For those individuals who have developed dependence and tolerance on substances, recovery begins with a medically supervised taper and stabilization. Urban Recovery understands this can be a scary and anxiety-provoking time for many of our clients. We built a safe and secure environment for the stabilization and detoxification process on our premises that includes medical and psychiatric support along with 24-hour nursing.
Our staff of professionals monitor the withdrawal process and our goal is to minimize withdrawal effects with compassionate care that is informed by best practices. Urban Recovery features a 6-bed detoxification unit set apart from our residential floors and monitored by a dedicated nursing station with round-the-clock care.
The Process at Urban Recovery
By meeting with our clinical team, you will undergo a 10-day assessment to receive a diagnosis and develop a customized treatment model. After the 10-day assessment, you can stay with us from 35-90 days where you will see therapists multiple times a week, do individual and group work, therapeutic immersion in one’s own home or at work as well as integrated therapy with family members.
In getting off drugs and medications – such as benzodiazepines, barbiturates, amphetamines, cannabis, cocaine and opioids – we will taper the dosage with medical supervision to ensure a healthier withdrawal period. We will assist you from a medical and psychological standpoint as you slowly get off the drugs. We treat post-acute withdrawal syndrome (PAWS), which can last for up to a year, for symptoms such as irritability, nightmares and hypersensitivity.
Once the substance is out of your system and you begin functioning again, we will address why you used in the first place.
The family can also be involved through educational programming to learn of healthy habits. Family will often talk with our psychiatrists to better understand the addiction disorder and mental health issues you may be facing.
Every person and every family is unique. We take the time to understand the story
