Our detox program will help you eliminate most of the physical and emotional symptoms of a drug or alcohol withdrawal and help you safely and comfortably take control of your life.
Recovery is both a psychological and physical feat, but it’s the body that needs to kick-start the process – which usually requires a detox to purge the toxic buildup of excessive drugs or alcohol. A medical detoxification does more rid the body of addictive substances, however. It eases the changeover from chemical dependence to a “clean” state by cushioning the addict from acute, painful (and sometimes, fatal) withdrawal symptoms – which can include increased blood pressure, severe muscle cramping, irregular heartbeats, seizures and hallucinations. StepHouse Recovery Center’s addiction specialists are trained to detoxify and treat a full range of substance dependencies, including (but not limited to) prescription drugs, painkillers, heroin, opiates, amphetamines, barbiturates, methamphetamines and alcohol. Under our watch, we make sure that your initial step into recovery is a safe and comfortable detox that will arm your transition into a healthy, chemically-clean lifestyle, while staving off the possibility for relapse.
Each detoxification process is unique, and depends on a variety of factors, including:
- Physical & Mental Health
- Type of Drug(s) or Alcohol
- Length & Frequency of Addiction
- Substance Dosage Upon Arrival
StepHouse Recovery Center’s detox protocol will help you eliminate most of the physical and emotional symptoms of withdrawal and help you safely and comfortably take control of your life. We will take into account your unique needs, learn about your challenges, and develop a plan of comprehensive care for your drug or alcohol detox plan, as well as the rest recovery journey. Recognizing that some clients may not be able to benefit from beginning treatment while in detox, clients are not required to participate in structured groups or other programming. However, if you are ready to begin substance abuse treatment and are cleared by our clinical team, we encourage you to begin attending groups and therapy sessions as well. For more information on substance specific symptoms, please call StepHouse Recovery Center and speak with one of our representatives.
