- Addiction Assessment – A four-part, detailed, addiction assessment is conducted before a client is admitted to our recovery program. This report includes psychosocial, psychological, medical and physical evaluations. The addiction assessment conducted initially helps the medical team including our clinical team. It helps evaluate and determines which detox methods will be the most effective given everyone has a unique case. No two experiences with alcoholism are the same. For that reasoning alone, no two medical detox programs will and should be identical. Therefore we put a lot of thought, and care to come up with a custom-tailored detox plan for each individual client. We also base our custom-tailored detox plans on any underlying health issues including their personal background.

Each client is assigned a case manager upon admission. The case manager for our medical detox program helps the client develop a structurally solid plan for continuing care. They also answer any questions the client may have. The case manager also offers additional support including communicating with their loved ones. The clinical team and the case managers work closely together to ensure that all personal treatment goals are being reached. The aftercare plan is also equally as important, making sure it is modified throughout treatment accordingly as the client recovery process progresses.
- Thorough Aftercare Planning – It’s a top priority of which we ensure that every client leaves our program with a realistic and viable aftercare plan in place. Majority of the aftercare plans contain an immediate transition into the following appropriate level of clinical care.
