Medical Detoxification is a controlled process that safely and systematically withdraws people from addicting drugs, under the care of our highly experienced medical team led by Dr. Raphael Penunuri. Alcohol and drug use can, over time, result in a powerful physical dependence upon these substances, and stopping can cause uncomfortable and potentially dangerous withdrawal symptoms in people with this dependence.
The Detoxification Process is designed to treat the immediate physical symptoms of withdrawal, and to remove the toxins left in the body caused by chemical dependence and addiction.
Detoxification can be done on both an outpatient basis or inpatient treatment. Inpatient Treatment allows the treatment team to closely monitor the client, preventing access to the substance of abuse and treating the symptoms around the clock, and can speed up the process. Outpatient Detoxification can have the advantage of being less disruptive to the client's life and may be effective if medically advisable. The choice of treatment setting for Detoxification involves many factors, including, but hardly limited to, the substance or substances of abuse, length and history of abuse and amounts used, as well as the client's age, social conditions, and medical and/or psychological issues which may exist with the client.
