What Does the Treatment Process Look Like?

Rehab at our facility usually follows a similar process for every client, beginning with an intake evaluation and ending with an aftercare plan.

  • Intake Evaluation

    Upon arrival at The Recovery Village at Palmer Lake, clients undergo a comprehensive intake assessment that evaluates their current and past drug use, physical health and mental well-being. The results of this assessment inform each client’s unique treatment plan.

  • Medical Detox

    Medical detox is the first step of addiction treatment for most clients of The Recovery Village at Palmer Lake. This crucial program rids the body of drugs and alcohol in a safe environment with 24-hour medical care.

  • Transition to Further Treatment

    After detox, clients can transition to inpatient treatment, or to step-down programs like partial hospitalization or intensive outpatient care, as is medically appropriate. During these levels of care, clients can receive medical support and mental health counseling, and they may participate in recreational amenities like yoga when appropriate.

  • Aftercare

    When clients leave our care, they transition back to daily life with a solid aftercare plan that outlines the next steps in recovery. Our aftercare plans include maintenance medications, if applicable, and recommendations for sober living homes and support groups in a client’s local community.
