At Covenant Hills, we assess our clients to determine whether medical detoxification is required. If medical detoxification is warranted, they are transferred, or may be sent initially, to an affiliated medical facility where the drug detox begins with medical staff, using medications to ease withdrawal symptoms.

Before rehabilitation can truly begin, individuals must go through a detoxification process. Detoxification is the process of removing the drug toxins from an individual’s body.
Detoxification is an essential component in beginning a comprehensive treatment program because a medical staff and therapy team aid individuals in managing the painful withdrawal symptoms. Detoxifying individuals before treatment begins is intended to increase the likelihood that individuals will avoid a relapse in the future.
Although the detoxification process is a difficult step for many individuals, they will never feel alone or disconnected with their support system. Our partner facilities are filled with dedicated, trained therapists and counselors that understand how difficult it is for individuals to experience mental, emotional and physical withdrawal symptoms.
