Drug and Alcohol Treatment at Alina Lodge

A History and Physical will need to take place before admission as well as a full Detox. See our Continuum Of Care page for details.

Detoxification is the first step toward recovery. Alina Lodge has a Detoxification Unit which is medically staffed - 24 hours a day - with ASAM certified physicians and Registered Nurses. This first phase of treatment includes a thorough assessment to ensure the individual safely overcomes the physical effects of alcohol and drug withdrawal. During detoxification we have the opportunity to address any medical concerns and begin the process of developing a personalized therapeutic relationship.

When detox is completed, the student is then ready to begin the path of recovery and rehabilitation. Our staff will help you from interventionists, detoxification, primary treatment and aftercare, providing the full continuum of care for you and your loved one.

Length of Stay

The actual length of stay is based on individual progress in treatment. The average stay is between six and nine months.

All of our students come to us have different needs and problems; therefore, our length of stay is based on each individual's progress towards specific clinical goals. We believe in the tincture of time as it allows:

  • Proper healing of the brain functions and nervous system
  • The body to become truly chemically free
  • The mind a chance to develop new mental habits
  • The practice of new behavioural skills
  • The replacement of unhealthy people, places, and things with healthy ones
  • The creation of an effective support system
  • Family relationships to begin a healing process
  • In-depth 12 Step programming & healthy social living guided by spiritual principles
