Client safety and comfort are essential during this first phase of recovery. We rely on several methods to ensure an effective detox while keeping clients comfortable and easing withdrawal symptoms:
Clinical and medical assessment – Before detox begins, we perform an in-depth clinical and medical assessment that provides us with the insight needed to treat specific needs. We then create an individualized detox plan that takes all factors of a client into consideration: physical health, history and length of substance use, family history, medical needs, etc. Having a comprehensive understanding of a client helps us make a more informed and effective detox plan.
24-hour clinical and medical care – Safety is paramount. Clients going through the detox phase of recovery (which typically lasts between 7 and 10 days) are monitored by clinical and medical staff 24/7 for any potentially hazardous withdrawal symptoms and other medical complications.
Medication management – Clients begin their journey to recovery in the safest, most comfortable way possible. We alleviate physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms by providing each patient with a research-backed medication regimen unique to their needs that is safely administered by a fully-trained member of our staff.
Case management – Detox can be an emotional, overwhelming time for clients and their families who just want answers. Princeton Detox & Recovery Center helps eliminate stress by assigning a case manager to each client. A case manager serves as a primary point of contact and an advocate for the client’s care, ensuring a successful, safe and comfortable detox.
Relapse prevention training – Teaching clients and their families about relapse triggers and healthy coping skills is always a component of detox.
Family program – In addition to educating families about relapse and prevention techniques, we provide training specifically for family members. Families will increase their understanding of the disease of addiction and learn how to support their loved one in healthy ways, rather than unintentionally enabling them.
