Detox can represent a fresh start in life and the foundation of recovery. The Haven Detox makes the process as safe, comfortable, and effective as possible. Instead of adhering to an outdated abstinence model, we offer medication-assisted detox to help relieve the symptoms of withdrawal, giving our patients the optimal chance at success.
 
With a staff of experts to provide encouragement and motivation, our patients benefit from the very best in detox treatment. Once the chemicals have been cleansed from their system, we help them make a smooth transition to the next phase of their recovery program.

 

MEDICAL DETOX SERVICES

 
Acute medical detox is the first stage in the continuum of care. Our dedicated detox facility provides comprehensive services for patients suffering from the effects of chemical intoxication. We specialize in treating the following addictive disorders:
 
Alcoholism. Alcohol remains one of the most widely abused drugs in the United States. According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, over 7 percent of American adults — approximately 17 million — had a problem with alcohol as of 2012. Close to 88,000 Americans die of alcohol-related causes every year. However, only a relatively small percentage of Americans with a drinking problem get the treatment they need to overcome alcoholism and lead healthy, fulfilling lives.
 
At The Haven Detox, we offer advanced detox interventions that can literally change our patients’ futures.
 
Prescription drug addiction. Prescription drug misuse is now surpassing illicit drug abuse as a public health threat in the United States. The World Health Organization reports that prescription drug misuse has become a global problem, especially in the US, where prescription drugs are the most frequently abused substances after marijuana. Commonly abused prescription drugs include pain relievers, sedatives, tranquilizers, and sleeping pills, all of which can be just as dangerous as illicit drugs when they are used for nonmedical reasons.
 
Opiate abuse. Used for centuries as powerful pain-relieving drugs, opiates are also highly addictive. Drugs in this family include natural and synthetic substances derived from opium, including heroin, morphine, codeine, hydrocodone, oxycodone, and many others. According to the journal Pain Physician, over 5 million Americans misused pain relievers in 2012. As central nervous system depressants, opiates pose a high risk of overdose, especially when they are taken along with alcohol or other drugs.
 
Withdrawing from alcohol, prescription drugs, or opiates without medical assistance is not only acutely uncomfortable, it can also be dangerous. The Haven Detox programs provide 24-hour monitoring by experienced professionals who are trained to identify and treat the signs and symptoms of drug or alcohol withdrawal.
