Medical Detox

Take Your First Step Towards A Brighter Tomorrow.
At Innovative Health, we’re here to fight for your future. Substance use disorder is a nationwide epidemic, with fatal overdoses tripling in the last three decades. We provide our clients with the opportunity to confront their addiction and begin the path towards recovery. Our outpatient treatment gives clients the chance to get addiction treatment at a medical detox center without disrupting their daily life.

Many people who struggle with substance use disorder have developed a physiological dependence on their substance of choice. Because of this, a sudden absence of the substance will lead to withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms can be unpleasant and even dangerous if dealt with alone, which is why we offer medical detox. Our medical detox service allows our clients to manage their symptoms in a safe and comfortable environment under medical supervision.

How It Works
Although detox is not a cure for addiction, it’s a vital step to take when beginning your recovery process. Most treatment facilities will require clients to undergo medical detox before beginning treatment. At Innovative Health, we offer medical alcohol detox as well as medical opioid detox. Other substances we offer medical drug detox from include prescription drugs, stimulants, and synthetic drugs. Once you have gone through the medical detox process, you can start rehabilitation and begin your recovery.

Detoxing under medical supervision is important because withdrawal symptoms can be uncomfortable and even dangerous. Withdrawal can have both physical and psychological effects, so attempting to detox on your own can lead to a quick relapse, or a medical condition. That’s why we offer detox under the care of fully licensed and trained clinicians, so you can safely rid your body of substances. We monitor you and your symptoms and help prevent life-threatening withdrawal complications such as seizures, heart attacks, and death.

Our detox treatment program begins with a set of comprehensive evaluations, including a physical exam and screenings for alcohol addiction and substance use disorder, co-occurring disorders, and other underlying medical conditions. Medical detox typically lasts between 3 to 14 days. The length of detox is determined by several factors including the type of substance, the duration and frequency of use, the quantity of substance consumed over a period of time, and weight.

We’ll help you manage withdrawal symptoms.

Withdrawal is a combination of physical, mental, and emotional symptoms. Understand these symptoms and the varying intensity.

Psychological symptoms are:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Paranoia
  • Insomnia
  • Panic attacks
  • Intense drug cravings
  • Short-term memory loss

Physical symptoms of withdrawal include:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Fatigue
  • Fever and chills
  • Shaking
  • Excessive sweating
  • Heart palpitations
  • Flu-like symptoms
Why Go Through Medical Detox?

Certain substances lead to more severe and possibly lethal withdrawal symptoms, which is why detoxing alone is not recommended. It is very dangerous to withdraw from substances such as alcohol, and opiates as they trigger intense withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms include a rapid heart rate, seizures, hallucinations, heart attack, and even death.

In many situations, medication assisted treatment (MAT) will be introduced during the detox program to alleviate symptoms of alcohol withdrawal and opioid withdrawal. These medications include suboxone, buprenorphine, vivitrol, sublocade, and naltrexone. Without medical supervision, withdrawal from certain substances can be lethal. Our experienced medical staff will treat the most challenging symptoms so you can safely detox and begin recovery.
