Adult & Teen Challenge MidSouth Dental/Medical/Drug Withdrawal Policy
Due to the fact that Adult & Teen Challenge MidSouth is NOT a medical facility, the following policies have been enacted:
It is STRONGLY ADVISED that residents get a dental check-up prior to entering the program! Residents enrolled in our program WILL NOT have access to a dentist for at least 4 months except for emergencies. In the event of an emergency, the resident’s family will be responsible for any medical costs. If a resident in the program requires on-going dental treatment, they will be required to take a leave of absence. Once the work is completed and we receive verification, they can return to the program.
Residents will only have access to medical care in case of emergencies. Residents that have a pre-existing condition or a condition that develops while enrolled in the program which requires on-going medical treatment will be required to take a leave of absence. We must receive medical release/ verification before they can return to the program.
Due to the fact that some withdrawal symptoms are unpleasant but some can be FATAL, severe alcoholics and those taking certain medications may require a physician’s statement that you have gone through a detox process or that you have been weaned off the medication under their supervision. If you enter the program but are not able to participate due to drug or alcohol withdrawal for more than 1-2 days, you will be required to take a leave of absence and go through a medically supervised detox. To return to the program, you would need to provide medical verification that you have done so.
