Why Our Inpatient Rehab is Staffed with Nurses 24/7
Drug & alcohol addiction can cause many addicts to live in poor physical health for a long time. To ensure proper medical support during the treatment process, our inpatient rehab is staffed with nurses 24 hours a day. Upon admission, a nursing assessment gathers medical history and ensures clients are medically stable for participation in residential treatment. Clients also receive a medical examination by a physician or nurse practitioner within 72 hours of admission. Nursing staff supervise medication and attend to physical health concerns as they arise, under the direction of our medical director. With 24/7 staffing, our nurses can better monitor vital signs, blood sugar levels, sleep patterns, and more. This means medical issues are better managed and can be addressed quickly.
Our Medical Director is specialized in the field of Addiction Medicine. He works closely with our treatment team to ensure each client receives the medical support they need to be successful during their inpatient rehab stay.
A psychiatric evaluation is also completed to determine if a mental health disorder may be contributing to the substance abuse problem. Many times, people who come to inpatient rehab for addiction also suffer from other conditions, such as anxiety or depression. When a dual-diagnosis occurs, both conditions should be treated at the same time. Our medical, psychiatric, and counseling staff are qualified to do this. Learn more about how Integrated Inpatient Rehab Treatment produces better outcomes for clients suffering from dual-diagnosis.
