Instant/rapid read alcohol and drug screens are conducted as well as obtaining vital signs. Trained staff monitor detoxification levels using the Clinical Institute Withdrawal Assessment (CIWA) and Clinical Opioid Withdrawal Scale (COWS).
Testing associated with detoxification from alcohol and drugs is necessary. Laboratory testing shall include an assessment of the residents health status. This is to determine the safest course of managing the opiate and alcohol detox process. Testing may include toxicology for drugs and alcohol including urine drug screens, blood alcohol concentrations, and confirmatory laboratory analysis when appropriate. This includes analyses for electrolyte disturbances, nutrition deficiencies, organ dysfunction, and other markers impacted by substance use and the withdrawal process.
We provide alcoholism or drug abuse recovery or treatment services. As a part of ongoing treatment and recovery, laboratory testing may be conducted. This is done to monitor the stabilization of the resident. This is done through the provision of ongoing treatment. Testing may include administering and reviewing TB, HIV, Hepatitis, drug and alcohol testing and other screenings that impact the provision of treatment services.
Our facility oversees resident self-administer medications; Our physician may advise or make recommendations to any resident regarding any prescribed or over the counter medication. During a resident’s initial detoxification and withdrawal, the physician will evaluate and adjust the medications that a resident is prescribed. This is not limited to just those medications provided for management of detoxification and withdrawal. It covers any medication used to assist the resident through the treatment and recovery process.
The physician or health care practitioner may prescribe (order) medications that keep the resident safe and comfortable during detoxification. They will also assist with their treatment.
