How Many Days is the Treatment Program?
Two days. Why? During these 48 hours, the patient is at greatest risk for complications once discontinuing alcohol occurs in the absence of counteracting and neuro-protective drugs. Therefore,
- DAY 1(FRI – Arrival)- is devoted to taking an extensive history, undergoing a thorough physical examination, diagnostic testing, blood work, dispensing of alcohol deterrent and seizure preventing medications, and IV replenishment therapy consisting of essential vitamins and minerals necessary to help prevent severe neurologic and cardiovascular complications caused by alcoholic-related malnourishment.
- DAY 2(SAT – Detox, Recovery) – you will be admitted to your private room for roughly 6 hours where you will have your alcohol detox procedure followed by additional monitoring, rest, further hydration and vital element replenishment, and discharge planning to your private hotel room where your physician and care team will remain until your discharge the next day.
- DAY 3(SUN – Aftercare, Discharge Planning) – a post-detox consultation will be conducted first thing in Sunday morning with your treating physician. During this time, most clients are comfortable and safe enough to travel with their companion, if you have come from afar, or return home with a responsible adult, if you reside locally. We will maintain close communication and continue receiving instructions while on your treatment regimen.
During your stay, we observe and monitor for any harmful alcohol withdrawal syndrome [e.g. seizures and cardiovascular arrhythmia] while continually optimizing your condition.
