In a recent addition to their Health and Wellness series of videos, Summit Behavioral Health’s Chief Operating Officer, Maria Ulmer MA, LMFT, CAADC, spoke about the types of drug and alcohol addiction treatment programs the organization offers to clients.

Ulmer reports in the video that Summit currently offers two types of inpatient treatment – medical detoxification and residential rehabilitation. The medical detox facilities are located in New Jersey and Massachusetts, and the residential rehabilitation is in Massachusetts.

Summit Behavioral Health also offers outpatient treatment for clients who cannot or choose not to attend one of their inpatient treatment programs. Ulmer explained that there are three different types of outpatient treatment available: intensive outpatient program (IOP), partial-hospitalization program (PHP), and traditional outpatient treatment which offers individual, couples, family, and group therapy for clients participating. Summit’s outpatient addiction treatment facilities are located in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

What Is Holistic And Completely Personalized Medical Detox

From the company website, Summit describes the three treatment options Ulmer spoke about in the following ways. Medical detox “is private, holistic and completely personalized for each individual. We focus on treating the physical and mental issues, but we also lay the foundation for spiritual growth.”

Summit’s residential treatment program recognizes that “long-term drug or alcohol abuse, addictions, or relapse requires more than just treatment therapies in order for the individual to overcome dependencies. In patient treatment in a residential facility has proven to be one of the most effective methods of helping individuals find long term success.”

Summit’s outpatient treatment program is recommended for “individuals who have graduated residential programming, or for individuals who require a lower level of care.”

Summit utilizes an individual approach to treatment in all of their treatments, knowing that each client is unique, to compassionately guide them through the challenging first days of sobriety through after-care and to long-lasting recovery.
