Withdrawal Management (Detox)

The program operates 24/7/365 and is designed to serve individuals who are intoxicated or under the influence of other drugs and/or who are experiencing moderate to severe withdrawal symptoms and in need of 24-hour supervision, observation, and support as they progress through their withdrawal.

It is licensed by the Office of Behavioral Health as a 3.2 Withdrawal Management (WM) program, and is considered by the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) to be a Clinically Managed Residential program.



The primary goals of the withdrawal management program are to:

  • Monitor patients as they safely withdraw from drugs and/or alcohol

  • Assist in increasing motivation for change so that ongoing recovery is possible

  • Actively link patients to the services for ongoing care

  • Provide a safety net for the community
