Detox Admissions Process Walkthrough

Addiction treatment specialists at Briarwood are ready to guide and assist you through a simple admissions procedure and individualized detox treatment as soon as you are ready to begin. The following is a step-by-step guide on Briarwood’s tailored admissions process, so you can be prepared and know what to expect from the experience.

1. Private and Personalized Phone Screening

To begin this process, you may either call or fill out a contact form online. An admissions specialist will contact you to gather essential information about your drug or alcohol use and your treatment requirements. Additionally, it is our highest priority that all of your personal information be kept confidential during this process. Because our detox program is not necessarily a fitting option for everyone, we’ll assist you in locating the appropriate treatment resources if we feel there is an option better suited for you.

2. Brief Insurance Verification

Once we’ve determined that Briarwood is a good match for you, we’ll briefly verify your medical insurance over the phone. Please have your insurance company’s name, your member ID number, your date of birth, and the provider’s phone number ready. Again, all information you give will be kept private and confidential. We can provide you with information about alternative payment methods, such as EAP (Employee Assistance Program) benefits or an HSA (Health Savings Account) if you do not have medical insurance or do not wish to use it.

3. Scheduled Admissions Meeting

Our staff will meet with you to go over the admissions process and handle your initial paperwork.  If you would like to start your detox therapy right away, our staff will happily begin the intake process. Once you have finished the intake forms, you will meet with our certified medical personnel for an initial assessment.

4. Complete Medical Assessment 

Prior to beginning detox treatment, you must complete a physical medical exam with our staff. This comprehensive exam evaluates your medical history, mental health history, current physical condition, and drug and alcohol use history. This procedure is intended to ensure all your immediate needs are met and that we are able to build the best treatment plan for you.

5. Personalized Detox Program

Our team of specialists is dedicated to ensuring that you receive the finest care possible. We use the information gathered from your medical exam to create a personalized treatment plan for you. Throughout your treatment, your drug detox protocol will be modified to ensure that your requirements are met. Additionally, your safety is of the utmost importance.

What to Bring With You to Detox

Other than personal identification, insurance, and medical documents, what should you bring with you to detox? Here’s a comprehensive list of items you can and/or should bring:

  •  Enough clothing for 5 to 7 days
  • Tennis shoes (or any comfortable pair of shoes)
  • Jacket or coat
  • Personal toiletries and hygiene products (toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, deodorant, sanitary napkins, etc.)
  • Books (recovery or spiritual only)
  • Journal/stationary
  • Stamps
  • Laptop and cell phone (Executive Detox only)

Conversely, here are some things we prohibit our patients from bringing to detox:

  • Materials or clothing associated with drug use, alcohol use, or sexual content. This also includes promotional logos.
  • Firearms or weapons of any kind. Our facilities are equipped with security and protocols to keep our patients and staff safe.
  • Products containing alcohol or drug paraphernalia
  • Bedding (we have hypoallergenic options to cater to any allergies. Just let the admissions staff know.)
  • Personal décor or furniture
  • Pets (including ESA and service animals)
  • Food or beverages as our facilities provide all meals. We even cater to any allergies you may have!
