Drug and Alcohol Detox

If necessary, the first step is detoxification. We offer medically supervised detox through our inpatient programs for drugs and alcohol.  During your initial appointment, we will discuss if you require safe, medically supervised inpatient or outpatient detox. Medical complications, length of use, and frequency of use are all factors that will be considered by our intake specialists.

Alcohol Detox

Chronic, excessive drinking can lead to physiological tolerance and dependence on alcohol. When this dependency exists, a person will need medically supervised detoxification to safely stop drinking or serious and even life-threatening conditions can occur. Seizures, delirium tremens (DTs), or death are all possible if alcohol withdrawal is not medically managed.

Detoxing from Alcohol – Withdrawal Symptoms

The abrupt cessation of alcohol can precipitate serious and sometimes dangerous withdrawal symptoms.[link to alcohol info page] Because your body has become dependent on these substances to function, in their absence it lacks the ability to function normally, In time your body will adjust, the withdrawal symptoms will abate, and the body will return to normal.

Unfortunately, people who are suffering from alcohol addiction often do not realize just how strong their bodies and minds have become dependent until they attempt to cut back or quit drinking. There is another way to end the destructive hold of alcohol and start anew.

Detoxification is the process of safely withdrawing your body from a substance with the aid of medications and other techniques that lessen the uncomfortable symptoms and reduce cravings.

After a successful detox, a client can move towards maintaining long-term sobriety and recovery through continued treatment in our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). After a short-term detox, we recommend Vivitrol for many of our clients. Vivitrol is an extremely effective medication that lasts for 28 days and helps block further cravings for alcohol.

You may be wondering if you need detox? Before you decide you can stop on your own, call to schedule an assessment with us and a medical professional will determine a safe and effective detox plan for you. Our innovative detox protocols for both alcohol and drug addiction minimize the discomfort of withdrawal, reduce cravings, and help prevent relapse.

Detoxing From Opioids – Withdrawal Symptoms

Opioids in any form are very effective at relieving pain. As the body becomes dependent on the opioid, it slowly loses the ability to create its own opioids. When you stop taking the opioid your body is left in a state in which it cannot naturally mask pain – thus the pain of withdrawal. Our medically approved detox protocol is designed to lessen the pain associated with opioid withdrawal.

Early symptoms of withdrawal include:
  • Agitation
  • Anxiety
  • Muscle aches
  • Increased tearing
  • Insomnia
  • Runny nose
  • Sweating
  • Yawning
Late symptoms of withdrawal include:
  • Abdominal cramping
  • Diarrhea
  • Dilated pupils
  • Goosebumps
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting

Intensive Outpatient Program

Few of us can put our life on hold while recovering from addiction. The intensive outpatient program (IOP) at Turning Point Recovery provides safe, effective, comprehensive treatment scheduled so as not to interfere with your career, family responsibilities, and important life commitments. Our IOP utilizes both group and individual counseling helping clients establish and maintain recovery from addictions. Our multi-dimensional program also teaches 12-step principles and addresses our client’s physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being. Clients learn practical recovery skills that can be implemented in their lives immediately.

Our IOP provides the education, support, and accountability necessary to sustain meaningful long-lasting recovery. Our clients are able to remain in their home environment and continue with work, school, or family obligations while practicing new recovery behaviors in a familiar context.

Turning Point Recovery is pleased to receive Behavioral Health Care Accreditation from The Joint Commission, the premier health care quality improvement and accrediting body in the nation.

Turning Point’s Recovery House is a great option for those looking to build a solid foundation for their recovery in a real-world environment. Our Recovery house provides residents the opportunity to be fully engaged in their lives while providing a safe, healthy, and substance-free living environment.

A live-in house manager and full-time peer mentor ensures a healthy, structured, sober environment and serves as a recovery resource for each resident. Staying clean and sober while building a new life of recovery can be challenging. Being able to live with like-minded individuals who share a commitment to sobriety provides our residents with the camaraderie and mutual support that is crucial for long-term recovery.

During their stay, residents have the ability to continue their recovery through Turning Point’s Intensive Outpatient Program and can take advantage of other local resources, including AA and NA meetings. Each person’s journey is unique, and at Turning Point Recovery House, we work with each individual to create a sober living plan that meets their needs and provides the best chance for long-term health and sobriety.

Due to the over-reliance on opioid pain medications to treat chronic pain, there is an epidemic of opioid addiction in this country. We are sensitive to the challenges and potential barriers to chronic pain. Everyone receiving treatment with us will be assessed and given additional treatment options to meet their needs. Options may include non-opiate pain medications, progressive relaxation therapy and acupuncture, as well as education on diet and exercise. All of these solutions are medically proven to reduce chronic pain. We can work with your primary care doctor and pain specialists in order to develop a coordinated system of care and recovery. For many of our former clients in recovery, active lives without symptoms of chronic pain are possible.
