What is detoxification?

Detoxification is often the first step on the road to recovery. The primary goal of detox is physical stabilization under the supervision of a Family Physician certified in Addiction Medicine, Nurses, and Addiction Counselors. Our residential detox program insures you a comfortable detox by reducing withdrawal symptoms. You will be treated with cutting-edge opiate detox methods that utilize subutex® and suboxone®, or buprenorphine hydrochloride.

Once stabilized you are ready to begin a structured treatment program that can bring together the emotional, physical and spiritual aspects of the recovery process.

What is residential drug and alcohol treatment?

Imagine finding the skills you need to change your life. The concepts of recovery are simple yet not often easy to incorporate into your life without the guidance, education and support that a residential program offers. The Camp Residential Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation programs offer this support structure.

A structured daily schedule includes a variety of recovery-oriented activities, which may include group therapy, relapse prevention, education, 12 step meetings, mediation, yoga, recreational activities, cultural philosophy and treatment planning sessions with an experienced case manager. The result is a powerful experience.

What is day treatment?

Day treatment allows you to participate in a drug and alcohol recovery program and return home every evening. CRC Health Group offers in several locations an option for living in a safe, supportive, drug and alcohol recovery oriented environment at very affordable rates while attending this program.

By going home each evening, you have the opportunity to practice the principles of recovery in your daily life. By returning to the facility each day gives you the chance to share with peers and staff your successes and barriers of staying clean and sober.

Day treatment is best utilized as a continued treatment from residential or detox if you able to stay clean and sober without a 24-hour residential setting. Day treatment can offer a smooth transition back into the community with the continued support of peers and a caring treatment team.

What is intensive outpatient treatment (IOP)?

Intensive Outpatient sessions are held up to 3 times a week. Day and evening programs are available to fit your schedule. Intensive Outpatient Treatment can show you the road to recovery. In the groups sessions you will continue to practice and refine recovery and drug and alcohol relapse prevention skills necessary for a life free from chemical dependency.

Structured groups are designed to explore relapse triggers, provide a forum to talk about the magic and the difficulties of staying clean and sober one day at a time.

What is the average age of patients at the facility?
