Detoxification

Without medical treatment and supervision, breaking free of addiction to alcohol, opiates, and benzodiazepines can be life-threatening. We admit clients experiencing withdrawal symptoms into our medically monitored Detoxification Unit. Clients in emergency hospital care can also transfer to our facility to receive full medical detoxification on a 24-hour, 7-days-a-week basis.
