Sober House

The goal of this program is to provide a safe, non-medically managed and supervised withdrawal from alcohol and other drugs while preparing the person served for counseling to address his or her addiction. Social detoxification is provided in the residential treatment setting for those clients experiencing withdrawal symptoms. These clients do not require hospitalization to manage their symptoms, but do require structured 24-hour supervision and appropriate medical/clinical intervention. Medications, as approved by the Clients physician of record, may be used, and, as with all medications, that are individually prescribed. These clients are mainstreamed into standard residential therapy activities when deemed appropriate. The average length of stay for social detoxification is 23 hours and is considered a temporary bridge to additional services in conjunction with the area Hospitals and Medical Centers.
