Drug Detox FAQ

Entering drug or alcohol treatment can be overwhelming, especially if you aren’t sure what to expect. Here are answers to common questions:

How long will I stay?

Detox treatment typically takes 5-7 days, depending on the substance. However, we allow clients to recover at their own pace if they need more time.

What is life like?

Detox is the first and most crucial step toward recovery from addiction. During this phase, your focus will be entirely on your health and wellness. Our expert medical staff will monitor your well-being 24 hours per day to help you safely and comfortably manage withdrawal symptoms.

What happens after detox?

After completing detox, our team will help you develop an aftercare plan to give the tools you need to rebuild life in recovery. This may include outpatient treatment, counseling, a recovery residence or treatment for co-occurring disorders if needed.

What if I need support after treatment?

All of our clients receive ongoing support after treatment through our alumni community, which includes access to a counselor.

Do I Need Detox Treatment?

Recovery from addiction is a personal process, and not every person starts their journey with detox. How you start your own recovery journey depends on your addiction history, the substances involved, and the severity of your dependence. The questions below can help you understand if you need to start with detox:

  • Do you struggle to function on a daily basis without drinking or using drugs?
  • Do you turn to alcohol or other substances to manage stress?
  • Do you drink excessively or use other substances to celebrate?
  • Is your alcohol or drug use damaging your relationships or preventing you from fulfilling life obligations?
  • Is your alcohol or drug use interfering with activities that you once previously enjoyed?
  • Have you experienced physical or emotional side effects that are impacting your health?
  • Do you experience physical withdrawal symptoms if you try to stop drinking or using a particular substance?
