What is Detox or Detoxing?

As a person becomes tolerant of a substance, they will also become dependent on the substance. Over time, if they stop using, they can experience withdrawal symptoms that often are the opposite of the drug’s intended effects.

Withdrawal symptoms can be severe, including shaking, headaches, or vomiting, as the body tries to balance itself without the substance. In our detox program at Cornerstone, patients are carefully monitored 24/7 by licensed medical and clinical staff.

Detoxification removes substances, or toxins, from the body, helping it recover from its dependence on alcohol or drugs. This process is necessary to stabilize the body before beginning the next steps in a treatment plan.

What happens in a drug and alcohol detox process?

During your stay in our detox unit, our staff will regularly assess your physical condition, monitoring vital signs like blood pressure, temperature, and heart rate, as well as checking in on your mental and emotional state. Our medical team may also prescribe medications to ease withdrawal symptoms during this process.

Most importantly, you’ll have plenty of time to rest, rejuvenate, and reset your body and mind before joining a community of peers in the residential program. The detox process can take 24 hours to a few days but will always be customized to fit your specific condition and circumstances. Our main objective is to stabilize your body and ensure you are healthy enough to begin your treatment program.
