Detoxification is often the first step to addressing alcohol or substance use. The Crisis Stabilization program offers opioid, alcohol and benzodiazepine detoxification to those who are actively withdrawing from drugs or alcohol and demonstrate commitment to long-term drug or alcohol treatment upon discharge. If the consumer expresses that they have no plans to enter long-term treatment upon completing the detoxification process or has had previous detoxification admissions with failure to follow-up with drug or alcohol treatment, admission for detoxification may not be approved.
Additionally, if a referral has been actively utilizing alcohol and would likely obtain a Breathalyzer result of .08 or higher, then medical clearance will need to be obtained to ensure the consumer’s safety and competence level to consent to treatment. The consumer will be admitted to the CSU once a Breathalyzer result is obtained that is lower than .08.

The LEARN Program is a residential treatment program for men ages 18 and older who are experiencing difficulties in several areas of their life due to substance use. The length of stay is individually determined. Generally, this option is reserved for men who have a weak support system in place to assist in their recovery planning. They may not have friends and family who do not use or who will choose to be in their life at the present time. They are likely experiencing difficulty with finances, work, family, and perhaps health. They may have tried other forms of treatment or tried to quit on their own with little success. The program provides a structured environment, individual and group counseling services daily, and assistance with building a substance-free lifestyle. The staff is highly qualified and the program includes a complete assessment, detox if needed, and treatment for any other physical or mental health disorders. When a wait list is in place, preference is given to men who are injecting drugs of abuse.

The program is a smoke-free community, but a smoking cessation specialist and smoking cessation assists are available to help women as they adjust to a smoke-free environment. Women who are pregnant have a choice (made with their doctor’s input) to slowly taper off opiates if that is the drug of choice, or to use Medication Assisted Treatment (Subutex) while in residential treatment to minimize the impact of drug use on the development of the fetus. Turning Pointe staff have a close relationship with the OBGYN Clinic (through Access Health) and with Raleigh General Hospital’s neonatal and labor and delivery staff. The health of both mom and her baby are a key goal of the program.

Intensive outpatient treatment is an excellent option for those whose substance use is beginning to interfere with some aspects of their life, such as their job, family or financial situation, but who feel they live in a supportive environment. This allows you to remain at home, yet get a more intense treatment experience than just attending individual therapy or support groups. The length of stay is determined on an individual basis and is available to men, women, and pregnant women who are 18 years of age and older. This program also provides access to medical and psychiatric services as needed.

Outpatient services (ASAM Level of Care 1) are available to individuals who are able to access appropriate supports in their community, and may be working or have family obligations. Therapy services are provided at a level which is appropriate for the individual, but typically are weekly and include a combination of group and individual therapy sessions. Clients who have been using substances such as opiates, benzodiazepines, and/or alcohol may be offered participation in a withdrawal management program before outpatient services are started.
Any person interested in outpatient services can contact FMRS at 304-256-7100, or come to FMRS during open access intake times which are 7:45am and 12:30pm Monday through Friday.
