Detoxification is the recovering of your body from the physical dependencies of substance abuse in a supported and stabilized environment. Detox works by weaning your body off of the harmful substances it was depending upon to function, while allowing for the restoration of healthy bodily function. Depending on the type of drug you are detoxing from, the length and frequency of use and your general health status, the detox phase of recovery can last anywhere from 3 to 10 days.
Medically-managed residential detoxification services are appropriate for clients whose level of physiological dependence on alcohol and/or other drugs requires prescribed medication for the management of withdrawal.
Supervised by our Medical Team, Casa Serena’s Residential Detox provides 24-hour medically managed care and support to control withdrawal symptoms and stabilize clients as they prepare for treatment and recovery.
During this time, our team will make you as comfortable as possible and provide continuous monitoring of your withdrawal symptoms. You can expect to have a wide range of emotions throughout this process, and our clinical team will be there to support you through this first step of your journey.
Once you have safely completed detox we will transition you to our residential treatment program, where you will begin to uncover the underlying reasons for your substance abuse and learn the tools you need for achieving long-term sobriety and good mental health.
