Prior to any detoxification services, Royal Life Centers must collect the necessary information to ensure to safety of the guest and the success of the detox. In addition to answering any questions about our program, the Royal Life Addiction Specialists in Admissions perform your pre-assessment. During which, admissions will ask you questions regarding your insurance, the substance or substance being used, the length of your current withdrawal, and additional information to understand your unique circumstances. To begin your pre-assessment and begin treatment, please reach out to our addiction specialists.
After your pre-assessment, the admissions department will inform you of the availability at the locations most convenient for you. Once deciding on one of Royal Life Centers’ seven locations across the Pacific Northwest and Southwest, admissions will explain the transportation options and narrow down the best time for your arrival.
Now at the facility, guests will receive an initial clinical evaluation, the biopsychosocial assessment, conducted by our therapists and counselors to assess the unique factors that contribute to your substance use disorder. For this reason, our holistic assessment approaches each guest’s addiction as a complex development, influenced by different events and experiences with their life. For this reason, we understand that addictions do not exist in a vacuum — biology, psychology, and sociocultural elements all build upon one other to create an addiction. In addition, Royal Life Centers knows that addiction treatment is successful when you not only look at the person but their environment.
For example, questions on the biopsychosocial assessment can include:
- What drugs and/or alcohol do you use?
- How often do you drink and/or do drugs?
- Do you have any mental disorders diagnoses?
- How would you describe yourself?
- Do you have a personal or family history of drug or alcohol abuse?
- How much support do you expect from friends and family?
- How much stress do you experience from your job?
The assessments performed prior to our detox services provide Royal clinicians with information that determine the length of your detox and the medications required, if any, to safely remove the toxic substances from your system.
Additional steps in the pre-detox and detox process:
- Admission forms
- Consent to treatment forms
- Medical history and physical
- Pertinent blood work and urine testing
