What is Detoxification?
Detoxification is the process of removing harmful and inhibiting substances from the body and receptors in the brain. The effects of these toxins must be completely evacuated from the body and leave the mind unfettered, in order to begin the process of recovery in treatment.
Is detox the same for all drugs and alcohol?
Each substance has its own withdrawal symptoms and particular dangers. The severity of the detox, the process of detoxification, and the medications used to treat a detoxing client differ depending on the substance or substances that were abused, the duration and frequency of abuse, and the quantity of the substance consumed on a regular basis. All detoxes should be medically supervised. It is important that you disclose all substances consumed to your intake counselor so that we can offer you the most effective detox treatment here at The Villa Treatment Center.
Why We Detox?
Detoxing from alcohol and drugs is just the first step in obtaining sobriety. Detoxing will enable you to free your body and mind from the immediate toxic effect of these substances, allowing you to focus on the treatment work that is necessary for long-term recovery from addiction.
It is often the first step in an addiction treatment program and should be followed by residents at a certified and licensed drug and alcohol treatment center. Detox alone with no follow-up is not treatment. Detox is a critical point in the earliest stage of recovery and it is perhaps the most difficult. Compassion and unwavering assistance throughout this critical time is necessary. Once the mind is clear, and the body has time to recuperate your thoughts and feelings will reveal themselves and treatment can begin.

Upon admission, you will be assessed by a medical doctor specializing in the field of addiction who will lay out a comprehensive medication and care plan that best suits your specific detox.

Caring and qualified staff are on hand 24/7 to ensure that you are taken care of, comfortable, and safe at all times throughout the process.
