First Step

OUR PURPOSE

Mission Community Hospital’s Reclaim Detoxification Program is known for providing excellent acute medical detoxification services. Our experienced and compassionate medical staff provides the quality care and supportive environment patients need to recover from drug and alcohol addictions.

We walk side-by-side with each individual and their loved ones on the path to healing and recovery. Being a part of the Mission Community Hospital campus provides the extra peace of mind and medical support services that only a hospital can provide. Our physicians work with each patient to stabilize withdrawal symptoms and manage any other acute medical problems with the support of 24-hour nursing care.

We understand that detoxification alone does not treat addiction, but for most individuals is the needed first step. While our primary purpose is to provide safe and comfortable individualized medical detoxification, we believe it is equally important to provide a continuing plan of care for the future. Our health care team looks ahead to the next steps in addressing the underlying issues of addiction and ensuring the success of every patient.

OUR PROGRAMS

First Step provides excellent care and treatment for our patients’ safe, comfortable detoxification from alcohol and other drugs. A personalized program is specifically designed for each person based on an extensive intake interview and analysis of medical information. Each step of detoxification is carefully monitored and supported by the compassionate care of highly-qualified doctors, counselors and nurses. We also take great care in helping our patients select a continuum of care to help them stay free of addictions and fully resume their lives.

Our physicians are accredited in the use of Buprenorphine for the treatment of opiate addiction. Inpatient PROMETA protocols also can be provided for the treatment of alcohol, cocaine and methamphetamine addiction. Reclaim’s discharge planners have established relationships with treatment and recovery programs throughout the community in support of both 12-step programs and other alternatives. We offer free transportation to and from Mission Community Hospital to your aftercare facility of choice.

OUR FACILITY

The Reclaim Medical Detoxification Program is located on the second floor of Mission Community Hospital’s South Tower. This is a spacious setting in a safe and comfortable environment with day room, dining and counseling areas. Our patients have the privacy they need as well as social access if they desire.

Reclaim has been the treatment center of choice for hundreds of individuals each year. We create a warm, welcoming and supportive environment to help individuals recover from the pain of addiction. We understand that people can and do recover from addiction every day, but they rarely do it alone. Mission Community Hospital’s First Step Medical Detoxification Program is here to help.
