Areas of Specialization
Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.
IV therapy allows us to immediately and effectively treat any discomfort caused by your withdrawal symptoms
Hand picked caring and compassionate doctors and a nursing staff with Emergency Room backgrounds to ensure your safety and comfort during the detox process. We treat you like a human being not a prisoner.
Individual rooms with HD TV and internet access that allow you maximum comfort and privacy during your stay.
