Helping Patients to Safely Withdrawal
Our licensed withdrawal management services set Project Turnabout apart from most treatment centers. Our dedicated nursing personnel provides professional, around-the-clock medical care, helping to safely withdrawal from chemicals.
The 15-bed, Minnesota Rule 32 certified withdrawal management unit is open to anyone needing withdrawal management 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
Withdrawal management is conducted by our around-the-clock nursing personnel. They are specifically trained to facilitate and monitor health and well being during the period they are initially withdrawing from chemicals. Nursing personnel use established protocols to monitor 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 urgent medical support is needed in order to safely complete their initial withdrawal.
Those receiving our withdrawal services remain on the Withdrawal Management Unit throughout their stay and do not participate in activities with others. They may smoke in a designated area with personnel supervision. Educational videos and frequent interactions with both nursing and human services technicians are utilized. This provides them with basic education about chemical abuse and dependency. Download a printable handout about the withdrawal management process here.
Withdrawal is not an easy process, therefore we try to make the process easier on the by having a variety of things available to help reduce the risk of severe withdrawal symptoms.
- Hot Soaker Tub
- Alpha-Stim Unit
- A TENS Unit for Deep Bone Relief
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 withdrawal management participants must meet specific criteria and have minimal or no remaining withdrawal symptoms to be safely discharged. Many return to their homes or communities after completing withdrawal. 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 withdrawal management. 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
