Addiction and Substance Abuse Treatment

At Glen Oaks Hospital, adults age 18 and over who are living with addiction to drugs or alcohol can detox under supervision through our New Freedom Dual Diagnosis Program. Once the patient’s system is substance free, we provide education about disease management and relapse prevention. This program moves patients through three phases of recovery, including:

Phase one: Medically supervised detoxification led by a professional medical team.

Phase two: Our medical and therapy team develop an individualized treatment plan with a holistic approach. This therapeutic approach includes daily groups led by our highly qualified staff, including Dr. Paul Lee, M.D.; a psychiatrist, licensed chemical dependency counselors, registered nurses and licensed social workers.
In addition to group therapy, we offer individual and family counseling to address the myriad issues that contribute to alcoholism/addiction and prevent permanent recovery.
12-Step meetings are held to assist clients in developing a fellowship of recovery support. This also better enables them to examine damaging beliefs, self-concepts and destructive patterns of behavior.

Phase three: The final stage involves transitioning clients from inpatient treatment into our Intensive Outpatient Chemical Dependency Program (IOP). The core objectives during this final phase include:

  • Relapse prevention skills
  • Managing triggers and cravings
  • Improve healthy life skills
  • Employment training
  • Boarding

Recovery is a continual, lifelong process that requires abstinence from mood-altering substances, treatment of the co-occurring psychological illness and daily application of the spiritual principles found in 12-Step modalities.
