Medical Detoxification Unit
We offer 24/7 admissions. Call us at 603-622-3020 to schedule an admission or for more information.
The Farnum Center’s Medical Detoxification offers 24-hour medically monitored care and supervision provided by a professional staff consisting of a medical director, nurses, Master Level Alcohol and Drug counselors and Licensed Mental Health clinicians and an admission coordinator.
The Medical Detoxification will serve persons 18 and older needing help to safely and medically stop using alcohol and other drugs. Days needed in detox range from 5-7 days with the average length of stay being 6 days. The daily rate of treatment is $600. The cost of treatment may be covered through insurance or private pay. A written order from the primary doctor regarding all the medications the client is currently taking is necessary.
Once screened and accepted a specific medical treatment plan will be developed according to the established protocols for each drug and/or combination they are using. Part of the protocol is the frequency of monitoring of withdrawal symptoms. If problems are detected and a medical emergency is a possibility the patient would be transferred to CMC for any intervention that may be needed; this is not covered by Farnum Center.
The detoxification process consists of three essential components: evaluation, stabilization, and fostering patient readiness for and entry into treatment.
The Medical Detoxification unit will be working closely with area hospital emergency rooms that receive individuals presenting with the need of detoxification. If assessed to need inpatient help they usually get treated on a psychiatric unit within the hospital. We will help alleviate that problem by offering a lesser level of care more appropriate to the needs of the individual.
Referrals may also come from family members, EAP Programs, other treatment facilities and courts.

Evaluation serves as the basis for the initial substance abuse treatment plan upon completion of detoxification.
