Choosing a Treatment Provider

Choosing a treatment provider can be difficult. The good news is that we are here to help, and we look forward to meeting you. We believe in all paths to recovery and not a one size fits all approach. We know that people have different goals for treatment.  We would like to offer you support and cooperation on your recovery journey.

Chesterfield Mental Health Support Services (MHSS) is committed to equal access to treatment. We accept most insurances. The lack of insurance is not a barrier to receiving services. We offer a sliding scale payment option which is determined by family size and income.  

We value and respect people of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions. We celebrate diversity and strive to serve our community with compassion and understanding.

What to Expect

You'll start with intake and assessment. They'll ask you about you! We know it's tough to be open with a stranger, but the more open and honest you can be, the easier it is for us to connect you to the right treatment.

After your assessment, you'll leave with an appointment to meet with your clinician. At that appointment, you'll talk about all your treatment options and make a path to recovery.

NOTE: Medications are not prescribed at the 1st or 2nd appointment.

Withdrawal, Detoxification and Residential Services

Do Not Detox at Home

We do not recommend that people try to detox on their own or stop use suddenly prior to their appointment. Detox should not be done alone, without professional medical supervision.

When someone stops using drugs and alcohol the substances leave the body and this process is called detoxification or detox. This can lead to medical problems (like high blood pressure or seizures) or lead someone to return to using substances. If someone is using alcohol or benzodiazepines (Xanax, klonopin, valium, Ativan, etc.) there are medical risks that can lead to death.

Withdrawal

Withdrawal happens to the brain and body when a person stops using drugs and/or alcohol. The symptoms of withdrawal can vary based on the drug, how much a person is using and how long they've been using. Some common symptoms are irritability and the desire to return to use.

Detox and Risk of Overdose

When someone stops using drug or alcohol their tolerance level decreases. If they return to use, they are at higher risk for a drug overdose.

Some people may benefit from a short stay in a withdrawal management unit (detox) or a longer stay in a residential program. If a client requires this level of care, we can provide connection to these services in the community.
