Outpatient Detox Treatment
Outpatient detox, therapy, and medication-assisted treatment (MAT)
Outpatient detox treatment provides the support individuals need to safely and comfortably undergo detox without staying overnight at a facility. Outpatient detox or ambulatory withdrawal management is provided at our Sanford Outpatient Center under the direction of a licensed physician for those in PHP or IOP addiction treatment. Outpatient detox is for individuals who are either intoxicated or withdrawing from alcohol or other substances which do not have acute withdrawal symptoms or require residential treatment.
Outpatient monitoring occurs together with outpatient therapy and medication-assisted treatment (MAT). All patients are assessed to make sure they are not experiencing medical or neurological symptoms because of their substance use that would require a higher level of care. Sanford Behavioral Health's outpatient detox program in Marne, Michigan, offers individualized treatment plans to meet each patient's unique needs. Treatment may include medication management, education on addiction, therapy sessions, and relapse prevention planning. To learn more about our detox treatment programs, call us at 616.202.3326. We are here to support you in your recovery.
What is Outpatient Detox?
Outpatient detox allows individuals to receive support and medical care for their substance use without staying overnight in a facility. This type of treatment is often recommended for individuals who are not experiencing severe withdrawal symptoms or who do not require residential treatment. At Sanford Behavioral Health, our outpatient detox services occur Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm during hours of operation at our Sanford Outpatient Center. These services include, but are not limited to:
- Oral intake of fluids
- Food, if indicated
- The taking of vital signs
- Documentation of fluid and food intake
- Medication management
- Therapy sessions
- Education on addiction
- Relapse prevention planning
Patients actively using cocaine, marijuana, and amphetamines do not require withdrawal management services. However, we refer these patients to our outpatient center for addiction treatment. These patients could also be eligible for residential services at Sanford House at John Street for men, Cherry Street for women, or Sanford West SUD.
Why Choose Sanford Behavioral Health for Outpatient Detox?
Outpatient detox services are performed in a safe, welcoming, trauma-informed, culturally and age-appropriate environment. Our outpatient center focuses on creating and providing an uplifting space with a group of passionate clinical therapists and medical staff. Intensive outpatient and outpatient groups, the family program, and individual and family therapy are conducted in person and via telehealth at our outpatient center. In addition, we address post-acute withdrawal symptoms at every stage and therapeutic modality.
Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is also available for individuals who require it. MAT combines behavioral therapy and medications to treat substance use disorders. This type of treatment is effective in reducing the use of opioid drugs and alcohol.
Our Outpatient Detox Team
A licensed physician supervising withdrawal management is on-site or on-call during the hours of operation at the outpatient center. Staff members are trained and knowledgeable in the following:
- The physical signs of withdrawal
- Taking vital signs
- The implication of the vital signs
- Emergency procedures
Our statutory approved personnel administer medications according to our physician's orders, always under the supervision of a registered nurse (RN) or licensed practical nurse (LPN). All our staff members know Sanford-required education, evidence-based practices, training, and policies. We assess every patient’s medical condition and history before admission to our program. We also develop a personalized case management plan for each individual so they know what to do after discharge.
Receive Continuum of Care with Sanford Behavioral Health
At Sanford Behavioral Health, we create a consistent system of treatment that guides and tracks our patients through all levels of medical detox and treatment intensity. Our goal is to determine a clinically appropriate placement for everyone in the least restrictive level of care. However, we recognize the importance of a long-term continuum of treatment programs, classes, and resources.
Successful treatment of substance use disorders requires continual evaluation and adjustments. Therefore, we work directly with our patients to transition them into a safe environment after residential treatment.
