Helping Patients to Safely Detoxify
Our licensed detoxification services set Project Turnabout apart from most treatment centers. Our dedicated nursing staff provides professional, around-the-clock medical care, helping patients safely detoxify from chemicals.
The 15-bed, Minnesota Rule 32 certified detoxification unit, is open to anyone needing detoxification services. We provide transportation services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. These can be from medical facilities or law enforcement agencies to our facility in Granite Falls. Learn more about our Medical Unit here.
How it Works
Detoxification is conducted by our around-the-clock nursing staff. They are specifically trained to facilitate and monitor a patient’s health and well being during the period they are initially withdrawing from chemicals. Nursing staff use established protocols to monitor patients’ withdrawal progression. They also administer medications as needed to reduce the risk of severe withdrawal symptoms. We work with local medical providers (clinic, emergency room) in the event a patient needs urgent medical support in order to safely complete their initial withdrawal.
Patients remain on the Detoxification Unit throughout their stay and do not participate in activities with other patients. Patients may smoke in a designated area with staff supervision. Educational videos and frequent interactions with both nursing and human services techs are utilized. This provides patients with basic education about chemical abuse and dependency.

Detoxification is not an easy process, therefore we try to make the process easier on the patient by having a variety of things available to help reduce the risk of severe withdrawal symptoms.

Please note that while we do use medication to help reduce withdrawal symptoms, Project Turnabout does not support the use of Suboxone, Subutex, or Methadone as maintenance medications for opiate withdrawal. We work with either local medical providers or a patient’s primary physician to taper patients off these medications.
All detoxification patients must meet specific criteria and have minimal or no remaining withdrawal symptoms to be safely discharged. Many patients return to their homes or communities after completing detoxification. Project Turnabout makes every effort to meet the needs of patients who wish to participate in treatment services. This can either be at our organization or through referral to another provider.
A variety of funding options are available for detoxification. This includes most major insurances, Minnesota Consolidated Fund, private pay, and a limited amount of charitable funds. Funding arrangement must be made with the Business Office prior to admission.Affordable CareRequest More Information
