Admission begins with a face to face nursing evaluation. Upon acceptance to the program you will be escorted to a comfortable environment, where the process will begin. You will not be judged during this evaluation, it is a necessary component to ensuring an individualized recovery plan to meet your specific needs, in your unique context.
Prolonged use of substances such as opiates, benzos, and alcohol have been proven to form patterns of addiction in the human body. In order to remove these addictive behaviors your body and mind need to rebuilt and heal. During detoxification numerous toxic substances are being removed from your body which causes many people to feel anxious, irritable, and sick. Detoxification and craving are two separate things. Detox time frame can also vary for person to person, while cravings can go on for extended periods of time. It’s important to remember that the experience is individualized and different for everyone which is why every person is treated individually and your treatment will be based solely on your symptoms.
During detoxification it is highly likely that you may begin to feel sick, but our caring team does everything they can to alleviate the worst of your symptoms with medication assisted treatment (MAT) as needed.
