Levels of Care Offered at Townsend
Levels of Care
Outpatient Care for Your Loved Ones
Townsend addiction treatment facilities can provide the addiction treatment you or your loved ones need in our outpatient or residential programs. If your addiction severity and treatment needs are appropriate for outpatient care, we operate eight facilities throughout the state of Louisiana.
In our daytime or evening programs, we offer Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) and Outpatient Detox for individuals suffering from alcohol or drug addiction. Our flexible scheduling offers day and evening programs that don’t interfere with patients living their lives. Unlike some inpatient rehabilitation, our outpatient programs don’t take patients away from their family, job, or school responsibilities for extended periods of time.
Residential Treatment (RT)
At our Residential Treatment (RT) program in Scott, Louisiana, patients reside at the facility and are under 24/7 monitoring by our medical staff. All patients participate in their individualized treatment plan of appropriate addiction therapies that may include individual counseling, group therapy, family sessions, and other therapeutic activities.
While the patient’s body adjusts to a decrease in substance levels, a higher level of medical supervision is prudent. Not all patients require this level of care, but the addiction severity and the patient’s need for Residential Detox is determined following a thorough medical and psychosocial evaluation.
Along with the patient’s substance use disorder, our team reviews any environmental or situational stressors that may influence treatment and recovery. Not every patient requires medically supervised detox, and factors influencing the need for medical monitoring include the patient’s drug of choice, current usage, length of abuse, severity of addiction, physical dependence, and anticipated intensity of withdrawal symptoms.
Townsend stresses the importance of patients developing their aftercare or continuing care plans from day one. Before graduating from treatment, it’s important for patients to have their aftercare or continuing care plans in place. In early recovery, or in the days or months after program completion, individuals have thoughts of returning to their substance. Despite all of the hard work they did in treatment, the urge can be overwhelming. To help reduce these feelings, a plan for continuing care is important.
