Detox Program

Medically reviewed by:

Drug and alcohol addiction is challenging to cope with on your own but if you are ready to find the help that you need, drug and alcohol detox programs are available to support your addiction recovery and future sobriety. It is important to understand that there is no one-size-fits-all treatment that will bring about long-term recovery. This is why we provide tailored drug and alcohol detox programs including inpatient care and support for you and your loved ones.

In this article we will describe the process of detoxification for alcohol and drug addictions, as well as what will follow after a successful program.

About Our Detox Programs

The journey of addiction recovery starts with detox from drugs and/or alcohol detoxification. Once you are ready to take the courageous step towards rehabilitation, we offer a complete inpatient detox program in which addictive substances are safely removed from the body.

To effectively treat addiction, it starts with detox. Only once the substance is no longer active in the body can you truly begin your journey to recovery. At United Recovery, we provide complete detox programs for those struggling with addiction. Our treatment plan starts at the medical facility, where our experienced clinical staff oversees your detox.

When you reduce or quit using drugs and alcohol, you start to experience withdrawal symptoms. These can be unpleasant and potentially life-threatening. During the addiction detoxification process, you will receive professional monitoring, support, and relief from discomfort with the help of prescription medication, but only if necessary.

For anyone who commits to our detox program, they will have the opportunity to participate in our individualized aftercare service, as well as access to a list of recommended support groups. The purpose is to provide patients with the best chance at relapse prevention and long-term sobriety.

Our detox program can support you with 24-hour medical care, including medication to ease your symptoms. Once detox is complete, you’ll enter rehabilitation to receive structured treatment by our licensed therapists. Our rehab program will introduce you to positive coping skills, relapse prevention, and steps to maintain your sobriety.

Detox Programs We Provide

To help you on your road to addiction recovery, we provide medically monitored detox programs that are facilitated in a clinical environment. Our team of addiction experts are here to help you and your loved one during this physically and mentally trying process.

Alcohol Detox Program

To effectively treat alcohol addiction, your rehabilitation starts with our alcohol detox program. During this period, alcohol is removed from the body under the guidance of professional and supportive medical staff. You will experience withdrawal symptoms and while many are apprehensive about the process, we assist every patient with emotional support, medical care, and therapy to facilitate a safe withdrawal.

The withdrawal symptoms from alcohol include fever, nausea, and Delirium Tremens. They may last up to two weeks or longer; however, you will receive treatment through our personalized approach in a comfortable environment.

Drug Detox Program

Our drug detox program is available for those addicted to both legal and illegal substances, including benzodiazepines, opioids and stimulants. We assist patients with medical intervention and therapeutic support to overcome withdrawal symptoms and the physical impact that can result from prolonged drug addiction. Our goal is to help you successfully enter treatment with a positive and hopeful mindset, so you have the best start to overcome addiction.

Regardless of the method, going “cold turkey” is not a supported method. Instead, patients at our detox facility will receive supervised, guided detoxification with tapering and within a controlled timeframe for the safest possible outcomes.

Prescription Drug Detox Program

For those addicted to prescription drugs such as benzodiazepines (Xanax), opiates (Fentanyl) and amphetamines (Ritalin), our medical drug detox program provides access to clinical experts and rehabilitation treatment that supports addiction recovery. We provide an educational approach informing patients of the process of withdrawal and unconditional support to quell fears surrounding withdrawal symptoms and prevent the possibility of relapsing.

In addition, we can communicate with your treatment specialist who has originally prescribed the medication and help create a safer, less-invasive medication for you.
