Our Detox Program

The Benefits of Our Drug & Alcohol Detox Program

Detoxification, or detox, at Life Center of Galax is often the first step in our patients’ recovery journeys. During the process of detox, the bodies of those we treat are cleared of the harmful substances that resulted in physical dependence. We believe that this phase of rehab is crucial in order for men and women of Virginia to effectively participate in the other facets of care that we offer. Furthermore, by partaking in detox, our patients are able to achieve the clarity of mind they need to focus on healing and recovering from the additional factors that may have contributed to their addictions in the first place.

Regardless if a patient participates in our Wolf Edge, Dual Diagnosis, DUI/DWI, Opiate Recovery, Prodigal Christian, or Military Services program, he or she can benefit from our detox program and receive top-notch medical supervision from our ASAM certified medical director and 24-hour nursing staff.

Additionally, and for those who require medication assisted treatment following detox, our addiction rehab center is pleased to offer the following medications for individuals looking to overcome an addiction to opiates:

  • Methadone
  • Buprenorphine
  • Vivitrol

The above medications are offered to alleviate nagging drug cravings and the uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms that are known to emerge once a person is no longer abusing opiates. When these medications are consumed, patients are able to play active roles in our programming and work on establishing recovery goals and skills that can serve them well for a lifetime.

If you or someone you care about would benefit from not just Life Center of Galax’s detox services, but also from the other exemplary and transformative treatment that our addiction rehab center offers, please contact us at your convenience.

At Life Center of Galax in Virginia, your brighter, healthier, and substance-free future awaits.
