We’ve created a program that prepares clients to enter the next phase of treatment, physically and mentally ready to begin the work of overcoming their addictions.
West Palm Beach, CA (PRWEB) August 06, 2015
Elements Behavioral Health has announced the opening of Bel Canto(SM) drug detoxification center, a premier 16-bed facility centrally located on the border of West Palm Beach, Fla. The center’s experienced, multidisciplinary team includes a medical director, psychiatrists, psychiatric and advanced nurse practitioners, a therapist, case manager and recovery coach.
Medical detox is a necessary first step for many people trying to overcome drug or alcohol addiction as withdrawal from drugs of abuse often requires medical supervision to prevent life-threatening medical complications and ensure client comfort during the detox period. “We put this program together with great care,” says Janis Blenden, LCSW, the detox center’s executive director. “It has been three years in the making, and we’ve incorporated key elements that we think are essential for a medically safe, emotionally supportive detox experience.”
The program includes the latest evidence-based medications to ease withdrawal symptoms, individual and group therapy with holistic components, round-the-clock nursing, and an excellent staff-to-client ratio to provide an exceptional level of individual attention and care.
“We’ve created a program that prepares clients to enter the next phase of treatment, physically and mentally ready to begin the work of overcoming their addictions,” says Blenden, a veteran clinician with Florida’s Department of Children and Families and a national speaker on mental health court programs.
Bel Canto(SM) detox center is set on a large property lined with mango trees, shade trees and other greenery. “When they enter our gates,” says Blenden, “clients find a quiet and tranquil oasis amid a bustling city.” The facility has new, modern furnishings, warm décor and comfortable living and common spaces, as well as access to outdoor seating areas.
“We are excited about the addition of the Bel Canto detox facility into our family of addiction treatment centers,” says Elements Behavioral Health CEO David Sack, MD. “Although we operate facilities nationwide, this is our first dedicated detox center and the first detox facility that we’ve built from the ground up. We’ve drawn on all of our training and experience to create a comfortable, convenient, medically advanced facility.”
