TYPES OF ADDICTION TREATMENT PROGRAMS
Melrose Recovery offers a full spectrum of substance abuse treatment services to clients, based upon his or her individual needs as assessed through comprehensive evaluations at admission and throughout their participation in the addiction treatment program. The assignment to and frequency of services corresponds to individualized treatment plans within the context of the level of care and treatment intensity level. Please refer to the following for a list of provided levels of care:
Our treatment facility will work with local providers to assess a client's detox needs. Once clients have been medically cleared, facility staff transports them to a specified residential setting that is staffed 24/7 by Behavioral Technicians. Clients administer their own medication in the presence of BMTs. For the safety of clients, medications are kept in a secure location that remains locked at all times. In case of non-life threatening emergencies or to report changes in a client's mental, physical, or emotional status, we have providers on-call to assist.
Clients enter residential treatment, also known as inpatient treatment, once they are medically cleared and their withdrawal symptoms have stabilized. Residential clients reside at our facilities and are monitored 24/7. Staff ensures clients are safe, actively involved in their treatment program and are attending regular group therapy and individual therapy sessions. Co-occurring behavioral and mental health issues are addressed, as appropriate. Co-occurring issues commonly treated in an addiction treatment program are depression, bipolar, anxiety, and trauma conditions.
HOW DETOX WORKS AT MELROSE RECOVERY
STEP 1: ON-SITE ASSESSMENT
When clients walk through our doors, they are greeted by staff and escorted to a private area for discussion, assessment and completion of paperwork. This initial on-site assessment helps determine the needed intensity of treatment services and level of care based on presenting symptoms and conditions.
STEP 2: CLINICAL ASSESSMENT
Within 24 hours of admission, additional assessments that include medical history and physical and psychological evaluations are completed based on the assessments’ findings. Nurses obtain orders for medications from licensed physicians that help reduce or eliminate any withdrawal symptoms.
STEP 3: TAPERING PROGRAM
Detox tapering protocols are started according to physician’s orders. Tapering protocols signify how long the drug detox or alcohol detox program will last, approximately, and the pace at which daily dosages of detox medications will be reduced.
It is important to emphasize that each person’s withdrawal experience is unique based on:
- Substance(s) used (including amount, frequency and method of use)
-Severity of addiction (including history and progression)
-Co-occurring medical and mental health conditions
This is why we take the time to thoroughly assess and gather each person’s input and preferences. We realize that in order to effectively help, we must treat to your experience.
STEP 4: TRANSITION TO TREATMENT
The National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA) reports that the longer the time between detox and residential treatment, the greater the risk of relapse. It is for this reason that clients immediately transition from our detox program upon completion to one of our addiction treatment programs.
I'M AFRAID TO ENTER TREATMENT BECAUSE I DON'T WANT TO GO THROUGH WITHDRAWAL. WHAT SHOULD I DO?
Detox can be challenging, but there is no need to be fearful of withdrawal. Our facilities that provide on-site detoxification are staffed with licensed medical teams that closely monitor clients for signs and symptoms of withdrawal. By progressing through the detox process, withdrawal symptoms tremendously diminish.
WHAT IS THE DETOX ENVIRONMENT AT MELROSE RECOVERY CENTERS LIKE?
Detox rooms are located away from the main areas of the facilities to promote a quiet environment, especially during peak days of withdrawal. Detox rooms are close to staff offices for easy access as frequent monitoring is necessary.
