Withdrawal Management and Detox Unit

Withdrawal Management & Detoxification Unit

The withdrawal management unit consists of medication-assisted treatment (MAT) and medical detoxification services. MAT is specifically designed for guests who are being treated for opioid use and utilizes specialized medications. Medical detoxification services are for guests who require detoxification and treatment for non-opioid-related substances.

This unit contains 16 beds (7 double-occupancy bedrooms and 2 single bedrooms) and an outdoor, enclosed patio. The average length of stay is 3 to 7 days. In this unit, guest treatment includes a robust daily schedule with daily treatment sessions with providers, individual and group therapy sessions, and peer engagement.

The Bridge Center is a Medically Monitored Residential Withdrawal Management facility that provides 24-hour observation, monitoring and treatment delivered by medical and nursing professionals to clients whose withdrawal signs and symptoms are moderate to severe and thus require residential care, but do not need the full resources of an acute care hospital.

Medically monitored inpatient withdrawal management services for adults provide care to patients whose withdrawal signs and symptoms are sufficiently severe to require 24-hour inpatient care. It sometimes is provided as a “step-down” service from a specialty unit of an acute care general or psychiatric hospital. Twenty-four-hour observation, monitoring and treatment are available; however, the full resources of an acute care general hospital or a medically managed intensive inpatient treatment program are not necessary.
