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 alleviating withdrawal symptoms:
Clinical and medical assessment – Before detox begins, we perform an in-depth clinical and medical assessment that gives us insight into a client’s specific needs. We then create an individualized detox plan that takes all factors of a client’s personal history into consideration. We closely examine physical health, severity of and length of substance use, family history, medical needs and potential underlying mental health conditions. Having a comprehensive understanding of a client helps us develop a more informed and effective detox plan.
24-hour clinical and medical care – Safety is paramount. Clients going through the 7-10 day detox phase of recovery are monitored by clinical and medical staff 24/7 for any potentially dangerous withdrawal symptoms and other medical complications. Staff members will be available to provide any additional comfort-based amenities that may be requested.
Medication management – Clients begin their journey to recovery in the safest, most comfortable way possible. We do everything in our power to 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 a very important component of detox. We begin relapse prevention training at the earliest possible phase of recovery. We also believe that family involvement is hugely important when it comes to successful, long-term recovery. We provide the family members of our clients with insight on how to best help their loved ones avoid relapse after completing inpatient drug detox.
Family program – In addition to educating families about relapse prevention techniques, we also provide training specifically for family members. We help families work towards improving their understanding of the disease of addiction while learning how to support their loved ones in healthy ways rather than unintentionally enabling them.
