Ambulatory and Inpatient Detox
Positive Sobriety Institute offers medically-supervised ambulatory and inpatient detox to treat severe cases of alcohol, drug, and pain medication use disorder. The ambulatory detox program is a voluntary, outpatient model with many of the benefits of inpatient detoxification but in a less-restrictive environment. Ambulatory detox is the first phase in a continuum of substance abuse recovery treatment plan.
Positive Sobriety Institute’s medically-supervised, ambulatory detox is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Individuals are under the care of an interdisciplinary team that includes medical director, Dr. Dan Angres, registered nurses, nurse practitioners, and addiction counselors.
Ambulatory detox services include assessment and patient observation, medical history, monitoring of vital signs, treatment of withdrawal symptoms, counseling, and addiction recovery planning. Ambulatory detox patients are assessed for their substance use disorders, mental health disorders, trauma and suicide risk.
Individuals for whom outpatient detox is not appropriate become candidates for inpatient detoxification. Inpatient detox at Positive Sobriety Institute offers the advantages of constant medical care and supervision provided by a professional staff who can administer immediate treatment for serious complications. Inpatient detox is appropriate for more severe cases.
Our Detox Treatment Goals
Positive Sobriety Institute recognizes that every patient has unique needs. We evaluate your needs based on the amount and types of substances you are currently using to determine the type of alcohol and drug detoxification needed. Positive Sobriety Institute utilizes the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) criteria to appropriately match the intensity of treatment to the severity of your addiction.
Positive Sobriety Institute’s Ambulatory & Inpatient Detox Program is designed to meet several goals:
- Provide detox services in a safe and medically-supervised environment
- Meet federal and state requirements for impaired professionals
- Provide a continuum of substance-abuse treatments that ultimately lead to a full recovery
Detox alone is not addiction treatment, it is the first step. The sooner treatment begins, the sooner recovery can be achieved.
