Cherry Hill Detoxification Services Program consists of two complimentary components
and are located on the Fairmont Hospital grounds.
Cherry Hill’s Sobering Unit is a 50 bed, co-ed facility,
staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year. Our sobering Unit
was specifically designed to assist those needing immediate sobering services
for a briefer visit of 23 hours or less. At our sobering Unit we have a central
telephone screening process for both detoxification and sobering services. The
central telephone screening process is designed to allow trained staff to assess
appropriate placement of individuals to sobering or detox services.
Cherry Hill’s Detox Unit is a Social Model 32 bed residential
program serving men and women who are withdrawing from the effects of alcohol
or drug use. Clients are constantly monitored by trained staff and are referred
for medical or psychiatric services as needed. Approximately 50% of Cherry Hill’s
clients have co-occurring mental illness. In addition to ensuring the client’s
safe withdrawal our staff will work with each client to assess the clients needs
and goals. The client is then referred to the appropriate level of treatment and
supportive services which may include, housing, medical or psychiatric services,
job training, etc. The average stay is from 4 to 6 days.
Cherry Hill Detoxification Services Program is specifically
designed to meet the needs of Alameda County Communities, including Law Enforcement,
Hospital Emergency Departments, Alcohol and Drug Treatment Programs, Medical/Psychiatric
clinics, Community CBO’s and individual community members.
Cherry Hill Detoxification Services Program has a toll free
telephone number 1-866-866-7496 and can be called 24 hours a day for assessment
to our services, crisis support and telephone referral services.
