Our comprehensive treatment program provides participants with the caring, ongoing support and medical attention they need to understand the disease of chemical dependency and make the transition to recovery. To meet each person’s individual needs, Alta Bates Summit Merritt Peralta Institute (MPI) offers a wide range of services and treatment options.
Assessment, Evaluation and Referral
The MPI treatment experience begins with a free and confidential, comprehensive assessment conducted by an MPI assessment counselor. The MPI counselor uses diagnostic and placement criteria developed by the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) to match the patient with the appropriate level of care. Our team also verifies insurance requirements.
For many people, physician-supervised detoxification is the first step in the treatment process.
Rehabilitation: Inpatient and Residential
After detoxification, rehabilitation is the next step. We offer inpatient rehabilitation to people with ongoing medical issues. People who don’t require the same level of medical intervention participate in our residential rehabilitation program.
Most people stay in the rehabilitation program from one to four weeks, depending on their needs and insurance authorization. Both inpatient and residential program participants have access to a doctor and receive 24-hour nursing care. Each participant works directly with MPI’s experienced staff of medical professionals and chemical dependency counselors to develop a customized treatment plan tailored to their specific needs, abilities, strengths and preferences.
This part of the program includes all daily program activities and components of our inpatient and residential programs. Participants in our day treatment program meet from 8:30 am – 4:30 pm, six days a week for four weeks.
