While in detox, you will receive the highest quality medical care from our 24-hour nursing staff. Most of our clients come to us for help when they start to experience withdrawal symptoms from alcohol, opioids (such as oxycodone, heroin, Fentanyl, and Dilaudid), or benzodiazepines (such as Xanax and Klonopin); but rest assured that you will receive a safe and comfortable detoxification from almost any substance that you may be addicted to, including designer drugs like MDMA or Ecstasy.
We also recognize that you may have other medical issues (such as diabetes, hypertension, or other physical conditions) that may need to be addressed in addition to your chemical dependency.
Our medical doctors can evaluate you and provide treatment for your other medical needs as well as any ancillary services that you might need during your stay.

Drug detoxification rids the body of drugs, alcohol, and other harmful addictive substances. It is an important process and a significant first step in the journey to recovery. Long-term or heavy drug and alcohol use changes a person’s body chemistry, and regular use may lead to a dependence. Once a person abruptly stops or reduces their use, physical, emotional, and psychological withdrawal symptoms likely follow. A medically supervised detox is considered the safest way to manage those symptoms. Quitting cold turkey comes with risks and is not recommended.
Finding the right detox program starts with finding out what substance is being abused. Certain substances have different detox requirements as others, and detox programs vary depending on the individual. However, the overall function of detox remains the same. Understanding the nuanced issues of substance abuse is key to a successful transition from addiction to recovery.
