Mirmont offers full continuum of Inpatient and Outpatient programs and
services for adults over the age of 18.
Inpatient Medically Monitored Detoxification
Detoxification from alcohol and other drugs is often a necessary first
step on the road to recovery. Typically, detox lasts from 3-5 days
during which time the patient follows a medical protocol, which
significantly reduces withdrawal symptoms until the detox is complete.
After a successful detox the patient is ready for the next level of
care. Some will remain inpatient and some will transition to an
outpatient level of care.
The Rehab Program addresses the physical, mental, emotional and
spiritual aspects of the disease of addiction. Through participating in
daily groups, individual and family counseling and
educational/experiential sessions, the patients develop an understanding
of themselves and their disease which is the groundwork for recovery and
healing. The length of stay for rehab is based on the individual needs
of the patient.
Inpatient Dual Diagnosis
The Dual Diagnosis Program is designed for those who suffer from a
psychiatric disorder and an addiction. A dual diagnosis patient may
experience major depression, anxiety, panic attacks, bipolar disorder or
other psychiatric problems. These patients participate in all aspects of
the rehab program and also see a psychiatrist for a comprehensive
psychiatric evaluation. The psychiatrist also meets with the patient for
medication management as necessary. Dually diagnosed patients
participate in mental health groups that are specifically designed for
their particular issues. These groups include Depressive Disorders,
Bipolar Disorder and Anxiety Disorders. The length of stay for the dual
program is based on the individual needs of the patient.
The Intensive Outpatient Program allows participants to reside at home
and conduct their lives while benefiting from a structured and
supportive level of care that meets three times a week. The three-hour
sessions consist of educational and group therapy components, and are
conducted mornings and evenings in order to accommodate participant’s
varied work schedules. The Intensive Outpatient Program can either be
the initial treatment experience for the participant or the next level
of care after completing an inpatient program.
Client and therapist meet once a week to discuss and explore issues of
early recovery. Themes that may emerge are relationships, stress,
anxiety, depression, physical and emotional trauma, spirituality and
other life issues.
