Drug & Alcohol Detox in San Diego
Long-Term Recovery Starts with an Effective and Compassionate Detoxification
The physiological and emotional symptoms of withdrawal are real. Our compassionate staff provides 24/7 supervision to ensure the transition into abstinence is medically appropriate, safe, and secure to prepare for the next stage of the individual’s treatment plan.
Our treatment team oversees the Doctor’s protocol while supporting client comfort throughout their plan. Our Medical Director leads the team by prescribing medications, monitoring progress, and managing a personalized treatment regimen. This way, the treatment is holistic and truly supportive in nature.
Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) During Detox and Residential Treatment
Our team utilizes FDA approved medications such as Suboxone, Sublocade, Vivitrol and Subutex (all brand names for buprenorphine and/or naltrexone) to assist in recovery, including medications to help soothe cravings and facilitate pain management.
Our Medical Director will continue existing therapies (where appropriate) or prescribe MAT medications like these. Then, our clinical team will monitor the effectiveness of the medication from a therapeutic perspective and make the appropriate recommendations as the continuum of care unfolds. Studies show that MAT, when coupled with counseling, greatly increases one’ ability to attain long term sobriety.
Providing Maximum Comfort Through IMS
Present Moments Recovery is Licensed by the State of California Department of Health Care Services to provide Incidental Medical Services (IMS). Therefore, our staff can manage intravenous and oral medications and the entire spectrum of medication treatment methods for withdrawal symptoms. These treatments are provided and monitored by qualified medical staff on site. Present Moments Recovery admits clients 24 hours a day and seven days a week.
What is IMS?
On January 1, 2016, legislation authorized Substance Use Disorder treatment facilities licensed by the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) to provide incidental medical services (IMS). IMS allows a health care practitioner, or staff under the supervision of a health care practitioner, to address medical issues associated with detoxification, treatment, or recovery services.
Why is this Important?
The acute pain of withdrawal as measured by C.O.W.S. (clinical opiate withdrawal scale) is the greatest barrier to detoxification and rehabilitation for you or your family member. While most inpatient and outpatient facilities have protocols in place, many who suffer from this acute and painful time need access to new, safe, non-narcotic options in pain management.
DHCS has authorized Present Moments Recovery to allow a licensed physician or other health care practitioner to provide incidental medical services (IMS) to a patient of the facility on the facility premises thus improving the level of care and efficacy of our program.
