Opiate Addiction Detoxification Program
The Ridge Opiate Addiction Detoxification Program
The Ridge Opiate Addiction Detoxification (ROAD) program is designed to address the needs of individuals struggling with the use of heroin and other opiates. We provide medication-assisted treatment to promote
recovery with benefits that can include:
- Less discomfort during withdrawal
- Reduced cravings
- Better results following treatment
- Successful abstinence from drugs
Our inpatient, medically supervised detoxification program can help patients stay safe and comfortable as they start on the road to recovery with the help of physicians, nurses and clinicians specialized in addiction medicine. Prescribed medications, including Suboxone®, can help manage withdrawal symptoms and prevent relapse.
While the detoxification process may be short, it is often the most critical phase of recovery. We help patients regain their physical health before they begin treatment. Patients work with a case manager to develop a discharge plan before they leave our program. The average length of stay is five days.
Patients Can Benefit From:
- A complete history and physical upon admission
- 24-hour/7-day-a-week nursing care
- Onsite, comprehensive psychiatric care
- Recovery-based group therapy
- Introduction to 12-step support groups
- Family education and support
- Individual discharge planning
Physicians, hospital/emergency room social workers, counselors, other healthcare professionals or family members may refer patients. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The Next Step:
After detoxification, patients receive a personalized continuing care plan. Recommendations can include:
- Inpatient rehabilitation
- Partial Hospitalization Program with or without our Sober Living component
- Intensive Outpatient Program
- Outpatient Counseling
- Outpatient medication-assisted treatment
Fees and Insurance:
Patient stays can vary. The Ridge Behavioral Health has contracts with Medicare and most major insurance carriers, as well as private-pay. Patients and their families can meet with one of our experienced financial counselors to help with payment options. We encourage patients and/or families to contact their insurance company prior to admission.
