If you’re having trouble breaking dependency on one or more substances, you are likely an eligible candidate for a drug detox program. Long-term substance abuse causes changes to the brain that impacts its ability to function. Suddenly cutting off that supply often causes negative reactions, as the brain does everything possible to get a person to provide it with more.
When individuals come to Compass Detox, they can expect a three-stage process as they work through detoxification from drugs or alcohol.
The first step will be the intake and evaluation. This is where our team of treatment experts assesses the client’s current situation and needs. By taking a complete medical history as possible, our staff can determine the best detox program to meet the client’s specific needs. Some will come to Compass Detox requiring immediate medical detox, while others with a milder substance use disorder will need a more therapeutic approach. The evaluation stage is where we determine together which path of recovery is best.
After evaluation, the stabilization stage commences. It makes up the majority of treatment in an inpatient detox program. During this stage, clients adjust to their new residential environment. The detox process takes time to acclimate to as individuals learn just how affected their body has become by the drugs or alcohol they have been abusing. This is also the stage where any medication-assisted treatment can begin to help ease withdrawal symptoms and cravings. Our compassionate team of counselors and therapists will also help clients begin to work through their addiction at this stage.
The final stage is aftercare. Once through stabilization with the drugs or alcohol out of their system and a treatment strategy in place, individuals can look towards further treatment. Detox is just the start of recovery for many individuals. To avoid relapse and learn how to identify triggers and overcome them, it is necessary to find the appropriate treatment program.
Compass Detox can walk all clients through this process, help establish clear goals, and learn what addiction treatment programs would be the best fit.
