Q. What kind of services does Sovereign Heath offer?
A. Sovereign Health provides a variety of structured, effective treatment methods for mental disorders and addiction. The services offered by Sovereign vary slightly by facility, but can include:
- Detoxification: Detoxification is the body’s process of eliminating harmful and toxic substances. Various Sovereign facilities offer medically assisted detox treatment and nutritionally assisted detox (NAD) to minimize the discomfort and physical effects of the withdrawal process.
- Drug addiction: Sovereign recognizes addiction for the chronic disease it is. Our drug addiction programs help heal our patients physically and mentally.
- Dual diagnosis: We treat patients with two or more co-occurring conditions. The term includes people with mental illness and addiction, as well as those with multiple mental issues or addictive behaviors.
- Mental health: Most Sovereign facilities also offer a separate mental health track for patients who only need treatment from a mental disorder.
- Alumni services: Recovery is a lifetime process. Sovereign Health helps its program graduates after they leave our care, offering chapter meetings, vocational assistance and other skill-building tools useful for a person starting over.
