The first step to detox doesn’t start with Day 1; it starts with informing people of what to expect and how to get help. Our goal was to bring in the community and offer them a comfortable environment to ask those questions.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 10, 2015
On January 23rd, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Revive Detox held an Open House for addiction professionals and others interested in seeing a unique, gold-standard approach to safe detox. Located at 360 N. Vista Street in Los Angles, California, Revive Detox is an upscale sub-acute detox facility that treats no more than six clients at a time in a comfortable, homelike setting. It was a welcoming evening with an upwards of 80 guests in attendance. Guests toured the house and met Dr. Robert Waldman, MD. Dr. Waldman is a nationally recognized addiction recovery specialist and a consulting expert at Revive Detox. Guests also had the opportunity to speak with the professional treatment team, and enjoyed tapas and treats created by Chef Michael. Chef Michael, along with the entire support staff, has additional training and education in addictions, allowing him to take a personal and empathic approach when caring for clients at Revive.
Reflecting on the evening, Dr. Ronaye Calvert, Executive Director at Revive Detox adds, “We held the Open House as an opportunity to meet the community and answer questions personally. Often, the first step to detox doesn’t start with Day 1; it starts with informing people of what to expect and how to get help. Our goal was to bring in the community and offer them a comfortable environment to ask those questions. Guests wanted to know if treatment is held on site and we clarified heavily that absolutely no treatment takes place on site, giving us the opportunity to really work with programs in our community, from treatment centers to sober livings. We heard from several professionals afterward that this was one of the best open house events they had ever attended.” Among treatment and insurance questions, the attendees also commented on the how peaceful Revive Detox felt and how passionate the team was about the work they are setting out to do.
Revive Detox uses an enhanced 4:1 staff-to-patient model, created and implemented by dedicated addiction specialists with a new vision of detox care. This high level of personal attention is often what makes the difference in completing detox successfully. “No client feels alone and isolated at Revive Detox,” explains Dr. Ronaye Calvert. “During the most difficult hours of detox, each client has the necessary human touch and reassurance to move towards the next steps in recovery.”
Created by experts, Revive Detox takes a unique approach to this essential first step of drug and alcohol treatment. Revive Detox is a completely independent facility that accepts self-referring patients, as well as those referred by primary physicians, mental health care providers and addiction treatment facilities. This sets Revive Detox apart, since many Los Angeles drug and alcohol treatment facilities are affiliated with sub-acute detox programs located outside California, in which case clients must go out of state for detox and then travel back to California for rehab. As an independent facility, Revive Detox closes this gap, so that detoxification and addiction rehab are geographically convenient, and supported by meticulous transitional support services. Offering an insurance savvy team with extended resources that come from professional and support staff a depth and range of experience, Revive Detox offers unparalleled access to detox services and follow-up care that is both easy and expertly guided.
