Comprehensive Psychiatric Evaluations
Each individual’s needs are different. These needs are targeted with comprehensive and thorough psychiatric, medical and clinical evaluations provided to each patient during their stay at Villa San Miguel. A robust range of assessment tools are vital in identifying and treating specific problems to ensure treatment success.
Medical Assessments and Monitoring
We utilize the American Society of Addiction Medicine criteria to determine the placement, continued stay, transfer or discharge of patients with addiction and co-occurring conditions. The ASAM criteria is one of several assessment tools Villa San Miguel uses to determine medical and psychiatric acuity. Upon arrival, each patient will meet with our trained medical staff and receive a full medical evaluation to examine withdrawal symptoms, physical health, and medical history. We utilize calculated withdrawal scales to measure each withdrawal symptom’s severity. The Clinical Institute Withdrawal Assessment for Alcohol, commonly abbreviated as CIWA or CIWA-Ar (revised version), is a 10-item scale used in the assessment and management of alcohol withdrawal. In addition to the CIWA scale, Villa San Miguel references the Clinical Opiate Withdrawal Scale (COWS) to measure the severity of a patient’s opiate withdrawal symptoms. These withdrawal tools are integrated into medication management and monitoring to reduce any discomfort related to detox symptoms. Patients will meet with psychiatric staff to address underlying mental health or co-occurring conditions that may present. A licensed will meet with patients to develop effective treatment plan options. In addition to this, our case management team will work closely with each patient to assist with coordination of continuum of care and discharge planning to provide effective care post detox.
