Chemical Dependency Treatment

The basic philosophy of chemical dependency treatment at Deaconess Cross Pointe is that chemical dependency is a disease with a specific set of symptoms, treatment objectives and treatment techniques. 

Before admission to the outpatient chemical dependency program, patients are assessed by one of our licensed and trained professionals.  After the assessment, a physician and chemical dependency therapist determine the appropriate level of care, which may include inpatient or outpatient treatment.

Dual Diagnosis

The initial phase of treatment may include a detoxification period. During this time, patients are monitored for signs and symptoms of withdrawal. While the focus of this period of treatment is medical safety, an introduction to rehabilitation is also begun. The length of this phase of treatment varies based on each patient's need; however, the average length of medical detoxification is three days.
