Medical Detoxification


Inpatient Acute Detoxification

The Poplar Unit at Woodridge Hospital is a 26-bed inpatient treatment unit serving East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia and is dedicated to providing acute detoxification from chemicals while being medically supervised.

The treatment team is led by the attending physician Dr. Hetal Brahmbhatt and consists of nurse practitioners, registered nurses, therapists, discharge planners, and behavioral health technicians.

Inpatient detoxification treatment

Daily group therapy is provided on the unit in addition to off unit activity therapies. The treatment includes:

  • Introductory 12-step meetings
  • Cognitive behavioral health therapy
  • Individual, marital and family therapy

The detoxification process includes medications to help patients cope with withdrawal and to aid them to be as comfortable as possible while going through this process.


Patients are allowed visitation at designated times, which will be included in the handbook provided on admission, along with other important unit-specific information.

Intensive outpatient program

The Woodridge Hospital Intensive Outpatient Program provides intensive support and focused treatment when traditional outpatient treatment is not enough.

The treatment team consists of two full-time master’s level therapists, an RN case manager and a psychiatrist that oversees all admissions, psychiatric evaluations and medication management.

Outpatient detoxification approach

We offer a combination of psychotherapy, education and medication management. This program is also designed for individuals who are just transitioning out of inpatient care.

Groups are provided 3 days a week for 3 hours at a time for approximately 6 to 8 weeks. The treatment plan is developed by a devoted and specialized behavioral health treatment team in partnership with the client.

Addiction recovery

Addiction recovery is also addressed by our Intensive Outpatient Program and is designed for individuals who have significant problems with alcohol, drugs and other addictions. The treatment philosophy embraces abstinence and the 12-Step Recovery Model.

Morning and evening groups

The Woodridge Hospital Intensive Outpatient Program offers two different groups to accommodate client schedules:

  • The morning group meets Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
  • The evening group meets Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

These groups target both mental health and substance abuse issues.
