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.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Detoxification admission is first-come, first-served weekdays from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.; the lobby is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The number of people we can admit on any given day depends on the availability of beds. Intake is closed on the weekend.
