Ensuring your safety is our imperative. Upon arrival at Greenhouse, following a comprehensive medical and mental health assessment, we’ll determine if you need to go through a detox period. If you require detox, you’ll be medically monitored by our licensed team 24/7 to manage your withdrawal symptoms safely. Our skilled medical team is knowledgeable about the nuances of different drug withdrawal symptoms uses tailored detox methods and tapering protocols to safely rid the body of toxic substances. Although everyone’s progress is different, detox lasts approximately 5-7 days.
Factors influencing the withdrawal experience:
- Substance used, amount, and frequency
- Tolerance level for substance
- Addiction severity, progression, and history
- Co-occurring conditions
- Ongoing health issues and general physical condition
Greenhouse’s designated detox rooms are in close proximity to nursing stations for round-the-clock monitoring with easy access to medical staff. Additionally, in consideration of our clients during the peak days of withdrawal, these rooms are located in a quiet, private section of the residential area.
Co-Occurring Disorders Approach
If you or your loved one are among the many people who struggle with both addiction and a co-occurring psychiatric disorder such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, or bipolar disorder. Greenhouse programs provide integrated treatment that simultaneously addresses both issues. You will actively work with our clinical team trained in dual diagnosis to help your develop new behaviors and coping skills to manage not only your substance use but the symptoms of your behavioral health issues that may lead to relapse
Curriculum for Change
Embracing Change: Recovery for Life is an interactive series of exercises that focuses on the treatment of addiction and co-occurring disorders. We developed this program using research-based practices, self-reflection, and cognitive exercises that help our clients learn to recognize and regulate their emotions in response to triggers to drink or use drugs.
We consider this curriculum to be a primary strength and differentiator for our treatment program. Our curriculum workbooks engages you or your loved one with journaling exercises, ideas for growth through self-examination, aftercare coping strategies, addiction information, and 12-step philosophies. Rather than receiving general information on recovery topics, you are invited to work through the program using the richness of their unique experiences to the recovery journey.
We encourage you to keep and review your completed curriculum workbooks for personal reflection and as part of your long-term recovery process that continues beyond treatment.
Length of Program Stay
Every client’s length of stay at Greenhouse varies depending on their clinical needs. Your program stay will be determined according to your unique set of circumstances including your progress while in treatment, ability to manage co-occurring conditions, need for support services following program completion, and insurance coverage.
National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) research has demonstrated that long-term recovery is related to length of treatment. In terms of continued long-term sobriety, the most effective treatment length is the 90-day program.
