Unique treatment for each individual.
The care of patients in our chemical dependency programs is supervised and directed by specially trained doctors and nurses. Our assessment and referral team help determine each patient’s treatment needs and whether further medical interventions are recommended to help patients get sober. People suffering from addiction to drugs and alcohol must undergo detoxification – a process of removing these substances from the body – before they can truly start their journey toward sobriety. Withdrawal from many substances can pose medical risks and should be done under supervision of a doctor and other medical professionals. Some detox requires a hospital stay.
Discharge planning is an important part of maintaining your sobriety St. Joseph’s Behavioral Health Center has an extensive continuum of care for those recovering from substance abuse. We will assess your needs and discuss options available to you taking into consideration insurance coverage, transportation, family support and needs.
The Chemical Recovery Intensive Outpatient Program is designed for individuals who need comprehensive treatment because of alcohol and/or drug dependency. Individuals in this program have an acceptance of their dependency, and demonstrate a willingness and motivation to achieve recovery from alcohol and/or drug dependency without hospitalization and a motivation to remain sober through new coping skills and behaviors.They generally have supportive family and friends and an environment that can support their recovery process.
We offer a supervised medication-assisted detox treatment for individuals who are opioid dependent. Through the use of Suboxone maintenance therapy, we aim to help patients achieve long-term remission. Medication-assisted treatment options like Suboxone can help reduce the side effects of withdrawal and curb the cravings which can sometimes lead to relapse.
