​Drug Detoxification (Detox) is one of the most important roles and the first step in the recovery process. Many state that they can’t stop using drugs/alcohol because when they try, the side effects and withdrawals are so unpleasant, that it leads them back to using. Medically monitored detox is available to reduce these unpleasant symptoms and monitor a patient from being at risk of using again, experiencing dangerous side effects or having fatal consequences that can occur from abrupt cessation.

Detox is the first, and most important step in the direction of recovery. Before any individual can begin the road to recovery or enter a rehabilitation facility, they must rid their bodies of the toxic and harmful substances they have been using. Doing this in a medically supervised facility like Desert Mountain Health, allows each client to go through the detox process with the least amount of withdrawal symptoms and risk. Everyone’s experience is different, which is why the process needs to be tailored to fit every person’s unique experience. While detoxing off of these toxic substances always holds risk, it is drastically reduced by the use of medications and 24/7 supervision from an experienced medical team. The help and expertise of trained medical professionals is one of the most proven ways to decrease the symptoms related to detoxing.
