Canton Potsdam Hospital Rehabilitation for Addiction is the only hospital-based detoxification service north of the New York State Thruway and have seven beds which can accommodate patients. Detox services are geared toward five-day methadone taper. Patients/clients may be self-referred or referred by a provider. Patients/clients must meet stringent criteria for admission. Behavioral Health Service provides outpatient chemical dependency evaluations, intensive outpatient programming (three hours, three days per week), chemical dependency groups, as well as inpatient chemical dependency rehabilitation, and outpatient psychiatric counseling and/or medical management. These services are available to those who may not meet the criteria for inpatient detox or for whom an inpatient stay is not appropriate. Assessment of a client's needs is individualized and based on many factors; decisions are made based on space available, whether or not a patient/client is in significant withdrawal, or whether a patient/client has a current use requiring a medically monitored or supervised withdrawal. All counselors and medical providers are certified and experienced in treating addictions.
