A Guide for Worksite Wellness.
| • Medical Detox -
If a loved one wants help, overdoses or is arrested, he/she will either
detox in jail, without medical assistance, or in a hospital with personnel
who are usually untrained to help with detox. He/she will likely suffer,
perhaps unnecessarily, and could even die.
• More Residential Treatment - Most often a residential program is 30 days and is grossly insufficient as well as a waste of time and money unless it is combined with local services. Residential treatment is a vital treatment requirement for those severely addicted. However, everyday in the state of Kentucky, we are short 300 treatment beds, meaning those who want or need help may wait weeks or months for help.
• Assistance Programs - Coordination of assistance programs with mental health services and drug and alcohol treatment facilities to provide food, clothing, housing, and health care.
