Detox Treatment and Therapies Beginning Addiction Recovery

Evidence-Based Treatments

The goal of detox treatment is a safe and comfortable withdrawal. When choosing a detox program it is important to address the psychological aspects of addiction as well as the physical ones.

During a patient’s stay with us, our case management team will complete a Bio/Psycho/Social assessment of the patient’s current- and post- detox needs. Our case managers will focus on creating and implementing individualized treatment plans with the patient based on their specific needs and goals.

When deciding to stop, the first step towards a healthy lifestyle is a detox to help remove the substances from the body. Physical dependency is one of the hardest thing to overcome when when a substance user who is addicted to drugs or alcohol decides to stop.

If a substance user suddenly stops, their body will start going through a withdrawal period. In addition to being dangerous, withdrawal can be extremely uncomfortable and painful. The good news is, it doesn’t have to be.

At Scottsdale Detox, we offer natural services to help patients through the detoxification process. Detoxification is the medical process that systematically and safely withdraws addictive drugs and alcohol from the body, under the care of a physician and supervised care.

We use a combination of medical protocols to assist in this process:

  • 24/7 medical staffing
  • Cardiac and video monitoring
  • Withdrawal symptom management
  • Nursing staff specialized in addiction treatment
  • Rapid micro-induction
  • Oral medication
  • Proper nutrition
  • Regular body movement sessions

Detox Safely & Comfortably at Scottsdale Detox

Psychologically detoxing from drugs and alcohol is one of the most important parts of addiction recovery. We have trained addiction specialists on staff that begin to prepare the mind for the next step in their journey while they work to heal their body. While the mental focus is more high-level than inpatient rehab, it is an essential first step in encouraging patients to continue to the next phase of treatment. Typically we see two primary settings for psychological detox.

Top Two Settings for Psychological Detox

Individual Therapy

Individual therapy typically involves a licensed therapist and a patient working one-on-one to identify their unique circumstances that have led to addiction. This process is also essential in understand a patient’s willingness to commit to recovery and any underlying mental health concerns that may be present.

Group Therapy

Group therapy is offered daily at Scottsdale Detox and is run by our addiction specialists along side patients currently receiving treatment. Group therapy is an opportunity for patients to relate to others in a similar predicament, and discuss problem resolution together or role play various scenarios.

The most common therapy protocols at Scottsdale Detox are:

  • Stages of Change Overview
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) – Emotional regulation
  • Addiction Cycle vs Recovery Cycle
  • The Brain on Stress (Overview of fight/flight/freeze and the benefits of
    coping skills)
  • Warning Signs of Relapse
  • Relapse Prevention: A review of evidenced-based practices that prevent
    relapse and support a successful recovery from addiction
  • Emotion Management
  • Post Acute Withdrawal Syndrome
  • Consequences: Exploring the areas of life impacted by addiction
  • Letting Go: An interactive group to understand how releasing the past can
    clear the way for healthy recovery
