ViewPoint Center provides medical detox services, allowing teens struggling with substance use issues to take the first steps towards recovery and treatment.
Attempting to detox at home is far less effective than completing a medical detox in a safe, highly controlled facility such as ViewPoint Center. Teens who go through medical detox at ViewPoint Center are more likely to be successful because:
- Medical detox prevents relapse. When teens go through withdrawal from substance use, they often go back to using drugs as a way to stop the effects of withdrawal. Many begin to use the drug in larger amounts, which can lead to overdose and even death.
- Experienced, highly trained staff. ViewPoint Center has highly experienced medical and therapeutic staff assisting teens through the entire withdrawal process. The clinically advanced services not only allow for a safe withdrawal process, Viewpoint Center also help determine the underlying issues causing drug use to occur in the first place.
- Smoother transitions post-detox. After teens go through medical detox at ViewPoint Center, they are more likely to find success when they transition to another therapeutic program such as a residential treatment center or a wilderness therapy program.
Medical detox in a safe, supportive environment like ViewPoint Center allows for teens to be more open to further therapeutic experiences in the long term.
