Detox Program

Detoxification is one of the most important first steps to sobriety. Upon arrival, our nursing staff will get you settled in, and our MD will supervise a full medical evaluation. From there, our MD will create a tailored medical detox program that’s suited for your needs. For the duration of the program, our nursing staff will be available to help you manage detox and withdrawal symptoms.

What Is Medical Detox?

Detoxification is the process of naturally removing toxic substances from the body. You’re eliminating your dependency on these addictive drugs and substances, and during this process, you will likely experience some range of withdrawal symptoms. Our job is to help you safely manage these symptoms as you come off of any dependency.

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to detoxification. You may detox differently than others, which is why we first evaluate your current state and medical history to create a program that’s catered to your biology and the substances you used. We may give you comfort medications to reduce the severity of any withdrawal symptoms, and our nursing staff will be available 24/7 to provide any needed medical support during the process. As you detox, we’ll also evaluate your progress, monitor medication management, and log vitals throughout the day. Whether it’s a drug detox or an alcohol detox (or a mixture of the two), our program’s goal is to safely remove toxins from your body.

Frequently Asked Questions About Our Detox Programs

What happens during your detox program?

When you first arrive our medical will screen your physical and mental health. We’ll take blood tests to determine the amount of drugs in your body, ask you questions regarding your history of substance abuse, get an understanding of any potential mental health issues, and discuss your psychiatric history. We get you settled in, start your medical protocols, and vigilantly monitor your progress.

How long does the detox process take?

The process typically takes 2-7 days, but it can take longer depending on the substance you are detoxing from.

Is detoxing at home dangerous?

Detox at home is not recommended because you won’t be medically supervised, nor will you have access to comfort medications. Due to medical variability, we cannot guarantee complete safety, but it is far safer to detox in a clinical environment than at your home.
