  • Medical Detoxification

    Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.
  • Dual Diagnosis/ Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

    These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.

So I just went to the detox that Lifeline has available. It was five days, I was detoxing off heroin. The five days flew by, thanks to the medication they give you to deal with the withdrawals. There were only a couple of things that I wish were different; just to make things more accommodating. The first is I really wish the nurses would make sure everyone got their meds each time it was med time. They have up to 4 different times that you can get meds, but there is no clock in your room to know when to go to the nurse\'s station. They do go around and say \"MED PASS\" when it\'s time but, I was so nauseous and just all around not feeling good to go sit and wait for each person to answer some questions and receive their meds. Also for the food and beverages, there wasn\'t anything bottled. There were just plastic coffee cups, so I ended up becoming really dehydrated (which is my fault obviously). I had a hard time getting out of bed and filling my small cup up with water as often as I was thirsty. Water bottles would be a lot easier. I also skipped a lot of meals because of my inability to get up at the right times. The trays for breakfast, lunch, and dinner stay out for about an hour each time. There are no clocks in the rooms though, so again it\'s hard to know when to get up to eat. On the other hand, I really liked how easy it was to get in there. I called on a Thursday and answered some questions, next day drove there, and was able to detox. The staff was really nice as well. :)

I had previously wrote of my experience but left out an important detail. DO NOT BRING CASH WITH YOU!! OR ANYTHING NICE OR OF VALUE!!!! Warning!!!!! Warning!!!!! YOUR SHITS ABOUTS TO BE TOOKIN!!! ( ODB ) I brought exactly $48.19 with me but left with only $8.19. When I checked in to detox the employee ( wish I remembered her name ) counted it with me and it totaled up to $48.19 but when I arrived on the inpatient floor I was told “you now have $7.00 and some change” The employee obviously didn’t count the single dollar bills and really didn’t care about the missing $20s I mentioned “I did have in detox” So persons/patients cannot hold onto certain items like cash themselves. ( dealers and moonshiners are always hanging at rehabs ya heard ) Now if I took someone’s belongings and told them I would keep them safe then that’s what I would and you should expect me to do, right? So anyway if you’re going into Lifeline Connections think twice about bringing cash or anything of value because apparently patients belongings “get taken or end up lost all the time, oh well” ( that’s what an employee told me anyway although two other employees did tell me to “write a concern”) WTF!!?? Also in inpatient if another resident steals your shit and like me you tell a certain staff member (P.M. ) they will just tell you “well that’s to bad isn’t it?” Apparently “they will not be doing anything about it and you better not either” I guess Marshall law is the law of the land. It’s the Wild West but without high noon standoffs. and rodeo clown staff members all day and night. Maybe in order to work there you need a rubber degree from a Clown College, whom knows not this nosey nobody. Fuck those silly bastards and their long red snouts!!! Which are normally round on clowns but “theyre liars!!“ Especially when their looking in the mirror and saying to themselves “gosh Darn it I’m special ( yes you are😉) and gee whiz people like me ( no we don’t 🤬) and I’m superfragilisticlly great!!” ( no sorry you’re not😳) yes I revised the original just because the inpatient staff at LL are special and it’s a well deserved remark. NOTE: this is silly and not so serious because I’ve relapsed and am seriously drunk right now. Deal with it. I’m sure I will be later. 😳

This is the worst facility I've ever been to. The counselors are not professional, they gave me misinformation, called me a liar, treated me disrespectfully,... horrible. The whole place is highly unorganized and it's just a joke. All they are doing is herding cattle and taking money. They are there to actually help. Not the way they treat people. So bad.
