What to Look for in a Medical Detox Center
Medical detox is a necessary first step on most long-term plans for addiction recovery. While in a medical detox center, a person undergoes a safe and pain-free drug and/or alcohol withdrawal under the care of a team of medical professionals. As soon as symptoms of withdrawal develop, they are effectively treated with a combination of evidence-based detoxification methods. Depending on a person’s substance of choice and the severity of the substance abuse disorder, he or she has access to a range of treatment options including tapering, medication assisted treatment, holistic methods of healing and intensive therapy.
At Pine Tree Recovery Center we offer the following services in addition to these standard treatment methods:
Addiction assessment – At Pine Tree Recovery Center, we remain dedicated to providing the most individualized clinical care possible. In order to provide the most focused care possible during every phase of the recovery process, we regularly conduct in-depth clinical and medical assessments that help us determine where each individual client is in his or her recovery program. Upon admission to our detox center, we conduct an in-depth assessment that helps our clinical team determine which detoxification methods are going to be the most effective for each unique case.
Case management services – Upon admission to our medical detox program, each one of our clients is paired up with an experienced case manager who will walk him or her through every stage of the early recovery process. Not only does this case manager act as a client advocate, but he or she serves as the main point of contact between the clinical team and the loved ones of the client. It is the job of the case manager to keep the immediate family members of the client updated on progress in recovery and future treatment plans.
