Our Detox Process
Most long-term rehabilitation programs include a detox period. This is a time for cleansing a person’s mind and body of harmful substances. Withdrawal is a normal event but also something we must treat immediately because it’s often a very uncomfortable (and sometimes dangerous) experience for the patient. Fairwinds Treatment Center takes a unique approach to detox, helping the patient better manage their drug or alcohol withdrawal symptoms and keeping the patient active during the process.
Fairwinds Treatment Center does not offer detox as a stand-alone program. However, we take a unique approach to detox as part of a holistic treatment plan designed to get our patients working on their recovery as soon as they arrive.
At Fairwinds a doctor will determine the length of a patient’s detox program and base it on the types of substances abused, withdrawal symptoms and their current state of health. The same guidelines apply if he or she is in recovery for alcohol, drug addiction or both. The severity and types of withdraw symptoms depend on both the patient and the type of substance the patient is addicted to. Because of the many variables, our detox plans are customized for each patient.
If you know a friend or loved one suffering from addiction, please call Fairwinds Treatment Center today. Dr. M.K. (Khal) El-Yousef and staff use a dual diagnosis approach as part of all of our treatment programs to treat drug and alcohol addiction.
