Drug Detox

At Quantum Behavioral Health, we believe that healing from drug addiction requires a continuum of care to ensure long-lasting success in addiction recovery. Your drug addiction did not develop overnight, in fact, it progressed over an extended period of time for a variety of compounding factors whether it be emotional distress, traumatic memories, or incidents of the past, or it was a learned behavior that you utilized as a coping strategy. Regardless of what the initial cause of your drug addiction was, we believe that each individual living with active drug addiction has been doing the best they can with the tools that they have. We will work alongside you every step of the way as you begin to unravel and unpack the emotions and traumas that are associated with your drug addiction so that you can begin the healing process of drug treatment. There is a light at the end of the tunnel of drug addiction and at Quantum Behavioral Health, we are dedicated to supporting you in finding your way in a newfound life of sober living. 

Drug addiction impacts a person’s life by creating physical, emotional, and mental dependency on your drug of choice., Effective treatment programs will support patients in addressing each aspect of their drug addiction in order to provide a holistic healing experience that provides long-term sobriety. The first step in the addiction treatment process is addressing the physical dependence to drugs through a drug detox program. At Quantum Behavioral Health, we provide patients with a luxury detox center that will promote healing and relaxation as you cleanse your body of the harmful effects of drugs and alcohol.

What Is Detox Like?

Throughout your drug detox program, our team of medical professionals and addiction therapists will be supporting you to overcome the physical addiction that has developed to drugs while also providing an opportunity for your body to clear out the harmful toxins and effects of drug abuse that has built up in your system. During drug detox, your body will begin to adjust to functioning without the influences of drugs and alcohol which can produce unpleasant or uncomfortable side effects otherwise known as drug withdrawal symptoms. As you experience withdrawal symptoms, you will have the thorough supervision of our medical staff that will be monitoring and assessing your symptoms as they arise. Your drug detox treatment plans will include medical interventions including medication-assisted treatment that will work to alleviate the severity of your drug withdrawal symptoms and reduce any emerging drug cravings that are significant or intense.

What to Expect During Drug Detox?

When you first arrive at our treatment centers, one of our addiction counselors and medical team will meet with you to gain an understanding of your unique history of substance abuse. Together, you will complete intake paperwork and medical assessments that will help us understand the severity of your substance use disorders and the impacts it has had on your physical, emotional, and mental health. This information will provide us with the necessary background knowledge and insight on your substance abuse which will allow us to create a customized detox and treatment plan that is centered around your specific needs for addiction treatment and healing. Your personalized treatment plan will incorporate different methods of addiction therapies including behavioral therapy, holistic treatments, dual diagnosis treatment for any cooccurring disorders, and medically assisted treatment to ensure that you are provided with a whole-person integrated approach to drug treatment and healing. A  typical drug detox program will last anywhere between three to ten days depending on the severity of your substance use disorders.

You will reside within our treatment centers to complete your drug and alcohol detox. Each patient will be provided with a comfortable room that offers luxury amenities that will take care of all of your physical and emotional needs. Patients will only have the potential of sharing a room with one other patient but each individual person will be provided with their own tv and area in the room that is designed to promote relaxation and healing. Patients can access any of our luxury amenities throughout your detox and addiction treatment program including a holistic spa, massage therapy, salon services, and access to our onsite movie theater.

Acute Detox

Acute detox is for individuals that are living with a severe drug or alcohol addiction that has resulted in your body becoming physically dependent on the substance to feel normal and function throughout each day. When you have attempted to stop drinking or abusing drugs, you will experience severe and painful (sometimes dangerous or life-threatening) withdrawal symptoms. It is important for anyone going through an acute detox process to do so within a medically supervised detox program that will provide you with the ongoing support of licensed nurses and physicians. Patients in a medical detox will be provided with the appropriate levels of care and medical treatments to safely overcome your drug and alcohol addiction.

Sub Acute Detox

For patients that are going through a drug detox but are experiencing mild to moderate drug withdrawal symptoms that are not life-threatening or severe, you will be able to undergo a sub-acute detox program. This will allow you to complete your drug detox within your own home or sober living home while attending the treatment center in an outpatient rehab format. Patients are able to have flexibility in their detox and treatment schedule as your symptoms do not require the ongoing intensive supervision of an acute detox.
