Medical Services

After more than 25 years of service to the recovery community, Pat Moore Foundation continues to offer our nationally-recognized, reasonably priced alcohol and drug treatment program for men and women. Not only do we offer non-medical and medically managed detoxification practices, but we also offer a host of Medical Services for those in our treatment program.

  • Health and Physical Exam 
  • Medical Detoxification Services
  • Detoxification Medications
  • Dehydration Evaluation
  • After-Detox Therapy
  • Nutrition and Alcohol Evaluation

Health and Physical Exam

Once a client arrives at Pat Moore Foundation, they begin an intake process, which takes approximately an hour and includes; Urine and drug screen test, breathalyzer, medical history, and any other necessary paperwork. In addition to a standard intake, other exams are given, which include a comprehensive metabolic panel and blood counter, covering liver, kidney, electrolytes, and more.

Medical Detoxification Services

Not everyone who comes through the doors of Pat Moore Foundation needs a medical detoxification, so we provide both a non-medical and medically managed detoxification. Typically, and depending on the detoxification type, it could take anywhere from 3-14 days: Meth, Crank, Speed or Cocaine, takes 3-5 days; Alcohol often takes 5-10 days; and Opiates typically take 7-14 days.

Detoxification Medications

All medical services are administered by medical professionals, which are facilitated and operated solely under the jurisdiction of a separate medical corporation. Detoxification Medications typically administered are Suboxone, Subutex, and Buprenorphine, and will only be provided where a medically managed detoxification is necessary and appropriate.

Dehydration Evaluation

Consists of IV Therapy where fluids help replenish hydration. Typically if an addict is ‘in their addiction’ they tend to not eat, not drink healthy fluids, and have lost weight. IV Fluid and vitamin therapy is highly recommended in cases like these. It’s quicker, and helps build a healthy foundation for the road ahead, allowing the addict to come off detox faster and then right into after-detox therapy and treatment.

After Detox Therapy

This type of therapy or treatment discusses 12-step programs, individual and group therapy, residential in-house treatment, sober living, and other medications to help maintain sobriety. We are often asked “Is there anything you can give me to secure that the addict won’t go out and shoot heroin again?” There isn’t a guarantee, as the main thrust of maintaining sobriety is with the addict, but a vivatrol (naltrexone) shot is a 30-day blocker, which helps block the addict’s system and offers another deterrent from using.

Nutrition and Alcohol Evaluation

Because alcohol lowers b-vitamins, counters low nutrition, and often times people who haven’t been eating well, or at all, can’t absorb the right nutrients. They often require injection(s), to raise their b-levels. Low b-12 levels run in tandem with low energy, fuzziness and similar type symptoms.

 

 

The physicians utilize a wide range of pharmaceuticals including Naltrexone and Suboxone to medically manage a fast, pain-free start to withdrawal. All medical services are administered by medical professionals, which are facilitated and operated solely under the jurisdiction of a separate medical corporation.
