We know that many medications—even when taken in exact accordance with a doctor’s instructions—can change our behavior and cause harmful side effects. In order to determine if the medications you’re taking are causing more harm than good, our medical team needs to be able to monitor you outside of typical business hours, analyze your medication list, and make sure your symptoms are being treated as effectively as possible. Medical detox at CeDAR allows our clinical team to take a close look at your medications, observe your symptoms, and come up with solutions.
At CeDAR, we believe that needing help managing your medications and coping with physical dependency are nothing to be ashamed of. If you have become chemically dependent on drugs that are harming your health, you have suffered long enough. Every member of our staff is committed to offering the best, most compassionate, and respectful care. And our progressive treatment center will change your perception of Denver detox centers overall. Our addiction treatment center is affiliated with UCHealth, and we accept many forms of insurance. To inquire about availability, please contact us by calling 720.848.3000.
Drug Treatment and COVID-19
Many people are still fearful of being around groups of people due to COVID-19. While this fear is completely rational, maintaining your mental health is critical during this time. If you are concerned that medications you’ve been prescribed need to be readjusted or you have been supplementing with unregulated substances, our PHP can help with the following concerns:
- Medication management
- Telehealth psychiatry
- Virtual process groups
- Individual counseling
- Crisis stabilization
There is no reason to feel intimidated by telehealth appointments. Our staff can always be reached by phone to walk you through the process of setting up the app, completing paperwork online, and how to handle technical difficulties.
Does My Insurance Cover Online Partial Hospitalization?
Several insurance plans cover outpatient counseling, including partial hospitalization. Contact your health insurance provider or a CeDAR representative to find out whether your insurance covers this program. You can also verify your insurance online by clicking here: Verify My Insurance. As we all know, digital medicine is a hygienic, convenient, low-stress alternative to inpatient and outpatient drug treatment.
If family obligations, work commitments, or transportation issues are preventing you from attending in-person treatment for substance use disorder, our virtual partial hospitalization program allows patients to attend treatment from the comfort of their own homes. Our virtual PHP is a full-time addiction treatment program that takes place virtually from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday through Friday.
How Does Virtual Medication Management Work?
The only difference in the mental health care you will receive in CeDAR’s telehealth program and an in-person PHP is that you will not be in the same room with your healthcare provider. Using a telehealth app, you can connect to your therapist for one-on-one sessions from your home, place of employment, or anywhere else. You will need a smartphone, laptop, or any internet-ready device with a camera to get this type of care. Video conferencing like this may feel overwhelming, but we can assure you that telehealth psychiatry appointments are much less stressful than in-person appointments. You will be able to see and interact with your therapist without the hassle of traveling to appointments.
Crisis Stabilization and Psychiatric Assistance
At CeDAR, the majority of our mental health and substance use disorder treatment programs are in-person. If you need assistance with detox or acute stabilization, we offer the following dual diagnosis programs:
- Inpatient medical detox
- Residential mental health
- Extended residential dual diagnosis
- Denver outpatient addiction treatment
- Boulder outpatient addiction treatment
Addiction-Related Psychiatric Disorders
Chemical dependency can be catastrophic for a person with an existing psychiatric disorder. If a prescribed (or unprescribed) medication is no longer helping the patient, that patient’s medication needs to be adjusted by a team of doctors, psychiatrists, therapists, and other patient advocates. However, patients experiencing psychiatric distress cannot be expected to evaluate their own medications. At CeDAR, we are committed to helping people become stable during the most vulnerable times of their lives. If you feel like you are out of options, give us a call at 720.848.3000.
