therapy to help reignite your passion for life. To boost your overall mental health, our detox program provides holistic wellness services that focus on healing the connection between the mind, body, and spirit. For instance, guests can learn yoga techniques and participate in mindfulness meditation practices. Throughout our inpatient programs, we provide nutrition counseling to ensure that your body is nourished and supported throughout the detox process.

Family Services During Treatment

During detox, our guest’s relatives can receive regular updates on their loved ones’ treatment progress if they sign a release. No matter how delicate the circumstances, our staff strives to maintain an open channel of communication between you and your loved ones. Due to HIPAA regulations, however, all information regarding a Royal Life Centers guest is kept confidential. In order to recieve information about your parent, child, spouse, or loved one during treatment, they must sign a release of information form.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you or a loved one has any questions about our medical detox program.
