Medically Supervised Detox

Medically Supervised Detox

Ongoing substance abuse activates significant physical and chemical changes within the body and brain. Therefore, to begin recovery, it is necessary to remove all traces of drugs and alcohol. Medically supervised detoxification is the first step of the addiction treatment process.

A Comfortable Detox Experience

Many people resist treatment because they are concerned about the withdrawal symptoms which can occur during detoxification. Tremors, hallucinations, nausea, seizures, and disorientation may occur when a person attempts to stop using drugs or alcohol at home. Symptoms may range from uncomfortable to life-threatening for people who try to quit “cold turkey” without clinical intervention.

In a medically supervised setting, these symptoms can be negated through a combination of innovative pharmaceuticals. This results in a safe and comfortable detox experience for people addicted to barbiturates, benzodiazepines, or alcohol.

The team at Recovery Without Walls is comprised of experts in the field of addiction treatment, including two MDs (medical doctors) and a dually licensed RN (registered nurse) and psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioner (PMHNP).
