An Overview Of Our Detoxification Process
At the Bay Addiction and Detoxification Center, our primary focus is to give each and every one of our patients the comprehensive and individually designed detoxification plan that they deserve. Each patient speaks with one of our professionally trained medical staff for an initial assessment so that we can understand the needs of each patient. This time also allows for us to get to know you better and to answer any questions you may have.
Medical and Mental Health Evaluation
The next step in the process after the initial assessment is a full medical and mental health evaluation.
In order for us to develop the best treatement plan for our patients, we will obtain:
- Physical health history
- Substance abuse history
- Mental health history
- Family history
Medically Supervised Detoxification Treatment
Getting off drugs and alcohol is very difficult physically, emotionally, and mentally. Our top priority is making the detoxification process as comfortable and as safe as possible for our patients. Every single patient will have personalized care provided, utilizing up to date medications and treatment. During treatment, our medical staff works to support you to overcome the physical and psychological symptoms of withdrawal. We offer medications to minimize discomfort and we monitor you carefully to ensure your safety.
Safe Transition into on-going Addiction Recovery
Treatment begins with detoxification, but it does not end there. The period immediately after detoxification carries a high risk of relapse. It is important that appropriate support is in place. Living life without drugs or alcohol is a lifelong process. At the Bay Addiction and Detoxification Center, we continue to support patients through this difficult period. We help them to replace their destructive behaviors and assist them to get back to their lives. To prevent relapse, you need time to fully recover from the effects of drugs or alcohol. Your brain needs abstinence, continued treatment, and time in order to heal.
We strongly advise that you incorporate a recovery program into your life which may include the following:
- Intensive Outpatient Program
- Individual Counseling
- Family Counseling
- Continued medical care from an addiction medicine specialist
