OUTPATIENT DETOX PROGRAM

ABOUT OUR OUTPATIENT DETOX PROGRAM

Our detoxification services are part of an organized outpatient treatment program designed to treat the individual in a safe and comfortable environment as they work to cleanse their body of mood-altering drugs, including alcohol. Each client receives individualized care from our nurses and trained clinicians, as well as our board certified psychiatrist and addictionologist. The Blanchard Institute is the only facility in the region with a full-time psychiatrist on staff. These professionals provide on-site monitoring with medically supervised evaluation, assessment, detoxification, therapy and referral services throughout regularly scheduled outpatient sessions.

WHO IT’S FOR

When someone has suffered from a substance use disorder or alcohol abuse long-term, their body and brain have become dependent on those substances to function, and that dependency is not easy to shake. There are many symptoms and side effects that come with giving up an addiction, which makes it hard to seek out and commit to making that change. Our detox program is a great fit for those who are in need of support to safely manage their withdrawal symptoms and transition to ongoing treatment and recovery. A client is eligible for this level of care when a substance use disorder diagnosis is present, and the client meets ASAM’s (American Society of Addiction Medicine) criteria for detoxification.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Our outpatient detoxification program requires participation in structured day treatment and intensive outpatient treatment. Every step throughout this treatment program is closely monitored and administered by our support team.

During the admissions process and initial assessment, our team will first obtain the client’s comprehensive medical history as well as demographics and pertinent information from the client and/or their family members in regard to the reason they are seeking help. The care team will then conduct a clinical pre screen, physical examination and comprehensive biopsychosocial evaluation to determine the appropriate treatment at this level of care.

After admission the client receives a specialized psychological consultation; biomedical, emotional, behavioral and cognitive support; 24-hour access to emergency medical consultations; appropriate laboratory tests and toxicology reports; and management of intoxication and withdrawal signs/symptoms by the physician and clinical staff  as we work to eliminate the body and brain’s dependency on drugs or alcohol.

The client will also receive ongoing daily dual assessment, education on the proper self-administration of medication, and case management with help in discharge or transfer planning, in which family members will be included. These outpatient detox services may vary from client to client depending on the individual’s need at the time of their initial assessment.

PROGRAM BENEFITS

Detox is an essential element of lasting recovery. It is such an important part of the recovery journey because it treats the physical aspect of substance use disorders and alcohol abuse, helping to eliminate the body’s craving and the chemicals within the body. However, it is important to remember that detox is not a “quick fix.” Participation in our detox program at The Blanchard Institute is one of many steps in our comprehensive treatment plan to achieve a healthy, long-lasting life of recovery.
