Residential Treatment

    Reid Lofgran - Medical Director

    Dr. Lofgran makes all the medical decisions for the residents at the Center. Upon admission, vital signs are monitored and a Clinical Institute Withdrawal Assessment (CIWA) is completed if necessary. After the initial evaluation, any necessary medications are placed in lockup and are taken by the resident under the supervision of a member of the treatment team. The resident enters treatment activities as soon as initial assessment is completed, during the first day of residency. Laboratory work is available, if indicated by medical assessment. Additional medical care will be given according to individual needs. These services are optional and it is the patient's responsibility to pay for them.
