Addiction Treatment Programs In Virginia

Alcohol Detox

The process of detoxification from alcohol is the first stop on the road to recovery. This is also the most vulnerable time due to uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms. A medical alcohol detox program will provide 24/7 medical care and medication-assisted symptom management.

Drug Detox

No matter what substance you’re struggling with, physical and chemical dependency is a life-changing experience. Attending a drug detox treatment center can alleviate withdrawal symptoms and make this sober transition easier.

Dual Diagnosis Treatment

A dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder requires an integrated approach to treatment for both a mental health and substance use disorder. Co-occurring disorder treatment takes a holistic approach to pursue complete wellness.
