We usually try to limit family contact during the detox process and let the clients take this time to themselves. That being said, we can update families on their loved ones’ progress during the detox stage. After detox, clients will have more opportunities to communicate and interact with their families.

Make note that we almost always solicit the family’s input prior to starting treatment with a new client – to help us customize his or her recovery plan. We see addiction recovery as a family-wide process, so their involvement is paramount.

We have a 7 to 10 day detox program. Medications are given on a taper system, and dosage is determined by a licensed physician. The length of detox is determined upon by appointment.

Medications that may be given include:

  • Methadone – Strictly used to detox heavy methadone use. The dose is slowly decreased until the client no longer needs the medication.
  • Hydroxyzine – Helps reduce anxiety symptoms.
  • Subutex – Used to reduce anxiety, agitation, muscle aches, sweating, runny nose, yawning and cramping.
  • Ambien – Short-term use to aid with sleep during detox.

We also encourage taking Epsom salt baths to help aid in muscle relaxation. Melatonin and valerian root may be given to help the client sleep.
