Detox is the First Step to Freedom from Addiction.
Confidential Medically-Assisted Detox for San Jose Residents
Any history of heavy drug use means it is important to experience the detoxification process in a comfortable environment; supervised by medical professionals 24 hours/day.
Support Systems Homes has medically assisted detox. We provide confidential treatment for individuals with drug addictions; including high functioning addicts and alcoholics.
To safely manage opiate withdrawal symptoms, Support Systems Homes has a medication assisted detox option, using buprenorphine (Subutex®, Suboxone®).
Detox From Heroin, Painkillers and Other Drugs
For a successful detox, you will need cutting-edge protocols, expert clinical personnel, a safe and supportive environment; and an introduction to the principles of recovery.
Support Systems Homes provides a safe and effective recovery environment for all who are willing to change their lives.
What’s Buprenorphine? An FDA Approved Detox Medication
Buprenorphine is an FDA-approved product used to help opiate addicts recover. It comes in two forms: Subutex® and a buprenorphine/naloxone product called Suboxone®.
Subutex® and Suboxone® are currently the only Schedule III, IV, or V medications to have received FDA approval for detoxification from opiates.
Easing Withdrawal Symptoms, Preparing You for Rehab
Buprenorphine is an opioid partial agonist. At low doses, buprenorphine produces enough of an effect to help you discontinue opiate use without experiencing withdrawal symptoms.
The effects of buprenorphine increase with larger doses of the drug until they plateau at a moderate dose. Then the effects do not increase anymore. This is the “ceiling effect” that makes buprenorphine a useful drug for rehabilitation purposes.
In high doses and under certain circumstances, buprenorphine can actually block the effects of full opioid agonists (e.g. heroin). It can even blunt withdrawal symptoms if administered to an addict while the drug of abuse is still in the bloodstream.
Will this Detox Method Work for Me?
If you have been diagnosed with an addiction to opiates (heroin, prescription painkillers, etc.), are willing to follow safety precautions at a drug rehab center, and have a desire to get clean, then Support Systems Homes can help you on your road to recovery. The medically-assisted detox course is the safest and easiest type of detoxification process to undergo.
First, you’ll be tested to make sure you’ll have no bad reactions to buprenorphine treatment. Once we’re sure you’ll be safe, our medical professionals administer the detox medication and stay with you. Once detox completes, we follow it with a review of our treatment options for you to select.
How Are Subutex and Suboxone Administered?
Subutex® and Suboxone are both sublingual tablets. They are placed and dissolved under the tongue.
Medication Safety Concerns
Because of its ceiling effect, buprenorphine is a safe method of detoxification from more dangerous opiates like heroin. Use of Subutex or Suboxone must be monitored by specifically qualified doctors.
Drug Rehab and Addiction Recovery for the San Jose Area
Support Systems Homes (SSH) is an internationally accredited, state-licensed substance abuse treatment program dedicated to the innovative and cost-effective treatment of chemical dependency (drug/alcohol addiction).
Based in Northern California, our San Jose rehab facilities provide a comprehensive structure of detox and rehab treatment services; including residential rehab, outpatient rehab, day intensive treatment, relapse prevention, legal advocacy services, aftercare and family education, and sober living environments.
Drug Rehab Supervision and Success
Support Systems Homes expert clinical and counseling staff provide the services necessary to help clients achieve long-term recovery from your addiction. Our residential drug treatment programs have proven success in treating thousands of addicts and alcoholics over more than two decades.
Learn a Sober, Happy Lifestyle
Our residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs are meant to help clients learn how to achieve and sustain long-term sobriety. The staff works with each patient to develop life skills that will not only assist them during an initial stabilization period but well beyond it.
With the help of our counseling team, patients develop individualized treatment plans and plans to support them after program completion. To make sure you have positive results, we base our services and treatment interventions on promising, proven practices in the field.
Family members are encouraged to take part in the treatment process, as appropriate. Family members are also encouraged to attend our family education program.
Continual Recovery Support
You’re well taken care of in our residential facilities. Our clinical team consists of nurses, counselors, clinical supervisory personnel, and a consulting American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) certified physician.
Support Systems Homes Residential Drug Rehab
Our residential drug treatment program includes assessments and evaluations from qualified and skilled clinicians, legal system advocacy (when needed), counseling, individualized treatment planning, transition planning, medication monitoring, family programs, meals, and free lifetime aftercare upon graduation.
Support Systems Homes Outpatient Drug Rehab
Have you finished residential rehab – but feel like you could use more support? Or maybe, you’re looking for a treatment program that fits with your work or school schedule?
The ultimate goal of our outpatient treatment program is long-term abstinence from drugs and alcohol. We help you achieve it via education and treatment so you can re-enter society and lead a responsible, successful drug- and alcohol-free life.
Support Systems Homes offers flexible, multi-level outpatient rehab programs for clients who are stabilized in terms of their addictions, but who are seeking a less-intensive treatment option than a residential treatment program.
This level of care is an excellent choice for those who work, attend school, or have similar commitments.
Continuing Addiction Recovery Treatment Solutions
Support Systems Homes state-certified and CARF-accredited outpatient program is designed for clients who do not require – or who have completed – detoxification, residential treatment, or day treatment.
Outpatient groups are offered several times throughout the week during the day or at night, depending on individual needs. The length of time in the program depends on the individual and can be up to 90 days (more if needed).
Outpatient treatment gives you the opportunity to interact in a real world environment while benefiting from a peer-oriented, structured therapeutic program. Progress along your individual treatment plan is assessed regularly by clinical staff. Safe, supportive living in our sober living homes is highly recommended during the outpatient treatment process. (Residence in one of our sober living homes is not required for program participation.)
Graduates from the outpatient treatment program are welcome in our aftercare groups and alumni association. These groups help you with ongoing recovery support.
