Medically Supported Detox

Medically Supported Detox - Detox

OHL offers medically supported detox services to individuals 18 or older suffering from addiction and withdrawal. OHL’s Medically Supported Detox accepts clients and referrals for its program 7 days a week.

OHL's Medically Supported Detox Facility has beds available for individuals who cannot afford private detox and rehab, but who do not need the high level of care of a hospital-based detox. The Medically Supported Detox utilizes basic oral medications to treat symptoms of withdrawal. OHL’s Medically Supported Detox Facility is appropriate for people who have chronically abused many types of substances, especially opiate pain pills, prescribed anxiety and muscle relaxing medications, alcohol, and heroin.

Detox treatment typically lasts 5 – 7 days. To ensure a safe medically supported detox, 24-hour on-site medical staff is present to assist with a comfortable detox. OHL's detox team is comprised of physicians, nurses and counselors who are trained to care for clients during detoxification.

As the OHL Medically Supported Detox is affiliated with OHL's other substance treatment programs, the motivated client can easily transition to OHL's Short-Term Adult Residential program or be referred to community intensive or supportive outpatient services based on their individual needs.
