Weekly Continuing Care
This includes weekly group sessions of one and a half hours in duration. Patients in this level of care have completed an intensive program and transitioned to this level of care. It is also referred to as ASAM Level I Outpatient. Attendance is based on individual needs. Lengths of stay are varied, except for persons granted deferred prosecution – which lists a proscriptive length of stay in this level of care.
ASAM 5 is not a therapy session. In most cases, persons in this level of care are participating in these sessions as a result of taking advantage of the opportunities afforded alcoholic, drug-dependent patients, or those with mental illnesses. It is an alternative to punishment under RCW 10.05 Deferred Prosecution.
Medically Monitored Detoxification Programs
Under the care and supervision of medical professionals, Barth Clinic staff assists individuals and families with appropriate physician referrals, placement in sub-acute detoxification units or hospitalization, as well as medication management with other licensed professionals.
