The thought of detoxing from drugs or alcohol can be terrifying. Many who try to break free from addiction on their own either relapse to avoid the withdrawal symptoms or put their lives at risk. With the right medical treatment and supervision, it’s possible to safely make it through detox and get on the right track to recovery.
Through our detox program at The Raleigh House, we offer support and guidance throughout the entire detox process to help you overcome withdrawal and let your body heal.
Detox is the process of giving your body time to rid itself of drugs or alcohol. It is the first step in an addiction treatment program where you’re monitored and supported as your body starts to heal from addiction and work through the withdrawal symptoms.
When done at a credible addiction treatment facility, licensed medical staff are able to monitor your progress and ease withdrawal symptoms with medication. This is a safer and more effective approach than trying to detox alone at home.
When searching for the right rehab facility, you want one that provides an experienced and licensed clinical staff with credentials to provide detox treatment.

This means we are able to provide clinically managed residential withdrawal to clients who are at a moderate risk of withdrawal and need 24-hour support.
