What to Expect During Detox

teen-in-therapy-sessionBefore you can begin your journey on the road to recovery, you must be cleansed of all intoxicating substances. This addiction detox is a crucial time, and one that must be handled with the utmost care and urgency. The scale of your dependency and the length of time you have been dependent on drugs or alcohol will determine the length of your detox and what additional assistance you will need while going through this process.

Your safety is our top priority. Under the close supervision of our qualified staff and in comfort of our residential treatment center, you will be given the time and space to work through this process with the highest level of respect and dignity.

Once you enter our facility and it has been determined that a detoxification is necessary, we will develop a plan of action as determined by your needs.

Our years of experience with addiction detox have provided us with extensive knowledge of the many possible side effects that occur during this process.

As with any detoxification process, the harmful substances in the body must be replaced with healthy substitutes, therefore our team will develop a nutrition plan to help you on your road to a healthy lifestyle. As the body begins to take in the nutrition and expel the harmful toxins, cravings will lessen and our focus can turn to mental and spiritual recovery, leading you into the next phase of our program where you will continue on your path to a new and healthier you.
