Promoting employee wellness is a primary concern for most employers. Yet many employees suffer in silence with substance use disorders and mental health conditions and don’t seek treatment. This may lead to lost days of work, reduced revenue, and decreased morale among the workforce.
How many employees have substance use disorders and mental health conditions?
According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), nearly 11 million — or 1 in 10 — full-time workers have substance use disorder. The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) reports that 7.9 million individuals have a dual diagnosis of substance use disorder and a mental health condition, like depression or anxiety.
Shame is one of the major reasons why less than 10 percent of people with substance use disorders seek treatment. That’s why, as an employer, it’s important that employee wellness is promoted and that employee assistance programs include the provision of addiction and mental health services including screening, support, education, treatment referral, and follow-up care.
By providing comprehensive wellness packages, employers destigmatize mental health conditions and substance use disorders and provide support to employees who need it most.
Gallus Medical Detox has extensive experience in helping employees and executives successfully and comfortably detox within a short period of time. We provide a customized, pain-free, and comprehensive detoxification service that, unlike other detox services, allows individuals to remain connected to their work and other commitments during their stay.
We are so proud of our method of detoxification that we called it The Gallus Method.
The Gallus Method of Detox
We use proprietary, evidence-based medical protocols (The Gallus Method) that prioritize our patients’ comfort and safety to guide them through the detox process smoothly.
The Gallus Method was developed by Gallus Detox Centers founder Dr. Patrick Gallus. As an expert in medical detox, he became deeply concerned that detox facilities throughout the country routinely used outdated and even dangerous methods for detoxification and lacked the clinical expertise to put patient safety at the forefront of their services. Many of these facilities did not use safeguards to monitor a patient’s well-being, like full cardiac and video monitoring.
This is why Dr. Gallus emphasizes medical safety and patient comfort at the heart of our treatment protocol. He devised a proprietary method — The Gallus Method — utilizing a number of key features, making our treatment superior and more effective than many other detox facilities:
- Joint Commission-accredited, ASAM Level III. 7-D: Medically monitored inpatient detoxification
- IV therapy to manage withdrawal symptoms comfortably
- Cardiac and video monitoring to ensure patient safety
- Daily visits with physicians
- Highly qualified nurses with detox and intensive care experience
- 24×7 medical staffing
- Our personalized treatment is delivered in a safe and peaceful environment that promotes optimum comfort and ease, with private rooms that include queen bed, free secure WiFi, the use of personal electronics, and a 40” TV in every room
- A tailored biopsychosocial evaluation that identifies a patient’s next steps and resources in achieving long-term recovery
Our board-certified physicians have extensive critical care and addiction experience, unique knowledge of how drugs move within the body (pharmacokinetics), and expertise in managing other co-occurring disorders and other physical illnesses. We understand that each patient’s needs are unique, which is why our plans are individualized and evidence-based.
Our patient satisfaction scores reflect our clinical excellence and superior care.
“The basis of our theory is to treat each individual patient safely, with respect and dignity, in a timely manner. Our facility provides you a physically safe and emotionally hopeful environment to continue on to your next phase of recovery. Claiming to operate a world-class detox facility is a bold statement. My staff and I stand by this statement and truly believe we have achieved this at Gallus Detox. You will immediately see and feel the differences at Gallus Detox Centers.”
