What is Medical Detoxification?

The sustained use of certain substances causes adaptations within the body. Once the use of those substances is discontinued, those adaptations can result in discomfort, pain and sometime life-threatening complications. These are known as acute withdrawal symptoms and may include anxiety, restlessness, joint pain, stomach cramps, nausea, insomnia, and others. The goal of Medical detoxification is to provide a safe, comfortable withdrawal from these substances with the support of medical and clinical. Medical staff will help to provide control of acute withdrawal symptoms through supportive care, 24/7 nurse monitoring, medications and client education.
