QUESTION 1: What treatment programs do you offer, and how are they tailored to individual needs?

WHY IT’S IMPORTANT TO ASK: At Silver Pines, we offer a detox program and residential addiction treatment for substance use disorders and dual diagnosis. Each of our addiction recovery programs is designed with the understanding that substance use disorder affects people differently, and our team of experienced clinicians assesses each client upon admission to find ideal treatment options and build a personalized care plan.

By tailoring our programs to individual needs, we provide the best chance for successful and sustainable recovery. Every person struggling with addiction is unique, and a one-size-fits-all approach may not be effective. Understanding the treatment programs and how they are customized to address specific needs ensures that the individual will receive personalized care for their journey to

QUESTION 2: What is the approach to detoxification, and how is the process managed?

WHY IT’S IMPORTANT TO ASK: Detoxification is often the first step in treatment for substance use disorder, and it can be physically and emotionally challenging. Understanding the detox process and how it’s managed ensures that the client will be supported and safe during this critical phase.

At Silver Pines, our detox program is twofold and includes medication-assisted detox and social support. We gather a full history and complete a physical as well as a psychiatric assessment for each client within 24 hours of admission. Our licensed nursing staff provides monitoring and is available 24/7 for assessments and treatment. During each new client’s orientation, which starts within 24 hours of admission, we focus on building connections and relationships while providing education on our recovery programs. We understand that detox can be challenging, but we are here to support and guide you through this process, making sure you are as comfortable as possible.

QUESTION 3: Can you describe the composition of your treatment team and the specific roles and qualifications?

WHY IT’S IMPORTANT TO ASK: The quality of an addiction treatment center largely depends on the qualifications and experience of its staff. Knowing the team members’ credentials provides reassurance that they have the expertise to provide effective, professional, evidence-based care.

At Silver Pines, our team consists of caring professionals who possess a combination of clinical expertise and firsthand experience that guarantees a compassionate, educational, and practical treatment plan for addiction treatment. Our staff includes medical professionals, psychiatrists, therapists, addiction counselors, and therapists dedicated to helping you or your loved one overcome addiction and achieve lasting recovery.

QUESTION 4: What is the staff-to-client ratio, and how is individualized attention ensured?

WHY IT’S IMPORTANT TO ASK: A facility’s staff-to-client ratio directly impacts the level of individualized attention and care each of its clients receive. A low staff-to-client ratio is vital for ensuring that clients get the attention they need for effective treatment and a better change at long-term recovery.

At Silver Pines, we take pride in maintaining a low staff-to-client ratio.. This allows our team to focus on each individual’s needs, offering personalized care and attention. Our approach fosters a supportive environment where clients can build strong relationships with staff members, promoting trust and a sense of safety throughout the recovery process.

QUESTION 5: What amenities and recreational activities are available to support overall well-being?

WHY IT’S IMPORTANT TO ASK: Addiction treatment involves more than just therapy; overall well-being is essential for a successful recovery. Having access to amenities and recreational activities can enhance the treatment experience and provide healthy outlets for stress relief.

At Silver Pines, we believe in a holistic approach to recovery. Our facility offers a range of amenities, such as outdoor recreational areas, a fitness room, yoga, board games, a movie room, relaxation spaces, and more, to support your physical and mental well-being during your stay with us. Engaging in these activities can help reduce stress, promote self-care, and contribute to a positive treatment experience.
