3What is treatment like at Sahaara Foundation?
Sahaara Foundation programs approach treatment with several things in mind. First, we treat each person who comes to us with dignity & respect & we provide a safe place in which to start the healing process. Next, we want to be very accurate in any diagnosis so the assessment & evaluation processes are very thorough to ensure that the person is clinically appropriate for our level of care. Our treatment philosophy is based on the recognition that addiction is a disease & that abstinence is the only way to manage the disease. We approach each person in a holistic way, working with mind, body & spirit as integral components of a healthy life.
4Is medical detoxification (detox) offered as a part of residential treatment?
Comprehensive, medically-supervised detoxification ensures that patients are medically stabilized before beginning the multi-dimensional treatment process. Upon admission to Sahaara Foundation, all patients undergo comprehensive medical evaluation of their physical health & receive medical detoxification services, as necessary.
5What if a patient needs psychiatric help?
Your intake counselor will gather your mental health background & with your permission discuss your needs with your mental health care provider. All of our programs work with people who have concurrent mental health issues in addition to their diagnosis of addiction. However, we are not a locked psychiatric facility, & if your condition is too severe to be safely accommodated at Sahaara Foundation, we will refer you to another treatment provider.
