Detox is a cornerstone of the Recovery Unplugged inpatient treatment experience. Programs typically last between five and seven days, depending upon your progress. Your detox program is designed according to your care needs and monitored by an experienced doctor and team of medical professionals. Whether you need withdrawal help for alcohol, illicit drugs or prescriptions, Recovery Unplugged offers substance abuse detoxification for a full range of issues, including but not limited to:
Each type of addiction comes with its own withdrawal period, and you or your loved one need a program that effectively relieves your specific physical and behavioral symptoms. For example, opioid withdrawal will yield a heightened sensitivity to pain, while cocaine withdrawal may cause you or your loved one to be paranoid and erratic.
The doctors and nurses at Recovery Unplugged are trained to provide expert treatment for all types of withdrawal. The detox process helps safely and comfortably purge your system of the drug and alcohol-related toxins that have built up in your system so you can begin focusing on the behavioral stages of the drug treatment process.

Alcohol and drugs hijack your brain’s chemistry to the point at which your central nervous system is tricked into thinking that it needs them to function properly. Withdrawal occurs when you or your loved one suddenly stop using drugs or alcohol after a prolonged and untreated course of abuse.

When you’re struggling with alcohol or drug withdrawal, it’s critical that you get professional help, rather than go “cold turkey”. Medical detox offers a variety of benefits, including:
Medical professionals who are trained to effectively treat all types of addiction withdrawal. Addiction-trained detox doctors and nurses can help you overcome the worst of your symptoms so you’re able to focus on getting clean and starting rehab.
Rather than go through withdrawal by yourself in your home with no resources for safety, comfort or relief, medical detox allows you or your loved one to heal in a clean, comfortable atmosphere where you can get clinical and emotional support.
Buprenorphine (Suboxone®), Lorazepam, Phenobarbital, Diazepam, and Librium are just a few of the medications that our doctors may choose for your care. Along with “detox” medications, comfort medications are available and are provided at the doctor’s discretion. These medications alleviate nausea, headache, chills, sweats, and other symptoms.
The reality of withdrawal is that it can be dangerous, and at times life threatening. Our doctors and nurses monitor you or your loved one around the clock to intervene in the event of any type of medical emergency, such as breathing, cardiac or respiratory issues.
Addressing the physical aspects of drug addiction is only half the battle. After clients are medically stabilized and cleared to continue their treatment, they will undergo a thorough and comprehensive course of rehab. This process will allow them to address the behavioral issues associated with their drug addiction and learn to confront the origins of their substance abuse.
