The detoxification process from drugs and alcohol is different for each individual, based on their physiological response to the specific drugs they have been using. A typical detox lasts anywhere from 3 to 7 days, depending on the drug(s), and each person's needs are different. Our doctor is board certified in addiction medicine, giving our clients security in knowing that they are receiving the most knowledgeable and appropriate care for their personal situation. In addition, our nurses work closely with the doctor to monitor your progress and coordinate care to get you to the next step in the treatment process. Our doctor utilizes specific medications to help you safely come off of the addictive substances, with as little discomfort as possible. Finally, depending on your specific situation, we will determine the amount of oversight and specific hands-on care you need in the detox process. If your detoxification requires a level of care that we do not provide, we will be sure to get you into the right facility.
