Drug & Alcohol Detoxification
For some patients, the first step in treatment may be detoxification in which the symptoms of withdrawal are medically managed and minimized over a period of days. This process is conducted in a separate medical unit, supervised by experienced nurses and physicians.
Breaking an addiction doesn’t happen in a few days of detox – it’s a first step that leads to other levels of care. While a patient certainly can feel physical discomfort during the detox process, in almost all cases pain is managed with pharmaceutical therapies that lessen, if not eliminate discomfort.
Customized: The detox process is personalized for each patient’s specific medical needs.
Foundational: Detox creates a foundation that helps stabilize the patient prior to rehabilitation treatment.
Support: As the patient’s physical condition improves, emotional supports are introduced to address the psychological recovery process.
As their health improves, patients are gently introduced to new coping tools and concepts to help start their engagement in the recovery process. Detox patients participate in their own group and individual counseling sessions, dining hours, and other activities.
Livengrin has a dedicated detox family therapist who works exclusively with patients and their families to provide a bridge for effective communication and clinical guidance during this volatile time.
Educational groundwork is provided to patients to alleviate their fears, get answers to questions about what they can expect and learn about their medications.
The Livengrin rehabilitation clinical staff visits detox groups to talk about the early phases of recovery. There are also meetings with patients who are close to leaving rehabilitation. During these meetings these patients detail their own experiences and perspectives to expose the detox patients to the clinical continuum of care.
Livengrin emphasizes family care during the detox period, giving help and hope to the family of the patient. Specialized services provide education about why and how their loved one has become addicted, and how the patient will begin their journey to sobriety.
Following detox, patients may transfer to residential rehabilitation for the next step on the road to recovery.
