Drug & Alcohol Detox
Withdrawal from alcohol and drugs leads to physical symptoms experienced when someone stops using a substance upon which their body has become dependent. Because the addicted brain has become so dependent on the drugs or alcohol, stopping abruptly can be life threatening. It is for this reason that many people cannot "just say no." Detoxification from drugs and alcohol – or withdrawal stabilization – is the medical process of safely removing an addictive substance from the body.
At Enterhealth, every drug and alcohol detox is closely supervised by our addiction-trained medical experts and withdrawal symptoms are carefully managed. Using the latest evidence-based medical protocols, the most effective anti-addiction medication therapy and a 24-hour on-site medical staff, our detox services are provided in a safe, private environment.
Enterhealth Ranch offers medical withdrawal stabilization for the following (and other) substances:
- Alcohol (beer, wine and liquor)
- Benzodiazepine (tranquilizers), Valium, Xanax, Ativan, GHB and others
- Opiates – Heroin, OxyContin, Codeine and others
- Multiple Substance Combinations (i.e., alcohol and opiates or marijuana)
Of course, alcohol or drug detox alone is not addiction treatment. Rather, it is a technique used to get the substance safely out of a patient’s body so that proper addiction treatment may begin. After withdrawal stabilization, your loved one will be treated according to his or her personalized treatment plan, as developed by the Enterhealth medical team.
