Treatment Options

Medically Monitored Detoxification

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

Our qualified professional staff is culturally competent and consists of a medical director, program director, registered nurses, counselors, and substance abuse technicians—all working toward the goal of helping our clients overcome addictions.

A Continuum of Care

Aftercare Planning is the other essential part of the detoxification experience. Participants receive help from the time they enter the program in connecting with services to achieve their post-detox goals. After the process, 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.

The Process

For some individuals home-based detoxification is not possible; others are more comfortable being out of their environment. Symptoms of withdrawal may include: blood pressure and heart rate elevations, anxiety, emotional instability, nausea, sweating, tremors, vomiting, insomnia, depression, and seizures. We detox with a variety of medications, including: librium and methadone and help people detox from the following substances:

  • Alcohol
  • Narcotics and Opiates including:
    • heroin
    • morphine
    • codeine
    • percocet
    • oxycontin
