Detoxification/Residential Program Description
Detox is recommended for those who need residential and detoxification services to maintain abstinence from chemical dependency. The detoxification program operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, on a residential basis.
Our detox program provides a comprehensive initial screening assessment, which is conducted to determine whether further evaluation or review is needed. We initially screen for alcohol and other drug use, depression, traumatic experiences, anxiety, excessive worries/stress, self-harm, hyperactivity, psychotic symptoms, eating disorders, nutritional health, educational needs, pain, and conduct disorders. Once the initial screening is conducted, a comprehensive assessment is then completed on the problem areas identified in the initial screening assessment. All clients will meet the assessment and admission criteria for residential and detoxification treatment for chemical dependency. Our program is a highly effective integrative treatment model focusing on the whole person and the family system.
La Jolla Recovery detox programs guide clients through all stages of treatment and recovery. Our comprehensive continuum of treatment services ensures that clients receive the appropriate level of care based on their specific needs while assisting them in attaining healthy and productive lives free of the negative influences and consequences of substance use and dependence. Our goal is to integrate the client’s individual needs within our varied program structures.
Depending on the type and severity of drugs or alcohol, our detoxification program will typically last from 7 to 10 days. We anticipate our residential program, after the detoxification phase, will last from 30 – 60 days of treatment.
