The first stage of drug detox is the evaluation stage. This involves determining what substances the individual has consumed, identifying any potential mental health concerns, discuss any existing medical conditions, and developing a strategy for detox and long-term treatment.
Substance use disorders affect a massive number of individuals across the United States and abroad. According to a report published by SAMSHA, approximately 20.3 million people age 12 or older were struggling with a substance use disorder in 2018. This ranged from alcohol to heroin and cocaine. Just a few years ago, drug overdose deaths in the United States peaked at 72,000. There is hope and help for individuals who have a desire to overcome their addiction and seek treatment. Drug or alcohol detox is the first essential step for those starting recovery from substance addiction.

Our Drug Detox Process
As our name suggests, at Holistix Treatment Center we take a holistic approach to recovery. This means providing a comprehensive experience that addresses all aspects of an individual’s health & wellness: physical, mental, and emotional. Throughout the detox process and beyond, our compassionate team is present to address medical needs, mental health, comfort, and uncertainty. We provide proactive guidance to help clients stay focused on their sobriety goals. When necessary, we can provide over the counter medications, in addition to short term use of prescriptions like Suboxone, Methadone, Naltrexone, Acamprosate, and Disulfiram to mitigate the more severe side effects, symptoms, and cravings that accompany detox. This is an essential aspect of helping some clients in relapse prevention.
