Step 5: Our Clinical Team Conducts a Comprehensive Medical Assessment
Upon Admission into our Bracebridge Hall facility, all patients receive a comprehensive medical assessment conducted by our team of highly-trained nurses, doctors and psychologists. Our medical evaluation assesses an individual’s entire being and history- including medical, psychological and social. This comprehensive evaluation helps us determine the root causes of one’s addiction as well as factors that may be exacerbating one’s substance abuse problem – and from this we can create an individualized treatment plan.
- Medical Evaluation, History and Physical Examination
Within 24 hours of admission to our facility, all patients receive a medical evaluation, history and examination. Our team of licensed medical staff will obtain a comprehensive medical history of each patient that enters our facility. This medical assessment includes: family medical history, pre-existing conditions, medications and allergies. All patients will take a urine drug test to test for drugs in the system. For patients who test positive for opiates, or report having used opiates, we will perform additional testing to check for Fentanyl in the system. Fentanyl is an extremely potent opiate that is often used in heroin and can be very dangerous, which is why we take so many precautions when testing for opiates. All patients that test positive for Fentanyl, will be heavily monitored, including a full set of vital monitoring for the first 24 hours following admission.
- Biopsychosocial Assessment The purpose of the biopsychosocial assessment is to ensure all patients receive accurate and comprehensive evaluation and to establish a clear understanding of our patient’s needs, strengths, ability and areas that the patient would like to focus on, from this, we identify the most appropriate level of care for the patient. The biopsychosocial assessment is the foundation for developing each patient’s individualized treatment plan. During the biopsychosocial assessment our medical team evaluates the following areas:
- Demographics, including age, sex, etc.
- Alcohol and Drug history: when drug use started, pattern of use and duration
- History of mental, emotional, behavioral, legal and social consequences of dependence
- Family and Relationships including one’s current living situation
- Recreational Assessment that encompasses patient’s physical abilities and limitations
- Employment or Vocational History
- History of physical, emotional and social problems associated with their substance use disorder
- History of other addictive disorders, such as nicotine or gambling
- Spiritual and Religious Beliefs
- Previous medical, psychological and substance use treatment and responses to those treatments
- History of physical, sexual and other types of abuse
- Suicidal and Homicidal attempts or ideation
- Past Trauma, Abuse, Neglect or Exploitation
Following the biopsychosocial assessment, our clinical team will administer a substance abuse diagnosis, behavioral health and psychiatric diagnosis (when applicable) using the Diagnostic Statistical Manual. We will also determine the appropriate level of care for each patient by using the American Society of Addiction Medicines Patient Placement Criteria. All patient treatment plans are reviewed by and signed off by our Clinical Supervisor.
Step 6: Our Medical Team Initiates Your Medically-Supervised Detoxification
When someone attempts to withdrawal from drugs or alcohol on their own they can have serious side effects that are not only uncomfortable but dangerous. We offer 24/7 medically-supervised detoxification to all of our patients who require it. Our team will provide around-the-clock care, ensure that our patients detoxify both safely and comfortably.
We provide individualized, evidence-based drug and alcohol inpatient treatment to patients suffering from addiction to alcohol, heroin, opioids and prescription drugs. Patients in this program follow a structured 12-hour a day curriculum that includes family, group and individual therapy, health and wellness coaching, life-skills workshops and more. We offer specialty treatment programs for young men, young women and adults taking a specialized approach to addiction treatment that identifies and treats the root causes of one’s addiction.
Step 8: We Incorporate You and Your Family into Our Family Program
We believe that having a solid and healthy support system is essential on the road to recovery. One of the advantages of our neighborhood treatment centers is that patients and their families can easily participate in our family programming- that offers weekly family therapy sessions and interactive activities. These family therapy sessions focus on restoring family dynamics and helping family members better understand the disease of addiction so that they can provide valuable support along the road to recovery.
Step 9: We Prepare Your Aftercare Planning in one of our World-Class Facilities
Our primary therapists will work with each patient individually to determine the appropriate level of aftercare that fits their needs and accommodates their lifestyle.
Partial Hospitalization (PHP): This level of care is meant for patients who more support and structure after leaving inpatient treatment. Patients in our PHP program meet daily for 6 hours a day and participate in individual and group therapy focusing on developing the tools necessary for long-term recovery.
Intensive Outpatient (IOP): The Intensive Outpatient program includes 3, 4- hour long group sessions per week. This level of care is meant to reinforce behavior and skills learned in inpatient treatment. This program typically runs for a duration of 4-6 weeks.
General Outpatient (GOP): Patients in our General Outpatient Program participate in weekly individual and group therapy sessions for a period of time as determined by the patient’s Primary Therapist.
Patients in our aftercare program will be gradually transitioned back into their daily life and activities, at a pace they find manageable. We provide our patients with continued support and even help them find additional support groups in their area- such as NA and AA.
Our Alumni and Family Support Programs are crucial elements of our long-term treatment and recovery process, as they create a safe and welcoming environment for alumni, family and friends to continue to establish a life in meaningful recovery. Our alumni program provides weekly and monthly activities and events for networking, fun and life skills all while promoting sober living. This program is also meant to help foster mentorship through the handing down of recovery principles from one generation to the next.
