Overview Features & Benefits Locations Insurance Information

A life of sobriety begins with a safe environment to detox.

The first step for the majority of people starting treatment for substance use is detox. Bradford understands that the initial process can be intimidating, but also dangerous if done alone. That is why we provide a supportive and comfortable place to medically detox safely and onsite at our residential rehab facilities.

What is Detoxing?

Detoxing is abstaining the body from alcohol or drugs until they are no longer physically dependent on the substance. Removing intoxicants is necessary, as it stabilizes the body before considering the next steps in a recovery treatment plan.

As a person becomes tolerant of a substance, they will also become dependent on the substance. With repeated use, the withdrawal symptoms of the substance will manifest as the exact opposite to the effect of the drug.

This opposite effect exhibits in the withdrawal process, which often includes severe symptoms such as shaking, headache, or vomiting, as the body seeks to establish homeostasis without the substance. In our detox facilities, the patient is safely managed by medical professionals experienced in treating drug and alcohol addiction.
