The word detox brings with it many negative connotations, and many people are downright afraid of it. Detox is a challenging part of recovery, but it is also necessary, and with the right kind of help, it will go easily and smoothly.
Detox looks different for different people. Some may transition from using their substance to being clean from it fairly quickly and painlessly. Other people experience more serious side effects that make them want to give up on recovery. It is important that each person get the level of care and personalized attention they need during detox, in order to help them continue the journey to recovery.

Providing Support and Care during Detox
Detox can take a few days or a week or longer, and we will be here for you every step of the way. It took you a while to get where you are with your substance use and addiction, and it will take some time to get your body and mind back from that. During detox, you will be cleansing your body of all the toxins you’ve been feeding it, so that you can completely and finally immerse yourself in the therapy and rehab that is yet to come.
You do this by allowing your body to rest and recharge, by eating nutritious meals and staying hydrated, and by utilizing our encouragement and support. When you feel like quitting, and you will, we are here to lift you up. Our experts will meet with you regularly to begin the rehab process already at this time, so you understand why you are going through detox, and you can set goals that will help you continue through each new stage of recovery.
Detox is not something to be afraid of. With supportive care, you will see it as another necessary step toward getting well. Contact us at (855) 456-0622 to learn more about our detox services, or to speak to one of our admissions staff.
