Outpatient Detox is a very affordable, medical treatment program that has been carefully designed to detoxify individuals meeting criteria at home. For those individuals who must continue to work or have family obligations, Coastal’s outpatient detox can, for individuals that meet outpatient detox criteria, be preferable option since it does not require a full time stay within Coastal’s medical detox facility. Outpatient Detox also affords a level of privacy to individuals beginning their journey of recovery from substance abuse.
How Does Outpatient Detox Work?
Coastal’s individualized Outpatient Detox, which can last anywhere from 1-3 weeks depending on individual’s needs, includes a thorough assessment by Coastal’s medical provider, review of medical history, monitoring of vital signs, medical treatment of withdrawal symptoms in conjunction with weekly clinical counseling sessions. Following the completion of Outpatient Detox, Coastal will provide each client with an aftercare plan that includes referrals to either an intensive or a less intensive outpatient substance abuse counseling program depending on individual patient needs.
Individuals that are addicted to prescription medications or opiates such as heroin, may especially benefit from outpatient detox. Over the course of the past few years, the FDA has approved the use of medications such as Suboxone (Buprenorphine) to help relieve the withdrawal from opiates. These new medical treatment protocols have created the opportunity to safely and effectively detox individuals meeting criteria through an outpatient level of care.
