What is Medical Detox?
The National Institute for Drug Abuse says medical detox “safely manages the acute physical symptoms of withdrawal associated with stopping drug use.” Nevertheless, initiating the process of eliminating harmful substances from your body can be intimidating.. In fact, individuals who seek medical detoxification often need long-term counseling, individual and family therapy, and other social services to help them get back on their feet. However, we are confident that the benefits of cultivating a healthier and more fulfilling life far outweigh the challenges.
During inpatient detoxification, patients who meet the admission criteria will be safely monitored 24 hours a day in a controlled environment by the medical experts at our facilities. Along with a physical health screening, we provide a psychosocial assessment, individual and group therapy, detox and anti-craving medications (MAT) as needed, and evidence-based stabilization support before the process is complete.
From the moment you arrive you will be treated with kindness, compassion and respect as we take steps to thoroughly prepare you for lifelong sobriety once you return home.
Your length of stay will vary based on your needs, but the average patient’s time in physical detoxification ranges between 72 hours and six days. Meanwhile, our staff will help you develop a care plan which might include referrals to community, educational, legal, and social services - all designed to help you regain stability after detox.
