Clinical Assessment

Treatment at Hope’s Horizon begins with a full clinical assessment by a state-certified alcohol & drug counselor. During the assessment process, we will gain insight into the biomedical, sociological, and psychological history of the individual seeking treatment for their addiction. Based on the information provided to us during the assessment, our team will provide evaluation and offer the most appropriate level of services, which are aligned with the individual’s presenting needs.

Ambulatory Alcohol & Benzodiazepine Detox:

In many cases, the physical withdrawal symptoms experienced by those dependent on alcohol and/or benzodiazepenes require medical intervention and should not be done alone. A person struggling with a dependence on these substances will need a safe, comfortable environment, where their progress can be monitored by an experienced physician. Detoxification from alcohol and benzodiazepenes typically lasts 7 to 21 days.

Following assessment, our staff will establish an individualized medication protocol for the individual in need. Patients admitted to our detox program remain on-site for several hours, so that our trained medical staff can monitor their symptoms and make as-needed adjustments to their medication regimen. In their detoxification process, someone may experience more severe withdrawal symptoms or present with heightened medical concerns. In these rare cases, our team will coordinate a referral to a higher level of care that is based on the presenting needs of the patient.  We value patient welfare in the highest regard.

Ambulatory Opiate Detox

Withdrawal from heroin, prescription pain medication, and other opiate substances can result in a wide range of physical discomfort for opiate-dependent individuals. Upon evaluation by our physician, a patient will engage in an individualized titration schedule best-suited to their needs. To ensure the utmost comfort and safety during this time, our nursing staff will assist our physician in the monitoring of any withdrawal symptoms.
