DHCS Level 3.2 Clinically Managed Residential Withdrawal Management, sometimes referred to as “social detoxification”, is an organized service that is delivered by appropriately trained staff. Level 3.2 Clinically Managed Residential Withdrawal Management is provided under 24-hour supervision, observation, and support for clients who are intoxicated or experiencing withdrawal. Services provided under this Level of Care are characterized by an emphasis on peer and social support rather than medical or nursing care. This Level of Care provides care for clients whose intoxication and/or withdrawal signs and symptoms are sufficiently severe to require 24-hour structure and support for 3-5 days.

Medication Services and Monitoring: The administration of medication related to substance use disorder treatment services and/or the assessment of the side effects and results of that medication. Medication Services include the safeguarding of medications and referrals for Medication Assisted Treatments (MAT) for alcohol and opioid abusers unless the client refuses such referrals.

Discharge Services: All clients are provided with ongoing support, case management, and assistance in the development of a continuing care/after care/ discharge plan. This includes preparing the client for referral and linkage into another level of care, post-treatment return and re-entry into the community, and/or the linkage of the client to community treatment, housing, and other services.
