Once you attain physical stability, clients meet with a Chemical Dependency Professional for assessment and referral services; this can include direct referrals to a Residential Treatment Program or Outpatient Services.

SECURE DETOX VOLUNTARY ACUTE
Acute – Medically Assisted Treatment (MAT)
Medical Assisted Treatment (MAT) safely manages the acute physical symptoms of withdrawal associated with stopping substance use. We may prescribe medication to minimize your discomfort; the average stay in our acute program is 7-10 days.
Subacute – Non-Medically Assisted Treatment
Non-Medically Assisted Treatment provides detoxification services to individuals who have used a substance within the last 24 hours but are not in need of medically managed services. Clients may take prescribed medications if given by the hospital prior to admission. Typical length of stay for alcohol withdrawal is 3 to 5 days; other substances may be from 5 to 7 days.
