Medical Detox is used to safely break the cycle of chemical dependence through the use of appropriate medications. Detoxing at home or outside of a medical setting could result in relapse, overdose, and death to due to medical complications during withdrawal. In fact, research indicates that contrary to the assumed belief that enduring a painful detox will act as a relapse deterrent, there is no correlation between discomfort during detox and sobriety rates. In addition, a primary cause of relapse during detox is physical discomfort while a critical factor for those who successfully transition from detox toward treatment and ongoing recovery is a high level of physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, and social support.
At Nexstep Medical Detox, before establishing an individualized detox treatment plan, we comprehensively assess each client’s history, consider any co-existing medical and/or mental health conditions, and review the client’s own long-term wellness goals. Following this in-depth assessment, a personalized detox protocol is designed and administered by our medical and clinical staff. Medications to manage potentially dangerous withdrawal symptoms as well as discomfort, anxiety, and sleeplessness are available and administered by nurses 24 hours a day.
Because we believe medical stabilization through detox is the beginning of an ongoing recovery process, our providers, nurses, and therapists provide safe, effective, comfortable medically assisted detoxification from addictive, mind-altering substances while helping to lay a foundation for sustainable long-term recovery through unconditional positive regard and a safe, supportive environment.
