Levels of Care

Sunrise House provides a comprehensive continuum of care featuring levels of addiction treatment care based on the patient’s particular substance use history and treatment recommendations. A patient may move to another level of care based on clinical need throughout their treatment stay.

Upon arrival, patients will undergo medical and psychosocial assessments with our clinical staff where they are evaluated for addiction severity, psychosocial history, general physical health, and any ongoing medical conditions. These evaluations help our staff determine the appropriate level of care.

Medical Detox

Medical detoxification services (detox) is available as a vital first step in addiction treatment, though not all patients will require this step. At Sunrise House, ensuring your safety is imperative. During the medical and psychosocial assessments at admission, our clinical staff determines whether you need to begin with this step.

Whether medical detox will be necessary will depend current substance use, length of abuse, drug of choice, and physical dependence. During detox, you will be given a private room and 24/7 medical supervision as your body adjusts to the reduction in any substances on which you are dependent.

Not every individual in detox has the clinical need for medication during the withdrawal process. Our licensed medical staff takes into account the individual, substances used, and other factors to safely manage their detox. We use detox methods that are tailored to the specific toxic substance being eliminated from the client’s system. Our skilled staff is knowledgeable about symptoms, protocols, and nuances of withdrawal from numerous drugs.

More than half of all detox beds at Sunrise House are equipped with the revolutionary EarlySense technology, which monitors your heart rate and other vital signs during sleep and alerts the medical staff of any potentially life-threatening changes.

The detox process generally takes 4-7 days but can take longer depending on the substance. After completing detox, you will be evaluated by our multidisciplinary treatment staff and begins your individualized treatment plan at the appropriate care level.
