Detox and Evaluation

The Detoxification Process is the first important step in the treatment of an addiction to alcohol and/or other substances. Symptoms of withdrawal may include blood pressure and heart rate elevations, anxiety, emotional instability, nausea, sweating, tremors, vomiting, insomnia, depression, and seizures.

Your counselor along with our medical staff will decide on the specific course of detoxification.

Sometimes it is not possible, due to life circumstances or the need for medical monitoring/treatment, to do home based detoxification. For some individuals home-based detoxification is not possible; others are just more comfortable being out of their current environment in order to take this step.

Our detox program is a place to receive medical attention, and professional treatment services, in a comfortable, caring and supportive environment that may make for a more successful detoxification.

We help people detox from the following substances:

  • alcohol
  • narcotics and opiates including:
    •  heroin
    • morphine
    • codeine
    • percocet
    • oxycontin
    • vicodin
    • dilaudid
    • anti-anxiety drugs.

We detox with a variety of medications, including:

  • librium
  • methadone

MCCA provides a medically monitored, caring and friendly home-like atmosphere to help people safely and effectively detoxify from alcohol and/or other drugs. Each person admitted to the Detox Program receives a medical and clinical evaluation, followed by medication administration to help them detox in a safe, comfortable way. A structured program consisting of educational groups, 12 step meetings and individual counseling sessions is also part of the process.

Aftercare Planning is the other essential part of the detoxification experience. Detoxification is the first step on the road to recovery. Participants receive help from the time they enter the program in defining and connecting with services to achieve their goals for the time beyond their stay here. Once the detoxification process is complete, we continue to provide treatment within other MCCA programs and/or arrange for other treatment services, as necessary, based upon the individual client’s needs.

MCCA offers clients a continuum of care

  • Detoxification and Evaluation, including the use of Methadone for opiate detoxification if appropriate
  • Short and Long Term Residential Programs
  • Intensive Outpatient Programs (day & evening)
  • Various Outpatient Programs
  • Relapse Prevention

Our professional staff consists of a Medical Director, Program Director, Registered Nurses, Counselors/Case Managers and Substance Abuse Technicians all working toward the goal of helping our clients overcome addictions, in a very caring, professional and respectful atmosphere.
