Length of treatment: generally 3-5 days.

Detoxification is the medical supervision of withdrawal from alcohol, opioids or benzodiazepines. Medical management is sometimes necessary because the symptoms of withdrawal from certain drugs can be dangerous and even life threatening. For example, withdrawal from alcohol can cause seizures and convulsions which can be fatal. Detoxification takes place in an inpatient or overnight program that provides around the clock evaluation and management of withdrawal symptoms.

Counselors work with clients to develop a treatment plan and find services to guide them through the next phase of treatment and recovery.
