WHAT IS DRUG DETOX?
Drug abuse causes the build-up of harmful and potentially deadly toxins in the body. Attendance at a drug detox facility allows users to cleanse their system of these toxins, through a medically supervised course of withdrawal symptoms management. For some addictions, the detox process is so dangerous that medical oversight is required.
Sol Recovery Center is ready to help you or your loved one find quality and compassionate drug detox options that will work best for you. We understand how hard it is to take this first crucial step toward recovery.
Each client’s drug detox program will vary depending upon his or her care needs and factors like age, history of drug use, medical background and past physical illness or injury.
No matter what type of drug detox you seek, relying on an experienced medical professional can help you minimize withdrawal symptoms and intervene in the case of medical emergency.
We offer seamless referral to detox programs so that clients can quickly begin getting the help they need.
