Detox is the very first step on the road to sobriety and involves the process of removing any toxins from the body as a result of excessive alcohol consumption, while under the supervision of medical staff. We can also provide medication-assisted treatment to help make the detox process more comfortable.
Residential or inpatient treatment is where patients live at our treatment center so they can be immersed in a supportive, structured environment. It’s ideal for those who are new to recovery and at a high risk of relapse.
