Brazos Opiate Detoxification Program
Detoxification from opiates is the first stage of a new client’s recovery process when arriving at Brazos Recovery Services. At our men's addiction treatment center, we offer a medically supervised detox for new clients to not only ensure the client's safety, but to help him stay as comfortable as possible during the opiate withdrawal process. Our goal is to gradually detox our clients from their opiate or opioid addiction.
At Brazos Recovery Services, we believe proper staff and facility certification is necessary to ensure the highest quality of care for each of our patients. We secure this quality of care by providing CARN certified nurses and having our men's drug addiction rehab complete the intensive CARF accreditation process. According to the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), their opiate detoxification standards that we abide by are provided to:
“Detoxification (detox) services are intended to help the persons served reduce or eliminate their use of illicit drugs while improving their quality of life and functioning. Opioid treatment programs follow rehabilitation stages of sufficient duration to meet the needs of the persons served. These stages include initial treatment of zero to seven days in duration, early stabilization lasting up to eight weeks, long-term treatment, medically-supervised withdrawal, detoxification, medical maintenance, and immediate emergency treatment when needed.” (CARF International Opioid Program Descriptions, 2017, p. 2)
This CARF accreditation and our team of licensed medical staff will allow your loved to safely withdrawal from his opiate addiction. The CARN nursing staff, board certified physicians, and master level clinicians at Brazos Recovery Services will properly treat each patient from opiate abuse by tailoring an individualized treatment plan tailored for your loved one’s opioid detoxification needs.
Psychological withdrawal symptoms and cravings for opiates may continue longer than a week. Residential Treatment and psychological support provided by our master level clinicians will become a vital process to help decrease your loved one's withdrawal symptoms and promote long-term recovery.
