Substance Abuse Walk-In Program
Patients with substance abuse (alcohol or chemical) arrive at their convenience
and are directed to the unit where they are welcomed and registered by
the unit secretary. Patients are taken to an inviting and comfortable
waiting room with a television, recovery related literature and light
refreshments. All substance abuse patients are then evaluated by a registered
nurse and clinician. Once a comprehensive evaluation is complete, the
team will work with the patient to process their immediate admission to
the Detox Unit or coordinate a referral to the appropriate level of care.
For patients found to be in need of co-occurring services, the Walk-In
and Central Evaluations and Referral Department staff will coordinate
care and process a direct admission to the Adult Voluntary Psychiatric
Inpatient Unit (ACIS) in Boonton. In this unit, patients can receive inpatient
detox treatment comfortably under the care of the medical and psychiatric
team in an environment with enhanced safety regulations.
