Detoxing from substances is extremely dangerous and should be done under medical supervision. Royal Life Centers at Spokane Heights offers care from medical professionals to ensure a safe recovery from substance use disorders. During drug detox, we start the work of recovery with therapy at individual and group levels. Upon arrival at our detox facility, guests are assessed and evaluated for their symptoms of withdrawal, any co-occurring disorders, and current health status.
Guests are appointed to a case manager and primary therapist once admitted into detox. Our case managers will help guests handle any ongoing legal issues, or provide other helpful resources for that specific guest. Case managers work with guests collaboratively to develop an individualized service plan (ISP). This service plan, or treatment plan, is essentially a blueprint of each guest’s plan of recovery. Guests are also assigned to a primary therapist, who will work with each guest individually during the detox process, to uncover the root cause of their substance use disorder. Guests will gain insight into their substance use disorder and learn healthy coping skills, making the recovery process easier.
Drug detox is the very first step of recovery. Royal Life Centers at Spokane Heights can help you each step of the way, beginning with the detox process. We are here to make the detox process easy, pain-free and safe. Because We Care.
