The First 48 Hours: Assessments & Evaluations

The first 48 hours of detox are crucial, and your comfort and safety during that stage is our highest priority. Once you are stabilized, we will then complete a full medical, psychiatric, and psychological assessment.

These evaluations give us a clear picture of how we can help you in your recovery journey, and allow us to tailor a treatment plan to your unique needs. You can expect the assessment process to cover the following topics:

Co-occurring Mental Health Disorder Treatment Explained

Treating Co-Occurring Mental Health Conditions

Not only are we experts in safe medical detox and substance use treatment, but we also specialize in mental health treatments here at Sandstone Care.

We understand that there’s often overlap in symptoms between drug use and mental health disorders, so our staff is trained to identify and treat mental health conditions that commonly appear alongside substance use disorder.

It’s very important to treat both challenges together, as some symptoms of mental health disorders can make addiction recovery more difficult. Our Sandstone mental health treatment uses holistic medical detox methods that address your mental struggles, so you can reach recovery and continue to thrive after treatment.

Program Highlights

You are more than your addiction, and our program is built to reflect that. We offer 24/7 medically supervised care to support a safe and comfortable stabilization followed by a comprehensive, holistic treatment approach that addresses your physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual needs.

Therapy that Treats You Fully

Our inpatient program offers six hours of therapeutic group per day, two individual therapy sessions per week with a licensed therapist, and 24/7 clinical support.

Care that Fits Your Needs

Sandstone Care is not a standalone detox. In addition to our residential program, we have a full continuum of care with varying intensities of inpatient and transitional living programming designed to meet your unique needs.

Environments Where You Can Heal

There are televisions in rooms, high staff to low client ratio, chef-prepared meals, ample green space, and uncompromised support from every staff member. Feeling comfortable is not an extra addition to your treatment, it is one of the core focuses of our program.

Planning for Your Next Step

We are focused on helping you set a foundation for a strong future. That is why we begin to work with you on a discharge plan from the moment you walk through the door. Your plan includes referrals and a warm hand-off to another treatment center if needed.

A Day at Detox

Early Mornings: Waking up

During the first few days of a drug and alcohol detox, rest is extremely important. You will ease into your mornings with scheduled time specifically for waking up, getting ready for the day, breakfast, and meeting with a member of the medical team.

The nursing staff will spend time with you individually in order to check on your vital signs, assess your withdrawal symptoms, and administer any medications that you were prescribed.

Mid-Mornings: Letting it out

After completing your morning routine, you will be invited to join staff and their peers in the common area for morning group. This is a time for you to share how you’re feeling emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually, and for staff to assess your needs.

Discussions are led by a licensed therapist or addiction counselor and range from topics like self-esteem, relationships, and trust, to relapse prevention and life changes.

Afternoons: Opening up

You can count on receiving the essential nutrients your body and mind need to kickstart the healing process. Our culinary team prepares daily family-style lunches.

After lunch, you’ll be invited to join our clinical staff and peers for an afternoon group therapy, delving into topics like mindfulness, life skills, managing cravings, and coping strategies.

Evenings: Community & Reflections

Connect with others who truly understand your journey. After dinner, you’ll have the opportunity to engage in an on-site recovery meeting led by people who understand what you’re going through. These meetings rotate between 12-Step, SMART Recovery, and Refuge Recovery.

After the meeting, unwind with fellow clients, express yourself in your journal, and catch up with family over the phone. You’ll also receive your necessary medications and check in with medical staff who will evaluate your wellness.

At the end of the night, you’ll gather for a brief nightly reflection led by a behavioral health team member. During this meeting you can share how you’re doing mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. You will also have the chance to make amends for any mistakes you made during the day.

You Have Questions, We Have Answers

Our goal is to provide the most helpful information. Please reach out to us if you have any additional questions. We are here to help in any way we can.

Knowing what level of care would be best for you is tricky! If you experience withdrawal symptoms when you attempt to discontinue use, it is more than likely you would benefit from detox treatment services. (Please note: We only treat young adults and adults at our Colorado Springs detox location, and do not treat adolescents.)

The best way to know whether or not you would benefit from medical detox is to get a professional opinion. Our trained admissions team would be happy to speak with you and advise you on next steps. Call us today at (888) 850-1890.

Every person Sandstone Care treats is different. While some detox facilities have a set number of days and a detox protocol that is the same for everyone, we tailor our treatment to meet our clients where they are at. The average length of stay is 5-21 days.

Some of the factors that impact length of stay at our rehab programs are:

  • What substances you are detoxing from
  • How long you have been drinking or using drugs
  • How often you have been drinking or using drugs
  • Your overall physical and mental health
  • Any underlying medical conditions you may have

Your healthcare provider can make a referral for an inpatient or outpatient rehab in Colorado Springs, or you can enter one of the search terms below in a search engine to locate one on your own that meets your needs and budget:

  • “rehab near me”
  • “rehab Colorado Springs”
  • “Colorado Springs rehab facilities”
  • “alcohol rehabilitation center near me”
  • “drug and alcohol rehab Colorado Springs”
  • “Colorado Springs drug treatment center”
  • “drug detox near me”
  • “medical detox Colorado Springs”
  • “residential treatment centers Colorado”

Since alcohol and substance use are considered health issues, your insurance might pay for some or all of the cost of treatment.

If you’re looking for the best outpatient rehab near you, Sandstone Care’s Colorado Springs outpatient centers are some of the treatment centers in Colorado, offering mental health services, IOP and PHP, family therapy, substance abuse treatment, and more. These rehabs in Colorado Springs offer comprehensive treatment that go beyond treating your addiction in the short-term and prioritize sustainable recovery.
