| Setting the Stage for Long-Term Success in Sobriety!
To so many drug addicts and alcoholics out there, the prospect of entering a drug rehab center or sober living/recovery housing environment is greatly hindered by the fear of withdrawal symptoms, often referred to as “detox.” And given the enormous rise in heroin and opiate & opioid painkiller abuse over the past decade or so, this fear of detox has grown to unparalleled proportions!
Medical detoxification is a process that enables those addicted to drugs and/or alcohol to safely ween or titrate their bodies from the physical dependence built up over time. The medical detox process can entail a number of clinical and ancillary therapies, some of the more common being; Suboxone, Subutex and Vivitrol. Thanks to such advanced medical solutions, the days of horrific withdrawal symptoms are, in large part, behind us!
When a patient first begins the medical detox process, there are a number of important steps to take in order to ensure safety, efficacy and a higher likelihood for long-term success in recovery. The important thing to remember is that medical detoxification is intended to be a very temporary process. Moreover, patients are far more likely to achieve long-term sobriety when they follow it up with some type of structured residential recovery environment. Unfortunately however, many drug addicts and alcoholics fall victim to the fallacy that simply going through a 5 to 7 day detox process, with nothing else to follow, will result in long-term recovery from addiction. That is almost never the case!
Medical detoxification is most commonly sought out among those with addictions to such things as: heroin, alcohol, opioid/opiate painkillers (Vicodin, Percocet, Oxycontin, Morphine, etc.), methadone and benzodiazepines such as Xanax and Valium. Although detox can be very beneficial for many other drugs out there, and can actually improve the individual’s chances for long-term success in recovery.
Medical detoxification and management of Suboxone, Subutex and Vivitrol regimens is a process that absolutely requires substantial expertise. In fact, drugs like Suboxone, for instance, can only be prescribed by physicians holding a certain type of license from the DEA. As such, medical detox services throughout the Ann Arbor, Michigan area are most commonly available through high priced medical or inpatient-residential drug rehab type settings. To many however, this type of approach simply isn’t an option…
Structured Living, LLC provides an affordable medical detox solution that enables men and women ages 18 and up to receive medical detoxification while in a safe, structured and supportive environment. We have designated certain sober living residences and addiction recovery homes throughout Ann Arbor, MI that have been specifically set up for those in the detox phase of addiction or alcoholism treatment. Each location provides far greater oversight by a more specialized staff, while simultaneously providing expanded Suboxone and Vivitrol therapy options.
COST: Clients in our medical detox homes are often able to utilize their private PPO medical insurance plans as payment for the clinical portion of services, such as doctor visits, prescription medication (i.e., Suboxone, Vivitrol, etc.) and outpatient treatment (highly recommended during detox and early sobriety). The monthly housing cost portion of $725 is not an insurance covered expense however. The reason for the higher housing pricing at our detox locations has to do with the increased oversight and other additional services provided.

Through our broad network of DEA license Suboxone physicians, as well our public and private health insurance acceptability options, what we offer is truly unique!
