The staff provides close monitoring and ensures the comfort of residents during the withdrawal phase. They have a ratio of 3 staff to 1 resident so they can uniquely to attend to the comfort of their residents during the detox phase. If a client is to be placed on a detoxification procedure, the client is observed very closely for the first 36 hours of treatment and thereafter, residents are observed every 30 minutes throughout a resident’s stay. If ever there’s a medical complication, all staff are trained on emergency protocol that includes 24/7 consultation access to a medical doctor, and they can arrange for a quick transfer to their local emergency room, or acute care hospital if needed.

Alcohol detoxification is typically treated with a benzodiazepine taper such as Librium or Valium as well as “comfort medications” that include medications that aid sleep problems, nausea/vomiting, and anxiety. The detoxification time frame depends upon factors such as other substances of use, length of use, quantity, and frequency, and prior detoxification symptom information. It is dangerous to detox from alcohol without proper medical supervision, and AToN Center collaborates with consulting doctors in order to determine the best treatment plan for each individual.

Heroin withdrawal may be addressed with medication like Suboxone (which is a partial opioid agonist with naloxone).

Sometimes the use of Suboxone is supplemented with Clonidine that aids chills and the associated high blood pressure. Other non-addictive “comfort meds” for sleep, nausea/vomiting, and anxiety are also recommended.
