Types of Detoxification

The detoxification centers that we refer our clients to offer the most comfortable detoxification experience possible. This detox occurs under strict medical supervision.

Alcohol Detox

During alcohol detoxification, it is critical that a safe and medically monitored environment is provided. Medical supervision is required to avoid any medical complications such as seizures. The first step in alcohol addiction treatment is to remove the alcohol from our client’s system. This restores clarity and enables treatment of any underlying medical, emotional, or psychological issues supporting the addiction. Alcohol detoxification may require as little as a few days, to as long as 5 or more. Detox length depends on a number of factors including history and severity of heavy drinking, as well as health status.

Drug Detox

The most common barrier to starting drug detoxification is fear of the pain and discomfort associated with withdrawal. Whether it’s prescription drugs, opiates and opioids, heroin, or combinations of drugs and alcohol, modern medical protocols will be used to manage the discomfort of withdrawal. Drug detoxification can range from 7 days to 14 days. The length depends on a number of factors including drug of choice, history, severity of use, and health status.
