Levels of Care
The Recovery Village Cherry Hill at Cooper’s integrated team of medical professionals, clinicians and staff use an intake assessment to design a treatment plan around each client’s needs. Treatment often begins with medical detox, then transition to different step-down programs as the client progresses through stages of recovery. Below is a list of our planned levels of care to be offered when our doors open in the summer of 2020…
Patients entering recovery generally start with medical detox
, in which drugs or alcohol safely leave the body under 24-hour supervision. The type of substance used and duration will affect how long medical detox lasts. The medical staff works diligently to make this process as comfortable as possible, including medication when appropriate.
Sometimes referred to as residential treatment, patients in an inpatient treatment program stay at the facility for around-the-clock medical care, counseling, therapy and an array of therapeutic activities. Patients work on the underlying causes of their addiction with therapists and peers to prepare for life in recovery.
A partial hospitalization program (PHP) offers a little more freedom and flexibility than a full residential treatment program. Clients in partial hospitalization normally meet for treatment and therapy sessions during the day and return home at night. Before acceptance into a PHP, patients have typically finished the detox process.
Intensive outpatient programming requires fewer hours of recovery programming per day and gives patients the chance to practice coping outside the facility. Medication, support groups and counseling remain part of the treatment plan as the patient begins to transition to normal life.
When ready, individuals may transition into outpatient programming. Access to counseling and support continues, but with fewer hours and more privacy. For individuals who would prefer a more structured environment while transitioning from rehab back to daily life, sober living communities are a supportive environment where they can apply their new recovery skills.
Lifelong recovery continues with an aftercare plan. Before completing treatment, addiction specialists equip clients with detailed plans and tools to address barriers and prevent relapse. They may also help you find local providers, support groups or sober housing.
The Weekly Recovery Compass program is part of the customized treatment plan created for each patient at our facility. The program helps identify and address potential setbacks in real-time by monitoring symptoms like depression, anxiety levels, sleep quality and substance cravings.
