Inpatient Medical Detox
Inpatient medical detox is the first level of care in the treatment process. During this time you will be given the latest in detox medications so you will have little or no withdrawal symptoms. You will be monitored 24 hours a day by doctors and nurses until you are stable. Once fully detoxed you will then move on to the inpatient rehab level of care.
Lakeview Health is a safe, secure and confidential drug rehab center. Our highly trained and experienced staff of doctors, nurses and master’s-level therapists understands the relationship between the psychological and physiological effects of drug and alcohol abuse. They also work together to allow us to deliver a multidisciplinary approach to detoxification and addiction treatment.
To completely address all aspects of addiction, a recognized disease of the brain and body, requires time, consistency, structure and support. Inpatient medical detox is the first level of care in addiction treatment. Addicts who enter inpatient medical detox are considered patients, as they are being medically monitored on a daily basis in a hospital setting. A comprehensive inpatient treatment center can build the foundation for recovery after detox is complete.
Inpatient detox addresses medical components and stabilization including:
- Doctor assessment and regular monitoring
- Regular taking and monitoring of vital signs
- Daily giving of detox medications on a taper
- Introduction to relapse prevention
- Aftercare recommendations to decrease risk of relapse
Those addicts who have underlying mental health issues or a physical condition which needs to be stabilized may enter inpatient drug rehab before going to a residential treatment center.
