What to expect before during and after admissions?
Before a guest is admitted to our recovery program, they may need to safely detox.
Detox is the process of removing harmful substances from a person’s body. Each person has a different experience with detox that is dependent on the type of substance and amount used. This process, when done with medical supervision, can help the person affected safely manage withdrawal symptoms.
We would like to remind anyone reading this: Detoxing at home can be deadly. If an individual is not supervised by a medical team, health issues like seizures and dehydration can occur.
Framework Recovery does not provide detox services; however, our expert staff can recommend detox facilities based on their findings from a medical evaluation.
- Evaluate: Our medical team will provide drug testing services. This helps determine if any medication is needed and what course of treatment is recommended. Our team will also discuss with guests their substance use, medical and mental health history. This will help us prepare a comprehensive, long-term plan for the guest.
After choosing Framework Recovery as their treatment provider, guests will begin their comprehensive and individualized treatment plan with our support teams at their side.
The next step is to pack your bags.
PACKING YOUR BAGS: WHAT SHOULD YOU BRING?
When thinking about what to bring to treatment, we recommend:
- Electronics (phone, computer, etc.)
- Video games
- Food and snacks
A guest should bring all of the things they would want on an extended vacation minus the drugs and alcohol. Items like pillows, blankets and sheets will be provided by Framework Recovery. We want this to feel like home, a safe space while all guests are under our roof.
IT’S YOUR FIRST DAY! WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?
Guests will arrive and be given a tour of the property, given access codes and wifi, shown where they will be sleeping, given an intake packet to go through and sign and a chore to take care of.
The first night guests are here, they should just focus on unpacking and feeling comfortable. We encourage items to be taken out of suitcases and put away ASAP because leaving things in a suitcase is mentally being halfway out the door. After the intake is done, there will be contact with case management, and a separate intake will be performed for the IOP program.
The first week will be an introduction into the IOP, meeting attendance and outside world planning like looking for jobs, schooling, etc. Guests will be working closely with their case managers at this time to develop a plan of attack and to mitigate any worries over free time or their schedule. Guests should start to bond with other housemates and will be introduced during the weekly house meeting.
