What is Detoxing?
Detoxing is different for everyone. During this stage of your program, the drugs and or alcohol will be flushed from your system. It will take longer for some because various drugs affect your body and mind differently. Your detox will be a personal experience. Our physician will examine you and make sure your medical needs are addressed while you are detoxing. If medication is necessary, it will be prescribed to you. While you are detoxing, you will not be able to begin your classes, but together, we will focus on getting you through this critical time.
Once you are ready and not under the influence of any alcohol or drugs, your recovery work can begin. You will be clear-headed and feel more like yourself. Together, we will start the recovery process.
