why gallus detox centers

While American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) has levels of care, and categorizes Gallus as a 3.7, ours does not fit into this matrix.

What does this mean?

A 3.7 medical detox generally has the following criteria to met this level of care:

  • Physical assessment by a physician, PA, or Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (PRN) at admission
  • Mental status examination must be completed
  • Substance use assessment, including risk to themselves or others
  • Alcohol/drug assessment completed upon admissions to be used for an individual treatment plan
  • Appropriately licensed and credentialed staff
  • Accurate treatment plan
  • 24/7 care
  • The staffing ratio is generally approved at 6:1, staff to patient

At Gallus Medical Detox Centers, this is what all of our facilities at the same level of care our 3.7 includes:

  • A physical exam by a PRN upon patient’s admission and again every day (including weekends) with the facility’s medical director.
  • A mental status check prior to admission and daily, every day with the facility’s Clinical Director. This includes measurement based care – PHQ9 (depression ranges, BAM (brief addiction monitor), ASAM outcomes, motivational interviewing and lengthy discussions with patient, family (when appropriate), and next step treatment plan.
  • Assessments done prior to admission, first day full intake and every day to provide full outcomes data for each individual patient on a daily basis.
  • A alcohol/drug assessment (full biopsychosocial) using a life story approach (motivational interviewing) versus directed questions to allow the Clinical Director (licenced) to get the full life story and find any underlying co-occurring issues that will help with treatment plans.
  • At each facility – there are all licensed staff, Behavioral Health Technicians, Clinical Administrative Manager, ER/ICU trained nurses, Medical Director (MD) Clinical Director (meets with every patient every day).
  • Gallus offers treatment plans that begin the first day of a patient’s stay at Gallus – setting up meetings based on what you can do realistically in a patient’s life and based on their own personal story, finance needs, location, etc. Our team works with each patient to have the plan prior to discharge for warm transfer to the next level of care.
  • Our staffing is 2:1 – each patient is cared for individually
  • Full telemetry for all patients
  • IV method of detox with oral medication, which allows our team the ability to start the detox before the pain begins
  • Opioid Use Disorder patients see no to mild withdrawal due to our AMI Protocol for opioids
  • Full taper schedule for Benzodiazepine Detox aftercare planning with next provider also in agreement for best patient care
  • Private rooms, flat screen TVs in each room, and a queen sized bed for comfort
  • Food is brought in my local restaurants, menu choices by patients
  • Allow cell phones, computers, smoking, and vaping
