Upon admission

Upon admission to any of the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation inpatient programs, patients spend their first 24 hours in the medical services unit undergoing routine medical screening and becoming familiar with the facility and the medical staff. This intake period begins the assessment and evaluation process. For patients entering inpatient care, the assessment and evaluation results determine their treatment plan and approximate length of stay.

Patients are assigned a "buddy" from their peer group who will help them get comfortable and become involved with the various activities of the center. Patients on the treatment units live four to a room. All residents have a role in the miscellaneous "housekeeping" chores of the unit.
 

Nicotine-Free campus information

Our Plymouth facility is a nicotine-free campus. Consumption is not permitted in the building or on the grounds by patients, staff, parents or other visitors.

Nicotine addiction is treated along with other drugs of abuse. We incorporate individual counseling, recovery groups, and lectures that focus on nicotine recovery into the patient's addiction treatment plan. Withdrawal needs are assessed by our medical staff and treated with Nicotine Replacement Therapy and prescription anti-craving medication when needed.

Patient daily schedules

Daily schedules are highly structured with patients attending morning lectures and group, and participating in a variety of afternoon activities that could include one-to-one counseling time, special topic groups dealing with issues such as anger or grief, group recreation activities on-site or through field trips, high school classes for patients needing school, or individual time to work on treatment assignments such as assigned readings or videos.

Evening schedules include lecture or AA meetings, various unit government meetings, evening meditation and organized social or recreational events. Planned recreation off-site, movies, bowling, or museums, are an integral part of the treatment process allowing young people to learn how to have fun without using chemicals and introducing them to sober options for entertainment and fitness.
