OUTPATIENT DETOX PROGRAM

ABOUT OUR CHARLOTTE DETOXIFICATION SERVICES

Our outpatient 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 alcohol, mood-altering drugs and substances. Each client receives individualized care from our nurses and trained clinicians.

WHO IT’S FOR

When someone has suffered from a substance use disorder 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 outpatient detox program is a great fit for those who need 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 outpatient detoxification.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Our outpatient detoxification program encourages participation in our 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 regarding 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.

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 clinical staff as we work to eliminate the body and brain’s dependency on drugs or alcohol.

The client will also receive daily dual assessments, education on the proper self-administration of medication, and case management with help transitioning to ongoing treatment as well as after-care 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, and can also include the following ASAM driven criteria:

  • ASAM Level 1D-Withdrawal Management (Outpatient), ambulatory withdrawal management without extended on-site monitoring
  • ASAM Level 2D-Withdrawal Management (Intensive Outpatient and Partial Hospitalization), ambulatory withdrawal management with extended on-site monitoring
PROGRAM BENEFITS

Outpatient 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, 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.
