The Detox Clinic of Hattiesburg announces the opening of a new Outpatient Alcohol Detox & Rehab Program. The Clinic Director is Dr. Kevin M. Passer, a Johns Hopkins Trained, Triple Board Certified Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist, General Adult Psychiatrist and Addictionologist. Since graduating from Medical School in 1986, Dr. Passer has successfully detoxed over 2000 patients from alcohol. In most cases, about four days of taking FDA approved medications are required for patients being detoxed from alcohol on an outpatient basis.

All patients undergoing treatment in The Program, must have a responsible adult with them at all times throughout the four day at home period. That "helper" must accompany the patient during both their initial and follow-up clinic appointments. Patients should not drive and must remain at home until after the four days are completed.

At The Outpatient Alcohol Program, the goal is to support patients in their decision to become free from alcohol. After the four day detox period is completed, additional medications may be recommended and prescribed as indicated for patients to help maintain sobriety. There are three FDA approved medications for use in the treatment of Alcoholism. All treatment options available are discussed and individualized as per each patient's particular needs. Such treatment recommendations may also include medications for depression, anxiety and sleep.

One main advantage of The Program is the fact that it is all done on an outpatient basis, thus avoiding a three to five day inpatient hospitization. Careful screening of every new, prospective patient is done by phone before an initial appointment is made. In most all cases, new patients are able to start the program within one week following the initial contact with the clinic.

Dr. Passer has stated: "We are not judgmental and do not blame our patients for the problems for which they are coming to us for treatment. We strive to treat everyone with kindness and respect at all times. We believe it is an honor to be trusted with caring for our patients."
