Detoxification services help a person become alcohol or drug-free and is the process by which individuals are medically monitored for withdrawal and other complications which may occur following cessation of prolonged use of alcohol or drugs. Highly trained medical staff continually evaluate and observe all detox patients to ensure that they are not representing as harmful to themselves or others.
Comprehensive detoxification services include medical and nutrition evaluations and treatment of withdrawal symptoms.
Once an individual is medically stable, the detoxification process focuses on further evaluation of the individual's substance abuse use. Treatment planning is completed prior to discharge so a continuum of care is established.
