Do you do rapid detox?

No, we don’t believe in that approach. Our psychiatrist supervises a slow tapering process that generally takes 2-3 weeks and is supported by appropriate medications to ease opioid withdrawal symptoms. We provide plenty of supportive counseling during this time and encourage exercise, hydration, and proper nutrition.

Is this an abstinence-based program?

No, we are not, and this sets us apart from many other chronic pain management programs that utilize an abstinence-based model. We believe our patients have the right to experience a trial off of opioids to discover whether opioid pain medications have contributed to greater pain sensitivity, as they often do. While the majority of our patients discharge opioid-free – and with an average of 24% less pain – others rotate to either Suboxone for pain relief and for relapse prevention, or to a much-reduced dose of a full opioid (generally with a 77% reduction in dosing).

Can I expect to become free of pain when I leave?

Some patients leave the program pain free. But more often patients experience a significant reduction in chronic pain and learn to take control of any residual pain. This allows them to be less limited by their pain, and to lead fuller, more rewarding lives.

Can I expect to become opioid-free when I leave?

We believe that being opioid-free is often the best course but it may not be the best plan for your particular chronic pain symptoms. While many patients in our chronic pain treatment program can achieve total abstinence from opioids some will still need chronic pain treatment that includes low-dose opioid pain medication. In that case we teach them how to manage their chronic pain on a low dose – and how to keep it there. For others, a final chronic pain treatment plan may include the medication buprenorphine (Suboxone), a partial opioid that provides pain relief while helping you avoid the return to full-strength opioid medication.

What happens when I leave?

We take discharge planning very seriously and our clinical staff will work with you and your family from day one to create a safe, healthy, and meaningful discharge plan. This may include further residential treatment or scheduled appointments with your physicians and therapists.

Eating Disorders Center
How do I know if I have an eating disorder?

It’s not unusual in our culture for people to be concerned about body image and what or how much to eat. This concern crosses the line into a disorder when its intensity, and the severity of the behaviors related to it, become unhealthy and uncontrollable. People with eating disorders go to extreme lengths to control their food intake and often adopt very rigid rules about foods they are “allowed and not allowed” to eat. Episodes of extreme control are often punctuated by episodes of feeling “out-of-control” with food. These patterns can lead to extreme feelings of shame, guilt, and self-loathing.

What do I do if a loved one has an eating disorder but doesn’t want treatment?

Often people struggling with an eating disorder are afraid or unwilling to give up the behaviors and beliefs associated with it despite the great suffering they are causing. They will deny or minimize the “costs” of their illness – to their health, mood, relationships and self-esteem. We suggest you let your loved one know you are concerned about them. In a compassionate, non-judgmental manner, offer your observations of what the eating disorder appears to be doing to them, and let them know you will help them find the help they need.

Will I have my own room?

All rooms are designed as doubles. However, private rooms can be made available at an additional cost.

Will I be allowed to smoke?

Yes. Smoking is permitted in designated areas.
