Why Not Do a Home Detox?

Detoxing from alcohol and drugs is extremely dangerous and life threatening. Detox symptoms can range from mild to severe, with symptoms that include anything from nausea to delirium tremens. Doing an alcohol or drug detox without the proper knowledge on detoxification and the side effects involved, puts one in extreme danger. Medical supervision is imperative for optimum safety of the detoxing addict.

What is Medical Detox?

Medical Detoxification is a program developed to safely treat the symptoms of drug or alcohol withdrawal. At Royal Life Centers Detox, we safely remove toxins from the body using medication and therapy to manage withdrawal symptoms. The medical care we provide in our detox center is superb, guests are taken through the detox process in the safest and most comfortable way possible. Addiction treatment should always first start with a medical detox program.

Medication-Assisted Treatment or MAT is something that we use at Royal Life Centers on an individual basis. Besides the common comfort medications, we offer different medication-assisted treatment options to manage withdrawal symptoms and discomfort. Depending on your case, you could be a candidate for MAT to help treat symptoms of withdrawal during the detox process.

Medical Detox Treatment

During medical detox treatment, our guests are evaluated and monitored through out their inpatient stay at our medical detox facility. Medical professionals are available to guests 24/7, to ensure their safety and tend to any individual needs. At Royal Life Centers Detox, our staff is well-versed with all variations of substance abuse, and keep a common goal in mind to care for our guests and support their long term recovery. No matter the drug abused, our medical professionals will evaluate and assess our guest’s health status, to individually treat each concern.

After Medical Detox Treatment

We recommend following our medical detox treatment with another one of our inpatient programs. At Royal Life Centers, we offer a residential inpatient program to follow guests from medical detox and continue their addiction treatment. Our philosophy is to treat the mind, body, and spirit. Although going through a medical detoxification is extremely important, it is only the first step on a journey to recovery. The National Institute on Drug Abuse states that alone, medical detoxification does little to change long-term alcohol or drug use. Because of this, Royal Life Centers provides many treatment options that support our guests at every stage of the recovery process, to create lasting sobriety. Because We Care.
