Physical & Pre-Admission Preparation

Avoiding That Last Binge

Avoiding That Last Binge

If possible, we encourage you to avoid that last binge. In some cases this is not possible, but some abstinence prior to admission is helpful for the treatment process. When you come to alcohol or drug rehab, a detoxification process can be required to get you stabilized from your drug or drink of choice. Detox for residents at Cirque Lodge takes place at the Studio or an affiliated facility. This can require extended treatments and a lengthier detox if you are more deeply under the influence of a final binge. Also when you binge, you run the risk of overdose which amplifies the medical problems even further.

With chemical dependency, you also run the risk of withdrawal when you are not using or drinking. That is why some of us continue to abuse drugs and alcohol: because we become sick and feel terrible when we stop using. We advise those coming to addiction treatment to not change anything related to their normal dosing or alcohol volume prior to admission. You should not try to taper off or stop using any more than you normally do until you are under the proper care of a physician or detoxification provider.

Seeing Your Doctor (Medical Preparations)

It is also beneficial to visit and consult with your healthcare advisor prior to entering an alcohol or drug rehabilitation center. Your doctor can help you with medication concerns and can even recommend treatment providers and facilities. If you have already made the decision to enter a drug or alcohol treatment program, you can see your doctor about receiving any of the physical examinations that may be required for residential treatment.

We ask those preparing medically for rehab at Cirque Lodge to take some time and fill out our Pre-admission Intake Assessment Form online. This form dives into the deeper details of your medical and medication history, as well as your addiction treatment needs. We use the confidential information you provide us with this assessment to develop a personalized treatment approach tailored to your unique case when you come to our facility.

Packing (What do I need?)

Packing (What do I need?)

Do not get too stressed out about what you need to bring. Many clients retreat to us comfortably with just a week’s worth of season-appropriate clothing, comfortable shoes, and a few other documents and necessities. Cirque Lodge provides a number of items for you while you stay with us and any little odds or ends can be purchased for you at a local store. We ask that you look over our checklist of things to bring. It also lists the things you should avoid while packing for rehab.
