Models of Treatment Summarized
Medical Detox — This stage of recovery is the first vital step to getting on the road to recovery. If an individual has been abusing drugs or alcohol for any length of time, their body and brain has become accustomed to operating with the substance. When this substance is suddenly yanked from the central nervous system, individuals experience a range of withdrawal symptoms that can be agonizing — even life-threatening — if not treated properly. Our medical detox facilities offer 24/7 medical supervision, medication assisted treatment, therapy, holistic treatments (such as yoga, meditation and acupuncture), case management and aftercare planning. After an individual is physically stabilized (which generally takes between 3 to 14 days), we help them transfer into the next appropriate level of care to continue their journey of recovery.
Residential Inpatient Treatment — Residential inpatient treatment is a form of treatment where individuals live in a residential treatment setting for approximately 28 to 60 days. This part of treatment involves a wide range of individual, family and group therapies, educational workshops, life skills training, recovery meetings and holistic treatment methods.
Partial Hospitalization (PHP) — PHP is the logical next step following a residential inpatient setting. In partial hospitalization, clients generally live in a sober living home close to the treatment facility. Clients are shuttled back and forth to the treatment center to participate in approximately 5-6 days a week of programming, starting in the morning and ending in the evening with a lunch break. On their days off, clients slowly begin to learn how to reintegrate into the world at large. During this phase, clients can also participate in outside, public recovery meetings if they desire.
Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP) — This form of treatment is generally seen as a transition step for individuals as they begin to be in the world again. Individuals can attend work or school while attending groups a few times a week and either living at home or in a sober living environment. This form of treatment can be entered after a medical detox, residential inpatient, partial hospitalization program or, for some select individuals with more mild cases of addiction or specific life circumstances, as a standalone treatment method.
