Our Program

People suffering from drug abuse or addiction will often require detox, the period in which the body must become accustomed to functioning without an illicit substance. This is often the hardest time frame on the path to recovery, and it must be done professionally, with medical supervision.

When a person habitually uses drugs and/or alcohol, they build tolerance and will continue to consume higher quantities to reach the same “high”. Through elevated use over a duration of time, their body becomes physically dependent. When this same person enters detox and stops using these substances, their body will suffer from withdrawal.

Symptoms of withdrawal include anxiety, fatigue, sweating, vomiting, depression, seizures, and hallucinations. It is always recommended to detox under the care of a physician and trained support staff who can monitor the resident 24 hours a day. We believe a medically-supervised environment provides the residents with the best chance to transition into the next phase of treatment safely.

The Nashville Detox 4-step Approach to Detox and Sobriety

1 Intake

The first step on the road to recovery is to start the detox program. Simply call us or contact us through the website to get started. One of our highly trained addiction treatment professionals will walk through all the options we proved and pick the course that is best for your situation.

2 Evaluate

Once the patient is in the detox program, the first step is to be evaluated by a medical professional. Our highly trained staff have years of experience in detox and addiction treatment. The Evaluation phase is vital for the safety of the patient.

3 Stabilize

After the patient has been evaluated, the stabilization phase begins. This is the bulk of the detox timeline, where the patient is taken through the withdrawals they are feeling and are brought to a place of comfort without drugs or alcohol in their system. This phase also requires the supervisor of a trained professional and can last anywhere from a few days up to a full week.

4 Treatment

Lastly, once the patient has been stabilized, long term or short term treatment may be needed to ensure sobriety takes. Our professionals will work with the patient to determine the best next step, whether that is an IOP or Residential Treatment Program.
