What is detox?

Detox – In detox treatment centers, clients are admitted by licensed nurses and staff who monitor clients 24 hours a day. Detox provides medically monitored withdrawal services to ensure that clients discontinue their drug or alcohol use safely and comfortably. The setting in which the program is administered can vary from one treatment center to another and each center uses a variety of medications to minimize discomfort and complications  of withdrawal. Clients receive addiction education and licensed professionals will work with each client to develop an individualized treatment and aftercare plan. The length of stay varies at each facility.
