The Details of Detoxification

For many, many people, the rigors of withdrawal prevent them from being able to stop using drugs or alcohol on their own. That’s why a medically supervised detoxification program is a key first step in substance use treatment programs—including the program at French Creek.

Before a person is admitted to French Creek Recovery Center, they undergo a full medical examination and complete a health history that includes details of their recent use of drugs or alcohol. The medical team will determine whether detoxification is necessary.

Following detoxification, clients begin the process of integrating into the rest of the French Creek community and taking part in the rehabilitation portion of the treatment process.
