Your doctor may talk with you about the level of care that makes the most sense for your needs. Many people who need treatment for addiction start with detox before moving onto an inpatient or outpatient program.
Medical Drug & Alcohol Detoxification
Many people fear the detoxification process. Detox can be dangerous, especially when done alone. When you go through detox with a medical treatment team, professionals will work around the clock to keep you as safe and comfortable as possible.
Once you complete detox, you’ll be fully ready to enter rehab with a clear mind and body, allowing you to make the most of the new techniques you learn for stress management and trigger avoidance.
