Virginia’s Leading Detox Designed Around You

If you or someone you care about is fighting addiction, we provide a straightforward path to recovery.

We keep things small, with no more than 24 clients at a time and a 3-to-1 client-to-staff ratio; with most clients staying between 5 to 21 days. This means you get the dedicated support you need to achieve real recovery.

With semi-private rooms to ensure comfort and privacy, and 24/7 medically supervised care, we set the stage for holistic treatment that covers your physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing.

Virginia Drug Rehab Options

At Sandstone Care, we understand that addiction can come in many forms. We’re here to provide the support and resources necessary for you, no matter what your substance use history looks like.

We can help you detox from drugs and overcome various forms of addiction, including alcohol, prescription drugs, opioids, and so much more. The team at our Fairfax detoxification center is committed to providing safe detox along with addiction treatment services that help put you on the path to rehabilitation.

Marijuana Treatment

Marijuana has become a way to self-medicate for underlying issues and it’s easy to become dependent on its use.

Alcohol Treatment

Studies have found that binge drinking & heavy alcohol use are often ways adults cope with stress and anxiety.

Stimulant Treatment

Commonly abused stimulants include cocaine, methamphetamines, and prescription stimulants, like Ritalin, Adderall, and Concerta.

Opioid Treatment

Opioid misuse occurs when a person uses heroin or misuses prescription pain relievers like hydrocodone, oxycodone, and morphine.

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, allowing us to tailor a treatment plan to your unique needs. The assessment process covers the following topics:

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.

Individualized Treatment Plans
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.

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.

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 the staff at our Fairfax county detoxification center 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.

Chantilly Detox Center Program Highlights

You are more than your addiction, and our detox program in Fairfax County 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.

Heal Every Day

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

Find the Right Fit

Sandstone Care is not a stand alone detox. In addition to our residential program, we have a full continuum of care with varying outpatient treatment programs designed to meet your unique situation and needs.

Take the 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.

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.

After lunch, you can join our clinical staff and fellow peers in the afternoon group sessions. These sessions cover important topics such as 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 able to join an on-site recovery meeting with a supportive community member.

You will have dedicated time to relax, connect with family, and journal during your personal downtime.

Before bedtime, you will receive any necessary medications, have a chance to check in with the medical staff, and participate in a brief nightly reflection led by our behavioral health team. You will be able to share how you’re doing and, if needed, make amends with peers or staff.

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. (Please note that our Chantilly Detox location only treats adults and young adults, not adolescents.)

However, the best way to know whether or not you would benefit from medical detox at a recovery center is to get a professional opinion. Our trained admissions team would be happy to speak with you and advise you on next steps.

Every individual we treat at Sandstone Care is unique. Unlike facilities with a fixed detox protocol and set duration, we customize our treatment to address your specific needs. The average length of stay ranges from 5 to 14 days, and factors influencing this duration include:

  • How often you’ve been drinking or using drugs
  • Your overall physical and mental well-being
  • Any underlying medical conditions you may have

Each client is supported by a highly-credentialed, multidisciplinary treatment team that includes a Medical Doctor, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, Licensed Clinicians, Registered Nurses, Addiction Counselors, and Case Managers.

Residential centers are rehabilitation services that are provided outside of a hospital setting and typically offer longer stays within the facility. These live-in rehab centers provide structure, assistance with employment or education, as well as group and individual therapies that focus on addressing underlying psychological or behavioral problems related to substance abuse.

Inpatient rehabilitation often involves a short-term stay within a hospital setting with healthcare professionals, and is used in emergency situations to help stabilize their health. As a result, continued treatment in follow-up programs addressing drug addiction or alcohol addiction may be required.
