Mind & Body

Our patients are offered individual and group therapy sessions facilitated by our Clinical Director, licensed in multiple modalities in the treatment, including trauma and eating disorders. Our Behavioral Health Technicians are also available to lead groups as well.


Scottsdale Detox Center is a medical private in-patient detox facility; however, we are different from other detox centers. Not only do we provide a safe medically assisted and comfortable detox from drugs and alcohol, but we also start the process of healing the mind.

Since our opening, Scottsdale Detox Center has always realized the importance of having a master’s level clinical therapist and case management for all patients. Our Clinical Director is also a licensed independent substance abuse counselor. 

Why is this important?

A patient’s detox is only the beginning. After detox, there are many options to prevent relapse. Intensive outpatient, individual therapy and residential treatment are some of the many options.

Our clinical staff are responsible to provide therapy, groups, case management and discharge planning. By offering these services, we are setting the tone for what to be expect after discharge. It gives us the ability to assess what may trigger the substance use. By understand the patients’ needs and triggers, we can match them with the most appropriate aftercare.

Our team of Behavioral Health Technicians (BHT) also supports the clinical team by offering sunrise and sunset groups. These groups are often involving art, meditation, guest speakers and much more. This provides more opportunities to understand patient needs and customize care.

Scottsdale Detox Center is committed to ensure every patient is safe and comfortable during the detox, as well as, looking at the patient holistically to ensure they begin healing the mind as well.



  • What is Medical Detox?

    Detox is the short form of the word “detoxification,” which means the removal of toxins from the body.
    Medical detox is detoxification that takes place under medical supervision.
    Detoxification is the process of eliminating a drug from your body while simultaneously managing the symptoms of withdrawal from overuse and abuse of drugs or alcohol.
    More often than not, drug and alcohol detox can feel like a daunting task because managing the symptoms of withdrawal can often be very painful. However, it is the first step in recovery from substance abuse.
    A successful medical detox program ensures that the detoxing person is comfortable and safe from many medical risks that might arise from discontinuing use of alcohol or drugs. It is just the beginning of a long journey to a healthy life.
    Detox should be followed up with behavioral therapy, or medication, if necessary. Addiction experts recommend that detox without follow-up is not conducive to successful recovery. At Scottsdale Detox Center, we will help you identify the best next steps and create an after care plan.
    At Scottsdale Detox Center, our primary detoxing goal is to rid the body of the harmful substances that are present from prolonged drug or alcohol abuse, so that you or your loved one can begin healing both mentally and physically after being dependent on a substance.
  • The First Step in Recovery - Detox Center

    People struggling with drug and alcohol addiction often believe that rehabilitation is all they need for successful recovery. The reality is that rehab is one step in the continuum of care - and it is not the first one. Many people are unaware, but medical detox is the first and perhaps the most important step in the recovery process. People who begin their treatment at a detox center often have a better recovery rate than individuals who go straight to rehab. Detox enables the individual seeking detox to prepare for the journey ahead, both mentally and physically.
  • Benefits of Detox

    There are many physical benefits of enrolling in a medical detox treatment. Getting sober in a certified facility with licensed medical professionals can be one of the safest choices. Our staff of physicians and nurses can effectively manage the process by administering medications that reduce the time required for detox and that ease the severity of the withdrawal symptoms.
    Once detoxed from drugs or alcohol, the patient can stabilize physically and mentally and then proceed with further rehabilitation and treatment, including group and individual counseling. Our professionals work with patients during their detox to identify the best next steps.
  • Withdrawal Symptoms

    Depending on the drug you or your loved one may be struggling with, the time required for withdrawal and the severity of withdrawal symptoms will vary. The symptoms may include restlessness, muscle and bone pain, diarrhea, vomiting, cold flashes, seizures, delirium, coma, or even death. Our treatment helps manage these symptoms to create a comfortable, safe detox.
  • Individualized Treatment Plan

    1. In the detox program, a detailed medical history will be gathered to ascertain which substance you or your loved one are addicted to and how severe the addiction is.
    2. Next, under the supervision of clinical staff, you will begin withdrawal from this substance.
    3. A team of psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists and behavioral health technicians will help you handle the mental aspects of withdrawal.
    4. Once that is complete, a rehab and plan of care is identified for your unique situation.
  • Substance Abuse

    Detoxification and withdrawal may not make complete sense without explaining how the body becomes addicted to the substance in the first place.
    When a person uses a chemical or substance for a long time, the chemistry of their body, mainly in their brain, is altered. When the substance enters the body, it induces great feelings of pleasure through the release of dopamine. This rush of pleasure causes the person to repeat those actions. As the person becomes more and more dependent on the substance, the person needs larger quantities to elicit the same response.
  • After Detox Treatment

    When thinking about taking this first important step in your recovery it’s important to choose a facility with licensed medical professionals to help you through this process.

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
