For those who struggle with addiction, drug detox is generally the first step in beginning your life of sobriety. That’s because one of the most important steps in your addiction recovery is breaking free from your substance abuse cycle. Drug detox allows the body to rid itself of toxins caused by substance abuse, and begin the journey to lifelong sobriety.

At Harmony Outpatient in New Jersey, our team of addiction specialists manages your withdrawal symptoms and ensures your safety during the detox process. We provide compassionate care and medical services so you can detox safely and begin your journey to long-term recovery.

NOTE: Drug detox can be a challenging, and occasionally life-threatening, process. Do not undergo a detox alone or without the care of a medical professional.

Understanding Drug Detox

When you choose to stop taking an addictive substance, your body will experience both physical and mental side effects. This is because your physical chemistry has adapted to your regular substance use and doesn’t know how to function without it. Some withdrawal symptoms can be mild, like headaches or muscle aches, and some are more severe, like hallucinations, seizures, and even death. This is why it is so important to be supported by a professional during this process!

The medical detox process provides medical support as you remove all toxic substances from your body. With round-the-clock support from our treatment team, capable of rendering medical advice whenever you need it, you can focus on healthy, sober living. Additionally, having a team of professionals nearby greatly reduces the risk of relapse, starting your recovery journey off on the right foot.

Options for Detox: Medication-Assisted Treatment

As a trusted substance use treatment provider, nearly all of our addiction treatment services begin with medical detox. This allows you to begin your drug or alcohol rehab with a clear mind and a lower risk of relapse. However, because we understand addiction looks different for every person, we work to offer an individualized treatment program that benefits patients the most. 

This is why our treatment center in New Jersey also provides treatment programs with medication-assisted treatment for those who need more extensive support to break free from their drug or alcohol addiction, especially those who struggle with opioid addiction.

Medication-assisted treatment includes prescription drugs administered by our staff of addiction professionals to help curb your most extreme withdrawal symptoms. The reasons for needing medication-assisted treatment are varied, and our team of addiction professionals will work directly with you to determine if this level of treatment is necessary for your long-term recovery.

We offer a variety of outpatient treatment services that allow individuals to develop the skills to stay sober.
