The Desert Cove Recovery Detox Referral Services When individuals become addicted to a chemical substance or alcohol, most times simply making the decision to stop using isn't enough. If they are able to make that decision, it can be dangerous and even deadly to quit “cold turkey.” Many times, an individual keeps using a chemical substance or keeps drinking solely to ward off withdrawal symptoms. Although not every addict requires a detoxification program before entering into a drug and alcohol treatment program, it is extremely important that a professional complete a full evaluation of the individual before making that decision.
When Medical Detox is Suggested: Our admissions team at Desert Cove Recovery performs assessments for each individual to determine if medical detox is necessary. If detox is recommended, Desert Cove will provide a referral to a professional detox service under a physician's orders. There you or your loved one will be able to detox from whatever substance being used in a comfortable, safe, medically supervised setting.
