Reducing Relapse with Detoxing

First Step Recovery Center offers drug detox and alcohol detox services in an outpatient rehab program that allows patients to remain in their own homes at night. Addiction treatment medications such as Suboxone and buprenorphine are used for smoothing out unpleasant physical withdrawal symptoms, and also to prevent cravings and relapse over the longer term of treatment and during taper-off. Other medications, such as Vivitrol or naltrexone, can then be provided for craving and relapse reduction.

However, our treatment center does not offer methadone or long-term opiate-based maintenance treatment with Suboxone or buprenorphine. That approach could be appropriate for some individuals in Hesperia, Barstow, or other areas who have had multiple relapses or for whatever reason are not physically or mentally capable of embracing abstinence, but we do not offer that service here. We can, however, direct clients requiring that treatment to other appropriate sites, and we are also very capable of providing methadone and other prescription opiate detox for clients who want it.

[su_note note_color=”#F0F0F0″]If the First Step Recovery Center medical team diagnoses the need for medication-assisted detox and withdrawal management, they may recommend or prescribe medications for that purpose, after first clearing the patient medically, and then determining if they are appropriate clients for an outpatient detox protocol. After that evaluation, if a particular client is determined to require inpatient hospitalization or a residential detox setting, we will then assist in making those alternate arrangements. After the inpatient detox is done, they may return to join our outpatient drug treatment programs.[/su_note]

All clients undergoing detox will be carefully monitored, and we will supervise and monitor the administration of each patient’s prescribed medications in Victorville and surrounding areas. After the initial induction phase is complete, we encourage our clients to designate a responsible support person to hold, dispense, and safely and securely store their detox medications after they are both fully instructed and trained by our staff.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_widget_sidebar show_bg=”false” sidebar_id=”sidebar_1″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][dt_testimonials type=”slider” autoslide=”6000″ number=”6″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”vc_default” full_width=”stretch_row” equal_height=”yes” content_placement=”middle” seperator_indeed_locker=”” lk_t=”ism_template_1″ lk_tl=”5″ lk_io=”default” lk_lp=”0″ lk_dm=”0″ lk_thm=”0″ lk_tuo=”0″ ru_on=”0″ uhc_on=”0″ ur_on=”0″ ref_on=”0″ css=”.vc_custom_1473599298140{padding-top: 10px !important;padding-bottom: 40px !important;background-color: #0d404f !important;}”][vc_column offset=”vc_col-lg-8 vc_col-md-8 vc_col-xs-12″][ultimate_heading main_heading=”Need Help?” main_heading_color=”#ffffff” sub_heading_color=”#ffffff” alignment=”left” main_heading_margin=”margin-bottom:10px;” main_heading_font_size=”desktop:30px;” main_heading_line_height=”desktop:40px;” sub_heading_font_size=”desktop:17px;” sub_heading_line_height=”desktop:27px;”]Our Caring Staff Can Help You Take the First Step[/ultimate_heading][/vc_column][vc_column offset=”vc_col-lg-4 vc_col-md-4 vc_hidden-sm vc_col-xs-12 vc_hidden-xs”][ult_buttons btn_title=”Schedule a Consultation” btn_link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Ffirststephd.com%2Fschedule-a-consultation%2F|||” btn_align=”ubtn-right” btn_size=”ubtn-custom” btn_height=”38″ btn_padding_left=”25″ btn_padding_top=”15″ btn_title_color=”#ffffff” btn_bg_color=”rgba(255,255,255,0.01)” btn_hover=”ubtn-fade-bg” btn_bg_color_hover=”#ffffff” btn_title_color_hover=”#28a7fb” icon_size=”32″ btn_icon_pos=”ubtn-sep-icon-at-left” btn_border_style=”solid” btn_color_border=”rgba(255,255,255,0.4)” btn_color_border_hover=”#ffffff” btn_border_size=”4″ btn_radius=”0″ btn_font_family=”font_family:Montserrat|font_call:Montserrat|variant:700″ btn_font_style=”font-weight:700;” btn_font_size=”desktop:20px;” btn_line_height=”desktop:20px;” css_adv_btn=”.vc_custom_1473598607507{margin-bottom: 0px !important;padding-bottom: 0px !important;}”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
