Medical Detox: Generally 3-5 Days
Detox by itself is not a cure for an addiction. Detoxification from drugs and alcohol is aimed at managing withdrawal symptoms and acute intoxication. It involves cleansing toxins from a patient’s body who has been dependent upon substances.

Understanding Detox Treatment
Further testing starts when a registered nurse does a nursing assessment and the patient’s vital signs to determine whether a patient is ready for detox at our facility. The individual’s health and substance abuse history are reviewed, along with allergies, current medications, or any other factors that may affect his or her health.
A licensed therapist will screen for mental and physical health disorders that affect an individual’s overall well-being. A behavioral health assessment gives us a clear look at the person’s background and needs for treatment, considering 12 different psychosocial factors. This aids us in developing an effective treatment plan for long-term sobriety.
The evaluation also includes a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation and physical examination by a qualified psychiatrist or mental health nurse practitioner.
