Dual Addiction Treatment Elements

The road to substance abuse recovery can be different for every individual. Family history, support networks, the degree of intensity of addiction….these elements and more combine to make each sufferer’s experience unique. To meet our clients’ needs where they are currently in terms of the substance abuse spectrum and the fallout from that addiction, Talbott Recovery offers an array of services and levels of care to help our patients escape addiction and move forward healthily with their lives. Each level of care addresses the needs of our patients during different times in their substance abuse recovery. We stage the intensity of treatment based upon the levels described by the American Society of Addiction Medicine Patient Placement Criteria, Version II, Revised. Below are details on the various elements Talbott Recovery incorporates into each of our client’s treatment plans for the successful recovery from substance abuse and co-occurring psychiatric disorders.

Detoxification & Stabilization

For some clients in our substance abuse recovery programs, stabilization is available for those requiring detoxification and/or behavioral containment to interrupt the downhill spiral of their addiction.

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP with Recovery Residences)

Following detox and stabilization, substance abuse recovery patients are transitioned to the Campus Phase of treatment. This Phase of treatment provides an introduction to the Basic Skills of Recovery. Frequently, we recommend our traditional Mirror Image Phase of treatment. This is usually recommended for individuals who have co-occurring psychiatric conditions, personality related issues, grief, trauma, partner relationship issues, family of origin concerns, sexual or other behavioral processes, licensing and professional concerns, or legal issues.

Patient Assessments

Each patient undergoes a thorough evaluation if they have not obtained an evaluation previously. If clinically indicated, prior to admission of professionals program patients a 72-Hour Assessment may be recommended to help facilitate decision making by prospective patients, family members and referents. The evaluation assesses the patient’s physical, psychiatric, psychological, social, spiritual, and family needs to determine the most appropriate level of care. The multi-disciplinary assessment team includes:

  • Attending Physician
  • Psychiatrist
  • Clinical Psychologist
  • Internal Medicine Specialist
  • Addiction Medicine Specialist
  • Assessment Coordinator

The team may also include a pain specialist, a neurologist, a behavioral medicine specialist or a sexual boundaries specialist as needed. A fourth day may be required for any additional evaluations that may be necessary.

Each Assessment includes:

  • Internal medicine evaluation / physical exam
