Medical Detox in Palmer Lake

Don’t start alcohol or drug withdrawal alone. Going to a medical detox at our facility ensures withdrawal is as safe, comfortable and successful as possible.

  • I use drugs or alcohol to avoid feeling withdrawal symptoms

  • I’ve used substances for a long time or in large amounts

  • I’ve tried stopping by myself before, and it didn’t work

  • I’m addicted to alcohol or benzodiazepines; these withdrawal symptoms can be fatal

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’ll also receive one-on-one counseling check-ins with their licensed therapist. 

  • A safe, substance-free environment

  • 24/7 medical monitoring

  • Treatment for withdrawal symptoms

  • Medication-assisted treatment (when appropriate)

This was a great experience. Most people leave reviews like this is some resort but it is a recovery center. This was my second time here and I have 158 days. Made lots of friends and built a good network in my sober community. Just remeber that recovery is selfish, you have to want it, and that "ITS NOT AN OPTION" -Dr. G Update 01/15/2024 (347 days since my last drink)

I can't begin to describe what an amazing experience I had here. This was my first rehab experience, and I must say, I think I got really lucky with where I landed. The Recover Village is just that- a village of therapists and behavioral staff that will help you heal and thrive on your journey of sobriety. I was really scared when I initially got there, not having had any experiences with rehab facilities in the past, but as I settled into the Residential and PHP classes, I began to make friends not only with the therapists/staff, but with my fellow peers as well. Although I hope I never have the need to go back, I know that I will always have this place as a safe and healing rehab to come to if I or any of my friends/family members ever need it. Thank you to everyone who made my journey to recovery so successful. Cannot recommend this place enough! I will miss this place.

Best investment I've made in ME! Personalized treatment, good food and staff that genuinely cares. The medical detox was closely monitored for safety and helped me feel completely secure. Doctors, nurses, and BHTs on site at all times. Not enough room for me to say/write all the great things about PLR!

How long is medical detox?

The length of your detox will depend on the substances you’ve been using, your withdrawal symptoms and your physical health. Most clients complete the medically supervised detox period in 7–10 days.

Can I detox at home?

We do not recommend most people detox at home. Withdrawal can be uncomfortable at best, which often leads people to relapse. Alcohol and benzodiazepine withdrawal symptoms especially can be fatal without onsite medical care.

Does medical detox work?

Yes, having 24/7 medical supervision means doctors can ensure you get through your drug or alcohol detoxl. However, detox is only the first phase of addiction treatment; you’ll continue with additional treatment and counseling strengthen your recovery long-term.

Will I receive methadone, suboxone, etc. during detox?

The Recovery Village Palmer Lake offers medication-assisted treatment (MAT) as medically appropriate. Your clinical team will determine your needs and eligibility for MAT.

Insurance may cover some or all of the cost of a medical detox. Without insurance, The Recovery Village Palmer Lake can discuss private payment options with you.
