This is a time where there is a lot of concern surrounding the spread of COVID-19 and we know that many clients are choosing to stay home in order to avoid the virus and stop it’s spread. Social distancing is extremely important to us as we understand that it’s going to take a group effort in order to slow down the spread of the virus. Unfortunately, this is also a time when many people are turning to substances as a way to cope, and there are many others who currently need treatment. Despite the current events, there is still a need for quality treatment- MD Home Detox is continuing to provide that in the safety of the client’s home.
We wanted to make sure that you and your patients are aware of the Intervention and In-Home Detox services that we offer, and we’re available to chat if you want to learn more about this unique solution during this time. We’re dedicated to helping people begin- and continue- on the path of recovery through this outbreak. Our staff is taking all of the necessary steps to ensure our team and our clients are properly screened as we continue to provide our services. In order to do this we are doing the following:
- All Nurses & Doctors are screened & tested
- All Patients are screened
- Sanitation & cleanliness is a top priority (as it always has been).
We’ve always felt that our clients deserve to receive treatment in the privacy and safety of their own homes. During this time, we are continuing to provide our key services, which include:
- Private nurse services
- In-home detoxification
- Mental health stabilization
- Family education and counseling
If you have any questions about treatment, the precautions we’re taking, or how we can help your client that may be avoiding treatment at this time, please don’t hesitate to give us a call at 1-888-592-7931.
Please stay safe and stay healthy.
The MD Home Detox Team
During the intervention, each person in the group asks the addicted person to accept treatment after discussing the consequences of the addiction. In addition, the interventions include:
• Gives the addicted person clear examples of how his or her behavior has had a negative impact on loved ones and their relationships.
• Offers an option for a treatment plan with clear actions to take, reasons for the actions and goals.
• Lists how each family member will contribute to the recovery process if the addicted person accepts treatment, or which consequences will result if the addicted person refuses treatment.
• Provides transportation to an appropriate facility if treatment outside the home is preferable to the family and client.
You and your treatment team can work together on an ongoing basis to change and modify your plans as needed. For example, some of our clients find that 12-step recovery is not for them. The MD Home Detox team uses a holistic approach, to help these clients find other supports for their long and short term goals.
Our assessment and screening process includes assessing how to best support your detox at home. Some home environments are conducive to having the family stay in the home. Some families prefer to stay with family, or friends or at a nearby hotel while their family member is detoxing at home.
