- Drug & Alcohol Treatment
At Behavioral Health Services Redgate Memorial Recovery Center, Medical Detoxification is provided in a residential setting with 24-hour medical supervision. The process is designed to make the client as comfortable as possible during withdrawal from alcohol and other drugs of abuse, with treatment lasting on average 10 – 14 days. Clients receive education about addiction, are introduced to self-help programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, and receive referrals for continuing care and other community support.
Residential Substance Abuse Treatment provides the opportunity for clients to work intensively on life issues which, if left unaddressed, often lead to relapse to substance abuse. While the average length of treatment (3 – 6 months) is generally not enough to bring full resolution to these issues, clients receive enough education and therapeutic intervention to learn tools which will assist in long term resolution of issues surrounding family and social functioning, legal problems, medical and psychiatric care, and educational and vocational concerns. Clients are taught how, and encouraged to establish a recovery support network outside of the treatment milieu in order to assist them in their continuing recovery efforts upon completion of the program.
