Traveling for treatment lets you take a step back from the driving forces behind your addiction, whether they are stresses, individuals, or situations. Choosing to receive treatment in your local area can make it difficult to focus on what is most important, which is your recovery.
Detoxification or “detox” is an important part of the recovery process because it removes toxins from the body caused by chemical dependency. Our safe, medically-supervised detox allows you or your loved one to go through the detox process in a safe, medically-monitored setting. This process typically lasts between 5-7 days and maybe unpleasant at times. However, clients can expect our staff will make detox as manageable as possible, with features including:
24/7 medical care and supervision
Individualized detox/tapering plans
Medication administered and supervised by licensed medical staff
