Completion of medical detox in a safe, controlled facility like ViewPoint Center is far more effective than when teens attempt to detox at home. Overall recovery though medical detox is also more likely to be successful. Here are some reasons why:
Medical detox prevents relapse - when teens go through withdrawal, they often go back to using drugs as a way to stop the effects of withdrawal. Many begin to use in large amounts, which can lead to overdose and even death.
Experienced, highly trained staff - at ViewPoint, our highly experienced medical and therapeutic staff assist teens through the entire withdrwal process. Our clinically advanced services not only allow for a safe withdrawal process, we can also help determine the underlying issues causing drug ues to occur in the first place.
Smoother transitions, post-detox - after teens go through medical detox at ViewPoint, they are more likely to find success when they transition to another theraputic program such as a residential treatment center or a wilderness therapy program.
Medical detox in a safe, supportive environment like Viewpoint allows for teens to be more open to further therapeutic experiences in the long term.
