Medical detoxification is often the first step toward a life in recovery. Our kind, caring, and experienced medical staff will help ease the fear and discomfort that may come with physical withdrawal. Our medical protocols are developed with safety and stability as a priority.
The National Institute for Drug Abuse says medical detoxification, “safely manages the acute physical symptoms of withdrawal associated with stopping drug use.” However, this is one of the first stages in addiction treatment. Individuals who seek medical detoxification often need long-term counseling, individual and family therapy, and other social services to help them get back on their feet."
Operation PAR develops comprehensive plans for all of our medical detox patients. Through this process, we can support individuals throughout the detox process and for several months after to safely guide the recovery process.
There are two types of medical detoxification offered by Operation PAR: inpatient and outpatient. We recommend patients to one of these options based on their lifestyle, needs, and support options available.
During inpatient detoxification, patients stay at our facilities until the process is complete. Along with a physical health screening, Operation PAR’s inpatient detoxification program includes a psychosocial assessment, medically monitored detoxification, and stabilization for individuals dependent on drugs and alcohol who meet the admission criteria.
Your time in detox will vary based on your needs, and the average length of stay ranges between 72 hours and six days. We treat all with care, kindness and respect, and take steps to thoroughly prepare you for your recovery journey.
The inpatient detox process includes:
24-hr medical supervision
Physical health screening
During the detoxification process, Operation PAR staff will help you develop a care plan that may include referrals to community, educational, legal, and social services. These recommendations are made based on individual needs and are meant to help you regain your life and stability after your physical detoxification.
After our initial assessment, you may be eligible for our outpatient detox program. Outpatient services are similar to inpatient care and use similar services, but patients do not necessarily live on campus during this time period. Outpatient detox typically takes longer than inpatient care, as our medical staff needs to make sure you don’t relapse outside of our center or face risk factors that make it easy to fall into old habits.
Outpatient detox ranges from 10 to 14 consecutive days, for four hours a day, and personal transportation is required. Short term living arrangements may be provided while participating in the outpatient detox program. Our room and board options are meant for patients who are in need of an environment conducive to recovery.
The outpatient detox process includes:
Daily medical monitoring
Additional resources as needed
Lunch is provided
