Medical Detox

When a person with a drug or alcohol addiction problem decides to stop using, the withdrawal symptoms can be severe and require medical supervision and detoxification. Thankfully, with the right medically-informed methods, you can avoid the risk and severity of addiction withdrawal symptoms. Valley Hope provides medically-monitored detoxification (detox) that comfortably clears the drugs and/or alcohol from your mind and body by minimizing the symptoms of withdrawal in a safe, caring and healing environment that protects your health and prepares you for successful addiction treatment. Detox is an important and essential first step of healing from addiction that allows you to better mentally and physically focus on your treatment for addiction.

Medically-monitored detox is an evidence-based medical process available onsite at each Valley Hope inpatient treatment center. Detox generally lasts just a few days under 24/7 supervision by our medical team. Each patient undergoes a complete health assessment, including a physical and a lab profile, and receives around the clock monitoring throughout the withdrawal period. When necessary, medications help further reduce the severity of withdrawal symptoms. When detox is complete, you can move on to the next phase in our continuum of care as assessed and recommended by your clinical care team.

Health Assessment

Your medically monitored detox process begins with a full medical evaluation, including a physical and lab profile, by Valley Hope’s nursing team and attending physician. The assessment will inform your detox plan, including detox timeframe, supervision, treatment recommendations and any necessary medications.

Medical Supervision

Valley Hope provides 24/7 medical supervision during the detox process to ensure your mental well-being, safety and comfort. During this time, you will also connect with your primary counselor and case manager. Once you are medically cleared, you are ready to begin the next level of care, most likely inpatient treatment.

Medication Assisted Therapy

Valley Hope provides medication assisted therapy to manage withdrawal symptoms. These medications can alleviate discomfort, prevent dangerous symptoms and help with cravings.
