What is Medical Detox?

Medical detox is the crucial first step in overcoming substance abuse. It involves safely managing withdrawal symptoms in a controlled environment.

At Northpoint Recovery, our Boise-based medical detox program offers a supportive and secure setting to help you begin your journey to recovery.

Detoxification is essential for cleansing your body of harmful substances. Attempting to detox alone can be dangerous, as withdrawal symptoms can be severe and even life-threatening.

Our medical detox program provides 24/7 medical supervision to ensure your safety and comfort throughout the process.

Our Medical Detox Process:

  • Assessment: A thorough assessment helps us understand the individual’s medical history, substance use patterns, and any co-occurring mental health conditions. With this information, we develop a personalized detox plan tailored to the client’s specific needs.
  • Stabilization: During stabilization, our medical team provides the necessary medications and therapies to manage withdrawal symptoms effectively. With 24/7 medical supervision, any complications or discomfort can be promptly addressed, ensuring a safer and more manageable detox experience.
  • Transition: This phase bridges the gap between detox and long-term treatment. We work closely with each client to develop a seamless transition plan, whether it’s moving to our inpatient rehab program or another form of treatment, ensuring continuity of care and support.

Who Needs Medical Detox?

  • Experiencing Withdrawal Symptoms When Not Using: If you experience these symptoms when you stop using the substance, it’s a clear indication that your body has become dependent on it.
  • Unsuccessful Attempts to Quit on Your Own: If you have tried to quit using the substance on your own but have been unable to do so, medical detox can provide the support and supervision you need. 
  • Using Substances to Avoid Withdrawal Symptoms: Continuing to use substances to prevent withdrawal symptoms is a common sign of physical dependence. This cycle can be challenging to break without professional help.
  • Increasing Tolerance of the Substance: If you find that you need to use more of the substance to achieve the same effect, this indicates an increasing tolerance, which is a hallmark of physical dependence.
