For patients in need of medically supervised detoxification, the Addiction Recovery program offers fully licensed, acute-care inpatient treatment. In this short-stay inpatient program, patients withdraw from alcohol, heroin, prescription opioids, tranquilizers and other substances of potential abuse.
During the hospital stay, patients are medically stabilized and treated for emotional, behavioral and physical distress resulting from alcohol or drug abuse. Patients who have complex cases or other underlying medical conditions have full access to the broad expertise of the entire Greenwich Hospital staff.
Patients stay an average of 2 to 4 days, during which time a comprehensive aftercare plan is developed in collaboration with the patient. After they are discharged, many patients progress to the day or evening outpatient program.
