Detox services are an important part of overall wellness. By taking the time to detox, you can greatly improve your health and well-being. Detox services involve the removal of toxins from your body. This may include medications, supplements, dietary changes, and other activities designed to support the body’s natural ability to cleanse itself.
It is important to choose a detox program that is tailored to your individual needs and goals. Joining a medical detox program at a quality addiction treatment center can guide you in making the best choices for your health.
What Are Detox Services?
Detox services for drugs and alcohol provide a safe, supervised environment to support your transition into sobriety. In general, detoxification services involve the removal of toxins from your body. This may include medications, supplements, dietary changes, and other activities designed to support the body’s natural ability to cleanse itself. For this reason, quality detox services can help reduce withdrawal symptoms, cravings, and the risk of relapse.
Detox services for drugs and alcohol include:
Preliminary Screening & Intake Evaluation
Prior to any detox services, an addiction treatment program must collect the necessary information to ensure the safety of each guest and the success of the detoxification process.
In addition to answering any questions about our program, the Royal Life Centers’ team in admissions performs your pre-assessment. During this thorough assessment, admissions will ask you questions regarding your insurance, the substance or substances 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 now.
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’ eight locations across the Pacific Northwest and Southwest, admissions will explain the transportation options and narrow down the best time for your arrival.
Entering A Detox Program
Once an individual has been admitted, our clinical team will perform a series of medical assessments and evaluations to determine the severity of the addiction and any underlying mental health issues.
Using the results of each assessment, our clinical staff will also work with each individual to create an individualized treatment plan that meets their unique needs and goals. Once complete, guests will begin detoxification services with the help and guidance of experienced professionals in a comfortable, supportive environment.
Prior to beginning the detox process, guests will participate in the following:
- Admission forms
- Consent to treatment forms
- Medical history
- Physical examination
- Blood work and urine testing
- Thorough assessments
During treatment, guests will receive counseling, medication management, life skills, and other evidence-based therapies such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) in order to address all areas of need.
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 another 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?
Prior to our detox services, these thorough assessments provide our clinicians with information that determines the length of your detox and whether you require any detox medications to safely remove the toxic substances from your system.
Mental Health Evaluation
During a mental health evaluation, our experienced clinicians will examine and observe each guest and will ask a series of questions to evaluate several aspects of mental function.
Typically, mental health evaluations will review the following:
- General appearance
- Emotional expression
- Thinking and perception
- Cognitive functions
We will also take into account any medical, family, or substance abuse history that may exist. Our goal is to develop an individualized treatment plan tailored to each individual’s needs in order to achieve positive outcomes. We understand seeking help can be difficult, but we want our guests to know that they are in good hands. Our clinicians and staff strive to provide a supportive, safe environment where each guest can feel comfortable taking the first step toward recovery.
