What is Alcohol or Drug Detox?

As a person’s body adapts to a substance, they will also become dependent on it. If they stop using their drug of choice, they will experience withdrawal symptoms that usually present as the opposite of the drug’s intended effects.

Withdrawal symptoms can be severe, including headaches, nausea, or shaking, as the body tries to find balance without the chemicals from the substance. In our detox program at Stepping Stone, licensed clinical and medical staff carefully monitor patients around the clock.

Detoxification removes toxins from the body, helping it recover from dependence on drugs or alcohol. This process is necessary to stabilize the body before beginning the next steps in a treatment plan.

What happens in the Detox process?

During your stay in detox, our staff will regularly assess your condition to ensure your safety during this critical period. We monitor vital signs like heart rate, temperature, and blood pressure while checking your mental state. Our medical team may also prescribe medications to lessen withdrawal symptoms.

You’ll have plenty of time to rest, rejuvenate, and reset before joining a community of peers in our inpatient program. The detox process can take up to a few days but will always be customized to fit your circumstances and condition. Our main objective is to stabilize your body and ensure you are mentally ready and physically to begin your treatment program.
