Detox: Coliseum Center for Behavioral Health offers a medically safe detoxification in an inpatient hospital setting. Doctors, nurses, and support staff will monitor the detoxing patient closely to ensure safety and comfort along with stabilization.
Inpatient Education: A wide variety of classes, groups and activities are available to help chemically dependent individuals begin to understand the nature of addiction, stages of recovery, recovery resources, and relapse prevention.
Partial Hospitalization: After detox, patients may take part in a hospital based partial program. They will participate in groups, classes, and activities during part of the day and return home each night. Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. Opportunities are available for family and friends to learn about their roles in recovery through a weekly family day.
Intensive Outpatient Program: Our intensive outpatient program is an ongoing substance abuse treatment program with a strong 12-step philosophy. The program offers a flexible schedule of treatment allowing patients to live at home and maintain a work schedule whenever possible. The program provides essential education and treatment services to help prevent relapse of chemical dependency symptoms and to bridge the gap between Partial Hospitalization and 12-step recovery maintenance. Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, 7:00 a.m. to 11:45 a.m..
Transition/Discharge Planning: An important part of chemical dependency services is helping the patients make sound decisions concerning the next stage of recovery following discharge. Our counselors will work with patients to help them find the best recovery resources available.
Aftercare: To assist patients and their families make a successful transition from inpatient treatment to outpatient recovery, Coliseum Center for Behavioral Health offers a once-a-week evening aftercare group at no charge.
12-Step Meetings: Inpatients attend a 12-Step meeting at the hospital each week, while partial hospitalization program patients and family members will be given assistance in locating 12-Step meetings within a reasonable driving distance from their home.
