What To Expect in Our Medical Detox Program
Before medical detox starts, we evaluate each patient’s drug and alcohol consumption, as well as their physical and mental well-being, including any co-occurring disorders. This assessment helps us develop a comprehensive treatment plan.
Patients at The Recovery Village Palmer Lake detox in quiet, comfortable rooms. They may have 24-hour medical care, medications that manage withdrawal symptoms and nutritious meals designed around their withdrawal needs. They’ll also receive one-on-one counseling check-ins with their licensed therapist.
