What is StepOne Service™?
The StepOne Service™ is an inpatient, hospital-based, three-to-five-day acute withdrawal management service for adults who require medical management of withdrawal symptoms from alcohol or opioids. The self-referral service is provided in a local hospital setting in partnership with Evergreen Healthcare Partners, LLC.
Who is StepOne Service™ For?
The StepOne Service™ is available to adults who are in the impending or early stages of acute withdrawal at the time of their voluntary admission to the hospital. The goal is to medically assist them through the withdrawal process and help navigate the transition to an appropriate level of community-based addiction treatment that can address the underlying causes of substance use disorder.
How Does the StepOne Service™ Work?
Around-the-clock medical care is provided by the hospital’s team and nurses who are trained on the StepOne Service™. The clinical team monitors each patient and uses protocol-specific medications to reduce the severity of withdrawal symptoms during the first step of the individual’s treatment.
