What is the cost of home detox
Home detox involves initial intake on the phone or in person by our staff, patient evaluation by our physician and diagnostic for definite diagnosis and to evaluate feasibility and ensure safety of home detox.
If patient is determined to be a candidate for home detox, he/she be seen in our office on daily basis, initial treatment is started in our office and patient is observed in office for couple of hours. Then patient is sent home with a sober family member or significant other with an app on patient's phone or iPad which can be used to connect patient with our reception, nurse and doctor. In order to provide this extensive service and to keep a receptionist, nurse and doctor to be on calls costs us which is transferred to patient. In short, home detox is a concierge practice model and costs patients.
Again, there is no compulsion to avail this service and patient can opt to go to area hospitals for acute detox and we be happy to see them on out patient basis which is mostly covered by insurances.
