INPATIENT DETOXIFICATION PROGRAM

First Step Detox is one of many programs offered within the Recovery Network of Programs continuum of care. This medically monitored residential detoxification unit is for individuals struggling with addiction. We welcome males and females, age 18 and over with a substance dependence disorder, that need detox from alcohol, opiate and/or benzodiazepines. Clinical staff is trained in the implementation of best practices using evidence-based treatment approaches including motivational interviewing, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and medical interventions tailored to each individual’s needs. Our highly structured clinical and medically monitored detox program includes:

Individual Counseling
Group Therapy
Case Management
Referral Services for Continuing Care
Medical Management

HIV/AIDS SERVICES (SPECIAL POPULATION)

We offer intensive service for persons living with HIV, AIDS, and psychiatric issues. Individual therapy sessions focus on comprehensive assessment, treatment planning and achievement of goals. Family involvement is strongly encouraged. In addition, all clients will be provided with educational groups and resource information.

Case management assists individuals with a variety of needs by facilitating connections to community providers. Our Special Populations Department will come on-site to assist clients with HIV/AIDS diagnosis. This Program offers a variety of services including case management, transportation and referrals for medical services, and housing. The highly trained medical staff of RNP will ensure that all clients are assessed individually and administered medications to ensure a safe and comfortable detoxification. Recognizing that it is often difficult for an individual to achieve recovery in isolation, introduction to self-help groups and community resources are a vital part of the program. Since inpatient detoxification treatment is designed to assist clients to stabilize, aftercare planning begins at the time of admission. Referrals are made to a variety of substance abuse facilities including residential, intensive outpatient, outpatient medication assisted treatment and mental health services.
