The Detox Process

Our alcohol and drug detox program in our residential treatment centers provide the perfect environment to safely detox from substances such as alcohol and drugs, the therapy to heal your associated triggers and the community to support you through sobriety.

We understand the difficulties surrounding addiction and take an empathetic approach to your symptoms and the withdrawal process. Our detox residential program provides clinically supported medication to ease withdrawal symptoms with round the clock supervision in a safe, home-like environment. Once you’ve successfully detoxed, typically 5-7 days, we’ll assess your next level of care which includes therapy, case management sessions in an individual and group setting and holistic healing.

Our Safe and Supportive Medical Detox Program

Our goal is to make the detox process as safe and comfortable as possible. As part of our residential rehab admission process, you will meet with our clinical team to determine if detox is the right step. If so, we’ll assist you throughout the detox process with medication-assisted therapy as well as your transition into our full residential rehab program.

Medical detoxification, or medical detox, is the often first step in recovery from substance abuse to safely manage withdrawal symptoms in individuals who have become physically dependent on a substance.

Our full continuum of care offers seamless transition beyond detox and rehab, which includes our sober living homes at New Life House, our in person or virtual outpatient programs, Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), or weekly therapy options, offered by our partners at Neuro Wellness Spa.

      I can’t say enough good things about Clear Behavioral Health. The care that I received was exceptional. The staff are very professional and committed to providing outstanding treatment. They go out of their way to cultivate an atmosphere of compassion, awareness, and recovery.

      The multi-pronged approach; the counselors, individual therapy, nutrition, sympathetic/empathetic counselors of each group session shifted my brain paths. You are never finished there, even when you “graduate”, they hold alumni group sessions when you feel you need it. I have nothing but gratitude for their program.

    • star star star star star

      Clear Behavioral Health is my second family that I never knew I had that supported me and continues to passionately support the sober community. The therapists, counselors and group facilitators have been amazing in helping me have a voice, loving myself again, and seeing the world in a new light. I am eternally grateful.

      Liz R.
    • star star star star star

      From the get go, the staff made me feel welcome and were all very friendly. My therapist and case manager were also very helpful and supportive throughout the whole process. I found that the somatic therapy was the most valuable for me, the therapist who ran those groups was great. My biggest takeaway from treatment was to take the time to pause, not be afraid to ask for help, and not worry about things in the moment. If you are looking for meaningful change and being part of a new and supportive community, then Clear Behavioral Health is the right fit.

      Overall I loved the experience and did not want to leave. The staff was very helpful and motivated me to stay even when I felt like running away. I also built meaningful connections with my therapist and case manager who gave me a lot of useful advice and are still supporting me today. Since leaving, my family and sponsor have noticed a big difference, and I could not recommend a more supportive environment for addiction and mental health treatment, Clear saved my life.
