Philosophy/Statement of Care
When you are physically dependent on a substance, the first step in the treatment journey to safely go through the detoxification process. This is achieved by using medications that directly counter the experience of withdrawing (e.g., alcohol: Librium, opiates: buprenorphine) as well as other medications that can work effectively together to counteract other symptoms such as aches and pains, upset stomach, anxiety, etc.
As this is the beginning of the recovery journey, the emphasis is placed on making sure you are comfortable and that you rest and recuperate in a stress-free environment.
We really only ask one question while you are with us for this portion of your treatment: “On the day of discharge, where will YOU go next to continue your recovery pathway?” This is YOUR plan. Our single objective is to help you get there.
