Substance Abuse Treatment

Withdrawal Management

Withdrawal Management

Withdrawal hurts and is unpleasant. The fear of withdrawal often is the reason many delay or refuse to seek treatment. Powell Recovery has a professional medical team who understand substance abuse disorders and are ready to support clients through this difficult point in their recovery.

Each client sees a physician or nurse practitioner upon intake for a full health assessment and evaluation of the right withdrawal management approach.

Mental Health Treatment

Recovery is hard work and building a solid foundation is critical. However, many of our clients come to Powell with no or sub-standard lodging, with little or no access to nutritional food, and no treatment of chronic or serious health issues.

  • Safe, supervised housing with scheduled house activities and tasks

  • Access to food and kitchen 3 nutritious meals daily and snacks

Outpatient Services

Outpatient Services

Some clients may come to treatment with stable housing and family support. These clients may not need the additional support and structure provided by a residential program.

Other clients successfully complete a more intensive treatment at Powell and are ready to step into a less structured setting.

For these clients, Powell Recovery offers our Outpatient Services. These services can be combined with PRC’s supportive housing, or clients may live at home with family or friends while in treatment. For those who qualify, this program also provides an option for evening treatment hours. This option may better accommodate your work or school schedule.
