What is the policy on tobacco use?

We are a tobacco-free and nicotine-free facility.

Do we offer medical detoxification services?

Transformations Center for Healing is not a medical facility and does not have medical personnel on staff. Therefore, we have strict rules regarding admitting individuals in active withdrawal. Due to the medical risk associated with alcohol or benzodiazepines, individuals must be medically detoxed from these substances at a medical facility prior to being admitted to Transformations. It is required that residents must present a medical release stating that they have completed medical detoxification and/or are not currently in active withdrawal from these substances.

Admitting individuals for all other substances is left to the discretion of Transformations’ staff based on the outcome of the intake assessment.

Can I bring my prescription or non-prescription drugs?

Due to the holistic, non-medication structure of Transformations’ program, residents are not permitted to take any psychotropic or narcotic medications at any time. The following is a list of approved medications.

  • Pain Reliever - Tylenol, Naproxen, Ibuprofen, Excedrin
  • Stomach Medication - Prilosec OTC, Nexium, Prevacid, Tums, Rolaids, Pepto Bismol
