- Drug & Alcohol Treatment
The care of patients in our chemical dependency programs is supervised and directed by specially trained doctors and nurses. Our assessment and referral team help determine each patient’s treatment needs and whether further medical interventions are recommended to help patients get sober. People suffering from addiction to drugs and alcohol must undergo detoxification – a process of removing these substances from the body – before they can truly start their journey toward sobriety. Withdrawal from many substances can pose medical risks and should be done under supervision of a doctor and other medical professionals. Some detox requires a hospital stay.
Discharge planning is an important part of maintaining your sobriety. St. Joseph’s Behavioral Health Center has an extensive continuum of care for those recovering from substance abuse. We will assess your needs and discuss options available to you taking into consideration insurance coverage, transportation, family support and needs.
