Specially trained staff are available around the clock in our medically monitored residential program to help patients through withdrawal and to assist them in seeking further services to address their broader chemical abuse issues.
Medication Assisted Withdrawal Protocols
Once staff assesses your condition they will decide whether you are a good candidate for medication-assisted treatment. This will be determined by several factors including:
- Official diagnosis of alcohol or opioid addiction.
- Willingness to comply with treatment.
- No physical issues that could be made worse by medication.
- Patient is fully informed of alternative options.
You may not be an ideal candidate for medication-assisted treatment if you have:
- A history of medication misuse.
- An addiction to a substance that cannot be treated with an FDA-approved medication.
- A co-occurring substance addiction (the drug may negatively interact with medication).
- A severe physical limitation, such as lung or heart condition, that opioid agonists might complicate.
- A low level of motivation to get sober.
