St. George Detox Hospital provides inpatient, medically-assisted detoxification from alcohol, benzo’s, opiates, and stimulants.
Detoxification is often the first step in beginning the process of recovery. It is also often the most difficult step to take because it can be quite uncomfortable. The primary objective of detoxification at St. George Detox Hospital is to get each individual through the complete withdrawal process with both comfort and safety. The treatment team at St. George Drug and Alcohol Detox Hospital understands the difficulties of chemical detoxification and uses techniques aimed at reducing the discomfort of detox from alcohol or other drugs.
Withdrawal from alcohol or drugs can be both scary and painful, with a range of symptoms that vary from mild to quite severe. Some common withdrawal symptoms included sweating, anxiety, headache, nausea, shakiness, and insomnia. In many cases, withdrawal can be dangerous and take varying lengths of time depending on the substances being used. This is why it is important to withdraw under medical supervision.
The medical providers at the new state-of-the-art St. George Detox Hospital facility specialize in addiction medicine and oversee the safe medical detoxification of all patients. Registered nurses provide care, including the administration of medication to counteract the uncomfortable symptoms of withdrawal and evaluate any other medical and mental health problem.
We also provide daily support to all patients, including counseling and family support as well as continuing care arrangements.
