Detox is the important first step to addiction recovery, but it’s a frightening first step. Our goal at Prominence Treatment Center is simple: make the detox process as comfortable as possible.
Detoxification at Prominence Treatment Center is supervised by a triple board-certified, addiction doctor. This same physician is also board certified in psychoanalysis and psychiatry as part of our Dual Diagnosis Non 12-Step program. Our detox program is provided for the following addictive substances:
- Opiates (Heroin, Oxycodone, Percocet, Vicodin)
- Benzodiazepines (Ativan, Xanex, Klonopin)
The following substances do not require medical detoxification. But Prominence Treatment Center follows similar protocols in an effort to make the stabilization process from substance use to sobriety less severe for the individual.
- Tramadol (Ultram)
The detoxification process is accomplished by gradually withdrawing the individual from the addictive substance(s). Our highly trained physicians and nursing staff manage the entire detoxification process. They make sure the appropriate medication is administered and the withdrawal symptoms can be significantly reduced or prevented; symptoms that might otherwise occur if alcohol or other substances were stopped suddenly. While the detoxification is in process, the individual is monitored 24-hours a day. During the detox process, the individual is invited to attend therapeutic groups and individual sessions to further help reduce or eliminate primary and secondary detoxification symptoms.
