Our Detoxification Program
We offer a 24-hour residential (or sub-acute) detoxification and treatment service for men and women, 18 years and older, who suffer from substance use and co-occurring disorders. Our detox program is appropriate for individuals requiring monitoring of post-acute withdrawal symptoms and who are deemed appropriate for a residential level of care. This program is the critical first step of your recovery and is designed to ensure your safety and comfort during the most difficult stage of your treatment which also includes a comprehensive evaluation and individualized treatment plan.
The path to recovery needs to be walked with both our psychological and physical feat, but it’s the body that needs to kick-start the process through detox.
Using drugs can cause mental and physical dependence over time and an attempt to break the cycle of drug abuse could result in withdrawal symptoms in severely addicted individuals. Under the care of our medically licensed professionals our detox program is specifically designed to rid the body of most harmful toxins.
While a sub-acute detoxification does not rid the body completely of all addictive substances, it eases the transition from chemical dependency to a “clean” state by cushioning the acute, painful (and sometimes, fatal) withdrawal symptoms,including increased blood pressure, severe muscle cramping, irregular heartbeats, seizures, and hallucinations.
During this stage of treatment, our qualified personnel will help you rebuild a foundation on which you can comfortably continue your addiction treatment and begin to build new and healthy habits.
All detoxification will be done at our licensed residential home where clients will be closely monitored for 5-7 days, including every thirty minutes for the first 12 hours. We understand that 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

While under our watch, the initial dive into recovery is a safe and comfortable detox that will aid your transition into a healthy, chemically-clean lifestyle while sidestepping the possibility for relapse.
Clients that have completed detox successfully will transition into our residential treatment program and eventually to our outpatient level of care, which has the advantage of being less disruptive to the patient’s life as well as less expensive.
