Congratulations on taking that first big step towards considering drug and alcohol detox and addiction recovery. We have treated people with various addictions in our treatment centers and we understand that entering treatment is a difficult decision to make. Your recovery starts here – and we’ll happily guide you through the entire process.
Our treatment centers create individualized sub-acute detox plans for each client based on their usage history and their individual health. There are various health implications that need to be taken into account when beginning a detox, so we do a full mental and health assessment before a client begins a sub-acute detox regimen. We also take urine and blood samples as needed so that we may test them for substances in the body.
Regardless of the context and the substance, the main goal of this stage is to fully detoxify the client, wiping the slate clean for the rehabilitation treatment program. Things to consider before choosing a detox method:
- The severity of the addiction, how long the individual has been taking the substance and the strength of their last drink or dose.
- Has the individual attempted a detox and recovery program before?
- Is the individual feeling physically and mentally able to begin detox treatment?
- Does the individual have a strong preference for detox treatment to take place in a specific location?
