- Chemical Dependency Treatment
When individuals arrive to embark on the road to recovery they are medically and psychiatrically assessed. In addition, patients are given a comprehensive orientation to the program. Individuals who are nicotine dependant are offered Nicotine Replacement Therapy. Each patient is closely monitored by our experienced and dedicated addiction specialists for medical and emotional complications. Individuals continue to receive this level of service until all the withdrawal symptoms have thoroughly abated. The average length of stay is between three-five days.
Individuals who are withdrawing from drugs and alcohol can feel physically and emotionally uncomfortable. Therefore they are given the space and time to heal. All individuals are stabilized and meet with their primary counselor to develop a personalized, comprehensive treatment plan. The main focus of this plan is establishing the patient’s next level of care. This aspect of treatment is of paramount importance as it is well known that when individuals do not go on to a higher level of care they are more likely to relapse. Our empathetic and knowledgeable staff utilize evidence based strategies and thoroughly explore patient’s personal history as well as achievements. ACI believes that self-efficacy increases when individuals have the opportunity and platform to acknowledge their achievements, and affirmative personal qualities. Individuals are seen daily and families are invited to attend treatment in person, telephonically, through video chat, or during arranged visitation.
Individuals are encouraged to attend as many groups as they can in order to learn coping skills to avoid their relapse triggers, to socialize with peers in a sober environment, and to explore their personal experiences and expectations.
Cell phones and other valuable electronic devices are strongly discouraged from being brought to treatment. Cell phones are not permitted while participating in Inpatient Treatment.
