Adult Chemical Dependency Inpatient Treatment Program in New Baltimore, MI

This program provides 24/7 treatment for adults struggling with addiction. If you or a loved one needs to detox from a substance, or is ready to begin treatment for addiction concerns, we can help.

Step 1: Medical Detoxification

An advantageous element of this innovative treatment program is the inclusion of medically-monitored detoxification services. These detox services are available as a first line of defense for those who require medical intervention during the withdrawal process due to the presence of a severe addiction to substances. Physicians, nurses, and other medical personnel supervise the health of each patient so as to minimize the risks involved with withdrawal.

Step 2: Inpatient Addiction Treatment

Once detox is complete, or if an individual does not require these services, they begin treatment in our inpatient chemical dependency program. Inpatient treatment provides 24/7 supervision, and it is our most acute level of care. There are several treatment methods that patients will engage in during their time in this program. These methods include:

  • A wide array of groups geared towards providing education and support
  • Once-per-week individual sessions
  • Daily meetings with an addictions specialist
  • Family education opportunities, which are held on Saturdays and Sundays
  • Family therapy on an as-needed basis
  • Medication management services with a psychiatrist
  • Activity therapies, including pet therapy
  • Thorough discharge planning

This program incorporates The Hazelden Curriculum, 12-step model for recovery, and motivational interviewing within the services provided, and the compassionate staff is well-trained in administering care that has been proven effective for countless adults.

Step 3: Discharge & Continuing Care Planning
