Four Stages Of Addiction Treatment Services
Includes 24-hour nursing and physician and/or nurse practitioner supervision for patient safety in establishing sobriety and mental stability. Staff physicians provide a medical history and physical examination, comprehensive psychiatric evaluation, and medication recommendations. Clinical staff provide a biopsychosocial assessment including substance use and mental health history, physical health status, family background, environmental factors, social functioning, nutritional needs, legal history, occupational history, and spirituality issues.
Under the leadership of the attending psychiatrist and/or nurse practitioner, the multidisciplinary treatment team works with the patient to develop a treatment plan to achieve and maintain sobriety and mental wellness. The treatment plan identifies primary diagnosis and secondary diagnosis with treatment goals, objectives, and a timeline for completion.
Includes daily treatment sessions with the attending psychiatrist and/or nurse practitioner. Program components include cognitive behavioral therapy, denial management counseling, relapse prevention counseling, and/or relapse prevention therapy. These treatment services are designed to assist the patient in learning how to manage denial factors that lead to relapse, and daily sober living skills that help prevent relapse.
The treatment team works with the patient and significant others to determine the next step in the recovery process that will provide ongoing support and reinforcement. Continuing care options include a partial hospitalization program, intensive outpatient program, outpatient anti-craving medication management, individual therapy, family therapy, 12-step programs, and alumni support groups.
