Admissions Process – Drug & Alcohol Treatment
The admissions process begins with a confidential phone call to one of our Professional Counselors at Spirit Lodge. We gather information about each Guest’s medical, psychological and substance abuse history and discuss the current challenges they are dealing with. If medical detoxification is warranted based on our initial assessment, clients are referred to an appropriate detoxification facility where they will be treated by a medical staff using medications to ease withdrawal symptoms. Financial arrangements, dates of availability and other pertinent information are also covered during the initial phone consultation.
A referral from a psychiatrist, therapist or other medical practitioner is not required but we welcome their input and strive to maintain open communication with outpatient providers during the admissions process and inpatient stay.
Upon arrival at Spirit Lodge, our treatment team conducts an initial comprehensive assessment to identify each Guest’s current stage of recovery. From information and insight gathered during this assessment, an individualized treatment plan is developed and primary treatment begins.
Recovery from chemical dependence requires a commitment from everyone involved to accept and fully participate in the treatment process and to encourage the participation of family members and significant others.
