When it’s time to get help for drug or alcohol addiction in Utah, at Nexstep Medical Detox, we know it’s normal to wonder whether a Salt Lake area rehab or detox program should be your first step. What’s the difference, and which one is right for you? We’re here to help you decide.

The Difference Between Detox & Rehab

Detox is usually the first step to addiction recovery. It involves more of the physical effects of getting addictive substances out of your body so that you can go on with life free of their influences. You can then go on to outpatient or inpatient rehab, or a program like sober living.

Rehab programs or addiction treatment centers focus on helping you with the more psychological effects of your addiction. Once the substances are out of your system, rehab focuses on building constructive ways to keep them at bay. We recommend a combination of both detox and rehab for the best chance at recovery.

The Benefits Of Our Medical Detox Program

To heal and start making better decisions regarding recovery, you first have to get toxic and addictive substances out of your body. Medically assisted detox makes this process more safe and comfortable for you in a neutral environment, increasing your chances of success.

Detox will be one of the most vulnerable times during your recovery. We make this journey easier on you by providing all the support you need as you take this first important step. We strive to provide you with the best care from the moment you reach us. Coming from out of state? We can even pick you up from the airport.

Not all detox centers are the same, and many unique features set our program apart.

Why Go On To Rehab?

Once you get drugs or alcohol out of your system, you may wonder why taking that next step to rehab is necessary. Drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs provide the counseling and education you need to avoid depending on these substances again in the future. They help you get to the root of the habit so you can see warning signs in yourself early and stay healthy.
