Caron's Inpatient Detox Treatment

The first step in detox treatment at Caron’s medical centers is determining whether a patient would benefit from medical detox (and potentially the use of supplemental medications, such as those used to control cravings). Comprehensive assessments include blood and urine screenings, medical history, psychological assessments, and other testing as needed.

The detox process takes place at one of Caron’s state-of-the-art, on-campus medical centers, The Keele Center in Florida or the Neag Center in Pennsylvania. Full-time, on-site expert clinicians, physicians (most of whom are double board certified), nurse practitioners, and nurses as well as clinical case managers provide 24-hour care and supervision. They continuously evaluate each patient’s withdrawal symptoms and their physical and mental health, prescribing withdrawal medications as clinically indicated so that patients stay comfortable.

The experienced staff teams are proficient at managing the medical complexities of detoxing from alcohol and drug use as well as related conditions like chronic pain, diabetes, heart disease, and other co-occurring disorders. If more specialized care is needed, the patient may be referred to trusted outside providers who have experience working with patients with substance use disorder.

Use of Anti-Craving Medications

Recent research indicates that a medication-assisted treatment program that utilizes anti-craving medication can form a more holistic approach to treatment. For those patients who need it, anti-craving medication typically works by:

  • Reducing the feelings of craving drugs.
  • Inhibiting the pleasure induced by drugs.
  • Causing severe physical reactions, making the consumption of drugs a negative experience.

What Detox Medications Does Caron Use?

The comprehensive assessment every Caron patient undergoes determines if they would benefit from medical detox, as well as the use of supplemental medication like those used to control cravings. Caron uses all psychiatric medications conservatively, including anti-craving drugs. Medical staff and addiction specialists work together to make a careful diagnosis, ensuring that all prescriptions are medically justified.
