Addiction Recovery Resources, Inc.’s Ambulatory Detoxification Program is designed to medically detoxify a patient who is actively engaged in his or her addiction, safely and discreetly, in an outpatient environment. The program includes:
The Ambulatory Detoxification Program provides a unique service to medically qualified patients that meet the protocol for this level of care. The program is an outpatient service delivered at our site by trained clinicians who provide a medically supervised evaluation and detoxification. The course of treatment is typically three to five days, Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The detoxification process is designed to treat the patient’s level of clinical severity and to achieve a safe and comfortable withdrawal from mood-altering drugs (including alcohol) and to effectively facilitate the patient’s transition into ongoing treatment and recovery. Following detoxification, each patient is referred to an appropriate level of care, Residential Treatment Program or Intensive Outpatient Program, depending on specific needs.
The treatment team at Addiction Recovery Resources, Inc. firmly believes that addiction is a chronic and progressive illness that requires treatment. Detoxification and/or maintenance therapy with medications is a perquisite for treatment, not treatment for addiction. To receive Buprenorphine, all patients would be required to be in a treatment program at Addiction Recovery Resources, Inc.
