As a subsidiary of Guardian Recovery Network, Princeton Detox & Recovery Center will be instrumental in maintaining our parent company’s reputation as a visionary leader in substance abuse treatment. With decades of experience that continually inform our treatment philosophy, we know that the first step toward a successful recovery is a safe, comfortable detox.
Our medically-supervised detox program, which lasts 7-10 days, is designed by highly qualified and experienced medical and clinical professionals and prioritizes individualized care that meets a client’s unique needs. Instead of experiencing detox in a sterile hospital environment, clients detox in a home-like setting with round-the-clock care.
During the detox process, we will:
- Evaluate the client’s level of addiction, the substance used and the length of time the substance has been used
- Assess the client’s overall physical health
- Manage and alleviate symptoms associated with withdrawal
Detox is necessary to cleanse the body of addictive substances without jeopardizing comfort or safety. We ensure an exceptionally comfortable detox facilitated by an exceptionally skilled staff. Princeton Detox & Recovery Center offers four types of medically-supervised detox services, including:
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 gives us insight into a client’s 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 7-10 day detox phase of recovery 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. Should a client continue to our residential treatment program, he or she will keep working with their case manager.
Relapse prevention training. Teaching clients and their families about relapse triggers and healthy coping skills is always a component of detox, whether a client is relying on our services solely for detox or plans to continue treatment with our residential program.
Family program. In addition to educating families about relapse and prevention techniques, we also 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 instead of enabling them.
