PBOD Intake Process
Medical detoxification takes place at Palm Beach Outpatient Detox (P.B.O.D) and most clients can begin detox within hours after contacting us. Dr. Steven Scanlan takes a very personalized approach to our detoxification programs. We offer several types of detox formats which include opiate detoxification programs utilizing buprenorphine (subutex®/suboxone®) to manage opiate withdrawal symptoms. Buprenorphine is a synthetic opiate agonist medication that has been approved by the FDA for treatment of opiate addiction. It enables Dr. Scanlan to offer a detoxification protocol for heroin addiction, methadone, oxycontin (oxycodone), vicodin (hydrocodone) and other similar narcotics which minimize the discomfort normally associated with detoxing from these highly addictive substances. The client can continue to work and carry on activities of daily living without major or significant impairment. Dr. Scanlan is a Certified Suboxone Provider. Other programs include outpatient detox from alcohol and benzodiazepines.
During our prescreening procedure, we will help you to select the best recovery program based on your medical history, history of addiction and personality type.
PBOD is committed to protecting your privacy. We follow strict HIPPA regulations and will sign a confidentiality agreement with each patient which guarantees that no information about the patient or their treatment will be disclosed to any person or agency without the patient's express written permission. We are committed to protecting your privacy.
On your first visit you will be asked to review our HIPAA compliance form and sign that you have been provided with the form and reviewed it. We may also be asking you to sign a release of information from your previous healthcare provider, should you desire your records to be transferred to our facility. We will also ask for you to complete a patient medical history form and patient registration form. We are committed to protecting your privacy.
