Finding the Right Detoxification and Addiction Help the First Time
Substance abuse treatment and finding the right help the first time is imperative when seeking rehab for drug addiction. There are many alcohol and drug detox facilities throughout Orange County. One thing that separates Experience Recovery from your typical Orange County detox is our IMS designation by the state of California. IMS stands for Incidental Medical Services.
Incidental Medical Services for Detoxification Treatment at Experience Recovery
There are six IMS services that must be provided after receiving approval from the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS).
- Obtaining medical histories
- Monitoring health status
- Testing associated with the detoxification from alcohol or drugs
- Providing alcoholism or drug abuse recovery or treatment services
- Overseeing patient self-administered medications
- Treating substance abuse disorders, including detoxification
Under the guidance of our medical director Dr. Mario San Bartolome, we are able to offer ASAM 3.7 detoxification for someone needing help with drugs or alcohol.
What is ASAM Level 3.7?
According to ASAM 3.7 is
Called the Medically Monitored High-Intensity Inpatient Services for adolescents and Medically Monitored Intensive Inpatient Services Withdrawal Management for adults, this level of care provides 24-hour nursing care with a physician’s availability for significant problems. Patients in this level of care require medication and have a recent history of withdrawal management at a less intensive level of care, marked by past and current inability to complete withdrawal management and enter into continuing addiction treatment.
Adhering to proper protocol and helping each client understand the withdrawal symptoms they will experience while facing detoxification treatment the goal of our team.
Addressing the Opioid Crisis
The opioid crisis has affected the United States and caused the medical field to examine synthetic opioid prescriptions. Orange County California has become a hub for recovery as well as a hotbed for opiate addiction. Local newspapers and national news programs have covered the devastation of addiction with a new light. Families are being torn apart and young and old addicts alike are needing help from the devastation of street drugs as well as prescription drugs. We must also take a look at alcohol and the toll it takes on someone abusing alcohol. Alcohol addiction and alcohol detoxification are not being spoken of as often, but alcohol still remain the number one abused drug in the world.
Helping Men and Women Face Their Addiction
Experience Recovery works with men and women willing to face their addiction. In facing addiction, we get to the core issue by creating an individual plan focusing on lasting recovery. We focus on trauma and recovering from the depths of despair that alcohol and addiction can cause to an individual and their family.
Our clientele come from all over the world to recover. If you are loved one or seeking treatment call Experience Recovery, if we are not the program for you or your loved one, we will help you find the one that is.
