The First 48 Hours: Assessments & Evaluations

The first 48 hours in detox are crucial, and your comfort and safety during that stage is our highest priority. Once you are stabilized, full medical, psychiatric, and psychological assessments are completed, so we can get to know you and ensure that we have a completely clear picture of how we can help you in your recovery journey.

While your assessment and treatment plan is 100% customized and tailored to your unique needs, the following are some of the topics that your assessment process will cover:

Icon Person Refresh
Physical Health

In addition to an initial evaluation with our Nurse Practitioner, you will be assessed every four hours by a member of our nursing team. This nursing assessment includes checking vital signs, monitoring withdrawal symptoms, and administering medications as needed.

Substance Abuse Evaluation

You will have an initial evaluation of your substance use to make sure that your treatment team has all of the information they need to take care of you in the best way possible.

This information will be gathered again later during the biopsychosocial assessment, which is completed by a therapist or certified addiction counselor.

Icon Mental Health
Mental Health

Each day, you will have a one-on-one check in with a therapist or counselor to evaluate your mental and emotional status, as well as any symptoms of depression, anxiety, PTSD, or any other mental health disorders you may be struggling with.

Family History

During the biopsychosocial assessment, you are asked to provide in-depth information about the history of family medical, mental health, and substance use disorders to help inform medical and clinical recommendations and treatment planning.

Icon Dual Diagnosis
Initial Psychiatric Evaluation

You will meet with our psychiatric nurse practitioner for an initial evaluation of your mental health and psychiatric status. This evaluation will determine whether or not psychiatric medications would be useful in the management of any symptoms and diagnoses.

Medication Management

It’s important for the medical and clinical staff to know what medications you have been on in the past. If medications are prescribed by the medical team at Colorado Springs Detox Center, regular assessments of medication effectiveness will be completed in order to ensure we are providing the best and most effective care possible.

Discharge Planning Assessment

The discharge planning team works with you individually to build a discharge plan that is unique to you. Depending on your specific needs, they may be given referrals for residential, extended care, or outpatient programs for ongoing aftercare support.

Support from Admission to Discharge

From the moment you walk through the door, our treatment team begins collaborating with you to build a strong foundation for your life in and after treatment. With six hours of clinical groups per day, two individual therapy sessions per week, and 24/7 clinical support available, our primary focus is creating a safe and secure environment for you.

Throughout treatment, we will get to know you personally and collaborate on a plan for your next steps together. Your care team will work with you to adapt your future treatment goals to meet your needs, in real time.

Whether you are discharged or transition into one of our young adult transitional living programs, we will ensure that your personal circumstances are at the center of how we help you in the future.

Co-occurring Mental Health Disorder Treatment Explained

Treating Co-Occurring Mental Health Conditions

Not only are we experts in safe medical detox, but we also believe in treating the whole person. You may have mental health challenges alongside your addiction, and our staff is trained to identify and treat those conditions.

Because there can be an overlap in symptoms between drug use and mental health disorders, it’s very important to accurately assess and treat both challenges together. Some symptoms of mental health disorders can make addiction recovery more difficult as you try to self-medicate.

By using holistic medical detox methods that take your mental struggles into account, you can reach long-lasting recovery and feel like yourself again.

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.

Comprehensive Residential Programming

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.

Continuum of Care

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.


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.

Robust Discharge Planning

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

An important part of the addiction treatment and recovery process is receiving proper nutrition to begin healing both your body and mind. Lunch is prepared daily by our on-site culinary team and is served family style.

After lunch, you will be invited to join our clinical staff and your peers in the afternoon group. Topics covered include mindfulness, life skills, managing cravings, and coping skills.

Evenings: Community & Reflections

Connecting with others who understand what you are going through makes the recovery process more fulfilling and long lasting. After dinner, you will be invited to join a sober member of the community for an on-site recovery meeting. These community-led meetings rotate between 12-Step, SMART Recovery, and Refuge Recovery.

After the addiction recovery meeting is finished, you will be given time to wind down. This is a time for you to talk with other clients, journal, and connect with your family members through phone calls.

Before going to sleep, you will be given any medications you need and you will have time to check in with medical staff before you’re asked to gather for a short nightly reflection. This group session is led by a member of the behavioral health team and is an opportunity for you to focus on gratitude and reflect on the events of their day.

You will be asked to share how you’re doing mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. You are also given the opportunity to make any amends to their peers or staff for things that were said or done during the day.

Substance-Specific Detox Resources

Detoxing from substances can be difficult to do on your own. You may have even used substances before just to avoid the way withdrawal symptoms made you feel. Without proper medical support, withdrawal can be dangerous and even life-threatening.

Our treatment approach includes using medication to help with your symptoms and ensure your safety. You will have around-the-clock nursing care to make sure that you are safe, comfortable, and fully supported.
