Restore BalanceA Clean Slate
Detoxification – what most people call detox – is the process of removing the harmful by-products of alcohol and drugs of abuse from the body. When you stop using drugs or alcohol, your body begins to detoxify itself, which if not properly managed causes intense emotional discomfort and extreme physical cravings. If you struggle with an alcohol or substance use disorder, the prospect of going through detox may sound intimidating and overwhelming. It may even prevent you from seeking treatment. As scary as it may sound, detox is often a critical first step on your journey to recovery, sobriety, and long-term health. We use specialized medication to help smooth the difficult transition from substance use to recovery.
